    Default Whta's the name of this Effect?

    Hey guys,

    Noob question here, Watch the first 10 seconds of this video

    Can anyone tell me the name of this effect, the kind of orange distorted lighting effect around the borders of the image. Does anyone know what it's called and how I got about doing it in Adobe?

    Thanks guys!

    Looks like some sort of lens flare to me. I don't Adobe so I can't tell you how to do it.

  3. Default Not a lens flare

    Its not a lens flare the effect is actaully called a film burn. You can purchase them but one single clip can be up to $200. Here is a link for some free ones theirs four of them in hd and the rest are in sd but they scale up well. ProLost - ProLost Blog - FilmBurn

    If you are going to buy some artbeats do two collection's called film cutter and film clutter 2

    How does one tell the difference between "lens flare" and "film burn"?

    they look different, lens flare looks more like when you watch the sunny sky through a round window or through glasses or the windshield while film burn will look like it's starting to happen from the edges of the screen or so but there won't be longer light lines coming from their origin.

    At least that's how i think

    You could get a passable similar effect by creating a colour still-frame and adjusting its transparency to the level you want using the fade effect.
