Skew: Crazy Hazey
A magical effect is created here by distorting the footage, glowing the highlights and blending this with the original footage. It’s like glow worms are crawling across the screen. A great preset to use on bright, saturated footage like neon signs, funfairs or cities at night.
Overexpose: Poster Child
A beautifully pink, posterised look is achieved with this preset. The lightest areas are over-exposed and pushed towards pink. Any colour can be chosen to override the default pink in the Bloom Controls. Use the Pre Color Correct controls to increase the gamma in order to push more pixels towards pink.
Overexpose: Grey Area
An interesting effect is achieved here by flickering towards a negative saturation value. This has the effect of desaturating the footage, particularly the green and blue channels. the effect animates rapidly and chaotically between unaffected and desaturated bloom effect. Can be nice added to footage containing flash photography.
Overexpose: Bloomin Lovely
A highly saturated effect flickers and flashes across your footage. Great for adding to footage of live concerts or fireworks to add a bit of excitement and colour. Can also be used to add drama to footage of explosions or gunfire by brightening up flashes and adding extra luminance and saturation animation.
Interference: Lilac Strip
An interference effect is concentrated into a distinctive lilac-colored strip. this can be used as a graphical treatment to highlight a section of the footage for titles or lower third graphics. A slight amount of noise is added to a feint video-fields effect to create a stylised video look.
Destabilize: Quake Shake
This drastic and fast-moving effect automatically animates the zoom, rotation, horizontal and vertical position properties. This is combined with the original footage to create an unsettling effect. This preset is perfect for making it seem as though the camera is vibrating as it would be during an earthquake or explosion.
Destabilize: Erratic Elastic
Looking to add a bit of bounce to your footage? The zoom value automatically animates here at regular intervals, creating the effect of bouncy elastic. The effect is blended 50% with the original footage and can be faded over time. Draw attention to elements by applying this effect and then animating it to reduce the Zoom factor and frequency over time.
Artifact: Pixel Shifter
A subtle pixellation effect - great for adding to background footage to provide texture and style. It’s also useful for obscuring the footage for placement of overlying graphics. Video is down samples, colors are reduced and random artefacts shift the pixels to create a smudged delay effect.
Artifact: Toy Bricks
Footage is darkened dramatically and artifacts are coloured brightly in this abstract style. The primary colors of the dancing blocks are reminiscent of the toy, plastic building bricks we used to play with in the 1970’s. A fun preset that shouldn’t be taken too seriously and can be animated to create an interesting custom transition.
Artifact: Pixel Smudge
A stylish effect is created by adding blocky artifacts that smudge the underlying video. A great preset to add a sense of stylishness to technical footage. The horizontal blocks accentuate left to right movement and are great for partially obscuring the footage. Perfect for background footage and for news items.
Artifact: Eighties Video Game
A low-fi look is created with this eighties-influenced preset. A limited color palette and high down-res factor create the effect of the blocky video seen in early computer games. Artifacts freeze, stutter and shift making the whole effect more frustrating - just the feeling people experienced when watching video on old technology.
Agedfilm: Desert Storm
This is the perfect preset to use when you want to create tension and pace. Designed with conflict and war in mind, it adds drama and excitement. Golden, flickering flashes sprinkle over the footage bringing it to life. Scratches, flicker and a subtle amount of noise add a feeling of damage.
Agedfilm: LowDown Dirty
Make your footage look as if it was filmed in smog-ridded Victorian London with this tea-staining preset. Modelled on old photographs from the Victorian era - added scratches and dust instantly evoke the feeling that the scene is taken from an old newsreel or silent movie.
