View Full Version : VFX - create flickering video effects in combustion / AE

05 May 2003, 09:13 AM
Hi guys, i am new in compositing, would like to ask for help in creating flickering video effects ( don't know whether i have the correct name, but i wanted to create those video interference effects with lines distorting on some footages...)

at 1st i thought to try with adding a lines ( with transperancy ) graphic layer with created by photoshop, then add on the footages and try to keyframe the video filters / effects...

if u guys got any opinion on that?

in combustion check out operators from video group..

(in Combustion 2.0)

for a quick solution to creating a flicker: Operators/Particles/Stobe Brightness

For the lines on the video you can import a frame with matte or use the Venitian Blinds Operator to create and animate lines to taste

You should probably also add some Grain and bump of the levels

and for the distortion go to Operators/Distort and play with the options there until you get something you like

Hope that helps
