    Default Help...what is this effect called and how can I use it?

    Hello all, does anyone know what this constant flashing effect is called?



    Where would that lightning/flashing be located in my program? It's throughout the whole video...57 seconds would be a perfect example of what I'm talking about.


    I use Sony Vegas Pro 9.

    It could be just a fade to white transition run very fast. Try it and see if it works.

    can use fade to white..can use a quick soft flash transition..anything really..just need to make it a very quick animation.

    But how can I Insert it in between clips? For example, it only lets me add the transition either at the start of the clip or the end..how can I add it in the middle or at a specific part?

    Two ways I would attack this.

    1 use a short bit of generated Media white and place above the clips where, use a small fade on the white clip if required, I normally use 3 frames for a flash

    2 In the transitions section there is a soft and hard white Xfade drop that over the where the clips cross. Push one clip in to the next for the required amount of frames, then drop the Transition in there....

    Raed the manual, play with the software, it can make all the difference.

    Split the event in the middle where you want the flash to occur. Now you have two events.

    Do this by moving to the point on the video in the time line where you want the split and press the "s" key.
