    Default How to: The Conan O'Brien Show Effect

    I've been going crazy trying to do the Conan O'Brien Effect that I learned how to do from the Wrigley Video Tutorial. But I can't find the Transparency controls, only the Opacity shows up on the Effects Control.

    Please Help!

    The opacity control and trans[arency are often the same thing. But as I've no idea what a Conan O'brien effect is and your image is just a black image I'm not sure how else I can help - sorry.

    Eh...


    What the hell's the "Conan O'Brien Effect"
    It's not about what camera you use or how much it cost.

    It's about what you shoot,
    how you shot it,
    and how you edit it :P

    Default Moving Lips in A Still Image

    The Conan O'Brien Show effect is when they get a still picture and have moving lips on that picture. Just wanted to know how to do that effect in Premiere Pro 2

    Aah, we had this conversation a couple of weeks ago as well. I'm sure it was called something different then though. My, how times are a'changin'! This business sure doesn;t stay still for long does it?

    Seriously though. Easy enough.

    You need your face on layer tow and your animated mouth (to be shown through) onlayer one.

    All you then need to do is mask off the area of themouth on layer 2 which will show through the the mouth in layer 1. The trick in Premiere alone though is to create a feathered mask - which Premiere won;t do naturally. Maybe someone can advise better here but I would create a black/white feather matt in an image editor (Photoshop) and use that in Premiere along with some sort of image-matt effect to punch the whole.

    My article/tutorial on fading titles in/out up thepage will explain how it;s all done as it;s the same technique.

    I know I shouldn't be staying up till one on fridays, (I only had 4 brownies) but I am so wierd I know what you are talking about. Here is a weirdo video I found:


    Just get a mask of an oval around the video and place it on top of the base image, with a bit of a blur.

    I'm sure there was a thread about 3 or so months ago that featured software that did this automatically. Seem to remember the Mona Lisa...
