Hi guys,

I'm relatively new to editing and my question of the day is:

How did they do this cracked face effect in this video: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkpwyU9HnF8"]YouTube - Siddharta - Ring[/ame] ? (It appears at 00:50)

Is there any necessary "gimmick" while filming or is it a mere edition effect? What software does that?

Someone please enlighten me, I can't get over this thing!
