flash of light 1/2/2005 3:10:42 PM   (Total replies: 2)
Hello everyone! I was wondering if you could offer me some help. I would love either an effect or a transition (probably a transition), where, as the video plays, there is a flash or two of (white) light. This kind of effect is either in Sony Vegas or Adobe, not 100% sure. There isn't a lightning bolt or anything, but the screen flashes white for about quarter of a second, and then carries on with the video. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Cheers for the suggestion, but it doesn't really work - it looks like a white picture, and not a flash of light. Any other suggestions?

Tried that, much more effective than the single picture, but it doesn't really give the effect I want. I'd really like an effect on the video where it flashes light very quickly, like there was an unseen blot of lightning. If this sort of effect isn't possible, then it's not a massive deal, and thanks for the help!

I did notice that it tends to be darker for a short while after the flash. What I have tried to do, is do a double flash, where there is a flash (of 1 frame), then fading in from white and going darker for a couple of frames, then another flash, then fading in from white again. Not bad. Cheers for all the help!

Has anyone got any custom made titles? I made this one, called it 'Action Movie': <Title name="Action Movie" iconid="13" > <Param name="InternalName" value="TitleMultiTitles" /> <Param name="Description" value="Flies in left and right" /> <Param name="ShadowOutline" value="Shadow" /> <Param name="IsItalic" value="True" /> <Paragraph> <Param name="EntrancePosition" value="1.5 0.4" /> <Param name="MainPosition" value="0.3 0.4" /> <Param ...

Also made this one: Title name="Question, Response" iconid="13" > <Param name="InternalName" value="TitleMultiTitles" /> <Param name="Description" value="Delay between first and second lines" /> <Param name="ShadowOutline" value="Shadow" /> <Param name="IsOneLine" value="True" /> <Paragraph> <Param name="EntrancePosition" value="0.4 0.4" /> <Param name="MainPosition" value="0.4 0.4" /> <Param name="ExitPosition" value="0.4 0.4" /> <Param ...

Made some more, based on the fade and zoom. Tried to do this initially with the mutiple one, but it simply didn't work as I wanted it to, so I had to make sepearate ones with the standard titles. These ones fade in, zoom in whilst moving centrally, then fade out again. There was a nice, unexpected 'curve' effect, which makes this look realy good, I think. I remember seeing this effect in some films, but can't remember which ones! Maybe in Superman, when listing the actors... Anyway, here's ...

Update: delete the <Param name="HorizontalAlignment" value="Left" /> and <Param name="HorizontalAlignment" value="Right" /> lines in the Zoom to Centre titles, as it is then more adaptable to longer and shorter sentences.

Made a couple more, and that'll be enough for now! <Title name="Top to bottom zoom in out" iconid="13"> <Param name="InternalName" value="TitleStandard"/> <Param name="Description" value="Zoom in from top to middle, zoom out from middle to bottom"/> <Param name="EntranceEffect" value="EffectFade"/> <Param name="ExitEffect" value="EffectFade"/> <Param name="EntranceDuration" value="1.0"/> <Param name="ExitDuration" value="1.0"/> <Param name="EntranceZoom" value="0.5 0.5"/> <Param ...

Ok, just 2 more quick ones! Similar to the orbit ones, but this time, a loop: <Title name="Loop from left 1" iconid="13" > <Param name="InternalName" value="TitleStandard" /> <Param name="Description" value="Right then down" /> <Param name="ShadowOutline" value="Shadow" /> <Param name="EntranceEffect" value="EffectNone" /> <Param name="EntranceDuration" value="1.0" /> <Param name="ExitEffect" value="EffectNone" /> <Param name="ExitDuration" value="1.0" ...
