Digital Dutch Angle vs Physical Dutch Angle

Recommended Posts

As part of our student film, we'd like to have a long steadicam shot which employs a varying dutch angle.

If we add the tilting with After Effects, would the result be the same as if we had done it physically?

Dutch angles are pretty easy with a Steadicam. Doing it digitally means you have to enlarge the image in post so that you've got enough spare image area to put in the dutch angle,.so you may find that you're reducing your image quality unacceptably.

If you are shooting at resolution higher than what you are going to edit at then this would be fine. It's ok if you lose some resolution by doing this effect at post but it would never be ok to do this for something you were getting paid for
