    Possibly I watched it at the wrong res or something but the 'effect' in the Gothika trailer must have gone staight over my head. What did I miss? What effect are we talking about here. Looked like someone walking very slowly towards a wall to me

    marc, please delete this thread..someone signed up the email address under the first site as spam and now the guy is getting return emails left and right about being a spammer and trying to send viruses THIS is ridiculous, whoever did it is an immature little basement dwelling retard. im sorry to get pissed but this is just stupid, thank you sir. and great site by the way.

    I deleted the URL in the thread. With regards to the virus return emails - that happens about 100 times a day to me. Normally happens when people don't have AV software running and viruses harvest email addys on the users machine - then using them as spoof sender addresses.

    Deleting about 100 emails seems to be the norm for me at the mo.

    this effect is achieved by frame cutting, experiment by removing 3-8 frames every so often from your footage to get the skip effect. Try combining it with speeding up/slowing down your clip.

    damn thank you SO much, seriously appreciate it, would you happen to have a quick sample of something like that somewhere, you sound like you know your stuff..figured you might have your own stock piled away someplace in the e-world

    As Tonga says, you just have to experiment a bit - it is Non-linear editing, so you don't loose anything by cutting up your video. You'll soon get the feel for it, but it's more art than science.
