Thread: How do I do these video effects?

    Default How do I do these video effects?

    Hello, I'm new to this forum. I'm a freelance videographer that works with Final Cut Pro. I'm now getting into doing music videos for musicians, I just wanted to know how to do a few things that I see in a lot of music videos today. I'm not too skilled with post effects, but I am learning. Maybe a few veterans can tell me what it all means.

    It's all in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJqsrgKPC50

    I'm not really into the music, but I think the video work was magnificent.

    -@1:31 It seems like the main character in this video is "phasing in and out" and a green tint and reddish tint is outlining his body. I can't for the life of me figure out what that is. It happens pretty much everywhere in the video.

    -The widescreen look? Is this shot in a specific way to achieve that? Or did the editor just crop the top/bottom to give it that effect?

    -I notice a lot of ramping, from regular motion to slower motion. I use a Canon Rebel. Is that slowed shooting in 60fps?

    If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it! Thanks!

    The effect at 01:31 appears, to me, to involve colour (or channel) separation and displacement.
    The original clip is separated into constituent parts. In this case, RGB. Or by simply creating a red, green, and blue version of the clip.
    The new parts are then displaced from each other by putting them slightly apart from each other.
    This is the effect I beleive I have described:

    I don't know Final Cut. There may be several ways to do it.
