Hey guys. This video has an effect that I find kind of neat and I have been trying to figure out how to do it with no luck. The video is
The effect is from 4 seconds to 12 seconds.
The effect is the flashing lights.
If anyone could tell me how to do that in Premier or After effects that would be great!
(preferably in premier)
This is an easy effect, but you have to either purchase or find for free (via an internet search) what are called "light leaks." They are also known as film burns, or film clutter, though they are technically slightly different.
Here is a link to a forum post with freebies: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?257299-20-free-film-burns!
All you do is stack up a clip with light leaks on V2 and change the opacity, or better yet, use a blending mode like Screen or Overlay (found in the Opacity parameter in the Effect Controls panel). Adjust opacity to taste.
Hope that helps.
