Identifying an effect



The effect I'm curious about occurs at about 25 seconds into the video: TIMECODED LINK

I've seen a similar effect before-- it seems to be quite common. Can anyone point out what effect it is, or if it is done manually, how to do it?

Thanks! Wink

RE: Identifying an effect
This is all referenced to After effects, also this is me guessing... so I can be wrong:

If you mean the transition into the scene with Twi that's called CC Lens, under distort. Pretty simple effect to do.

If you mean the actual scene with flashing then that looks like a color filter of some sort of course with a sync'd adjustment layer with changing brightness. Either he did it manually which would work fine in this case since its so short.

But odds are he cranked up the base in the song, converted audio to key frames, then linked it to the brightness property with a basic expression. Its a lot easier than it sounds, just take some time to play with expression to get your flashes looking just right. Plus sometimes the actual key frames need some touching up, but AE does most of the leg work as long as the song has a solid bass beat. Which this one does here. I've included the link of the video I always referenced when I needed audio key frames.

Good luck.

RE: Identifying an effect
Are you talking about that transition?
I use Vegas, and if i wanted to make something like this... I would use Iris - Circle out. And i would change the footage with Swirl or Deform. Im no expert, really.

This level of reasoning is possible for TerriccotaPie!

@Dynamic Seagull: Yeap, CC Lens was what I was looking for! The flashing guide will be useful though, thanks for pointing it out! I've tried doing it with Trapcode Sound Keys and Shine, but it didn't turn out how I wanted. I'll give that method a try, thanks Big Grin

@TerriccotaPie: I use After Effects, but thanks for pointing it out, it might come in handy to anyone else using vegas who might be interested in the same effect. Cheers Smile

RE: Identifying an effect
Knowing your style, I'd say that Premier is a viable choice since it can do most of the stuff that SV can do, and I think you rely more on scene selection and careful flow than use of effects.
