Thanks!

How to simulate this effect? 24 Dec 2012 18:19 #19254

If you're talking about the flashing light leaks during the title sequence, those would be called light leaks. If you're talking about the old movie frame style in the next section, I'm not quite sure what that's called.

This link talks about a Vintage plugin

www.fcp.co/final-cut-pro/news/853-motion...r-that-old-film-look

but the shots aren't colorized like that old film, they're merely framed like the old film, for that I'd think you can probably get a cut out frame overlay which you'd put over your existing clip to mask it with a old super8 sized frame hole to simulate that look.

I notice they still use light leaks near the end of that section too. He's experimenting with some different color flashes in his light leaks, mostly yellows, but red near the end.

Nice Gypsy Kings track.

This specific frame posted is not a light leak but a lens flare.

I was going by his question which asked about the "first few clips" of the video.
Though there might have been the odd flare, it was sure heavily loaded with flashing light leaks.
But then it gets into the vintage frame look.

So... until he elaborates, I'm not quite sure which specific effect he's curious about...

Yeah, there's several things going on at once. Light leaks, lens flares, vintage looks, film damage, etc, etc, etc...

Hey guys, sorry for not elaborating on what I was asking... I know there are several light leaks and lens flares but that isnt what im asking. I am asking how they made the effect of the black box (the old film framing).

I know you can make a tranparent matte box and make this effect simply... however I dont think this is how they did this. It looks to me like there is some sort of attachment that goes on the camera with thist ype of framing...

Are there such things as a camera attachment or is this some sort of handmade effect/ plugin?

If you look closely at the edges of the framing it isnt just a solid black line there is a small outline that is opaque and distorted that makes me think this is actually shot through some type of glass with a black fram around it...

Hope some of you have the answer! Thanks for all the responses!

Oh that. Super easy. I'd do it in Motion, though. Just black shapes with a composite mode. The blurriness around some of the edges you're talking about are done with a composite mode and/or another mask. I say Motion as you're going to build several elements to do this. With a shape who's edges go from black to gray or white, you can composite these so that the opacity is effected by the gray scale level. Or creating an edge that reflects. Several ways to do it.

It doesn't look like a big deal, just some playing around in Motion.

And to get the images either side make 2 clone layers with various animated blur effects.

Clones or duplicates? I'd duplicate, not worry about cloning them. I'd want each to be unique. Just a thought.

Yeah, either would do. I go into automatic template thinking mode. If making it as an effect for FCPX then clones would be essential.

Edit: actually not essential, if you wanted them unique you could make them drop zones.

Oh yeah, there are reflections in the frames on each side, didn't see that the first time. Thought it was just one thing on top of a full frame video. So yeah, I see what's happening there. Yeah, clones.
