    Hey there,

    I wanted to know, whether an ATI Radeon Card is suitable for working with After Effects.
    I heard it might cause some problems with Open GL Rendering, but I’m not sure what that
    was all about.
    It would be great if someone could share his or her experience with me…

    Thanks a lot 🙂

    Mmm, I use a x800xt and it works a treat . . I have had no problems with OPENgl at all. At work we use nvidia cards and they don’t feel as reponsive .. but that’s my 2cents.

    Please someone to help me out with this effect,finished editing my short drama, and need an effect to describe a scarry haunting scene, sort of like out of(modern) horor movies or marlyn manson music video, you know when the film is going about twice the speed and there is a duplicate running at the same time, but late about one or two frames,and sort of flashes at the rate of once in 3 seconds, and it’s displaced at the same time about 20% in height, the duplicate last’s only about 10-15 frames and during that time the color of it changes, sort of like cros-processed film.As a gesture of kindness, i will list your name at the credits as a special FX advisor. Thanks a lot from your friendly northern neighbour,

    It seems you have answered your own question.

    Just break what you requested down into steps. Copy the footage. Maybe use the top layer in Screen transfer mode. Move it late in time by 10 – 15 frames. Use scale or corner pin to tweak the height and width. Use the strobe effect on a third copy and set it to ADD mode. Add a blur to it. So when it flashes it will be glowing. Maybe tint it bluish or orangish to make the glow either fiery or cool. Etc..

    That’s just wonderful, too bad my premiere pro doesn’t have blending modes,
    because, i was thinking if there is no preset effect like this, then to copy the attributes from the footage that has been worked on and then paste it into new clip or duplicate. By the way, is there something in AE like that, you copy all the applied effects and then use it on the other footage?
    That would just be awesome, and thanks for speedy answer, this forum rocks,
    Just started posting , and by the way realized that i posted in someone elses posting, sorry, I’ve been a frequent visitor since 2003, but always hesitated to post.Will try to answer other folks questions in the future.

    Do you use both Premiere and After effects. You can load your Premiere file up in AE or you should just output the final movie or section you want to be effected into AE and then do what Chris suggested. That’s what it’s there for, Where I work I get given all the fx shots that the editors put togther so yeah, it’s just happens. I guess I’m saying, don’t try and do everything in Premiere it’s geat for editing and light effects but that’s about it .. Other then that pull everything in AE and use the mixmodes 😀

    Your explination of the effect was great, and like chris said you just need to be confident and apply that break down into actually doing it. You know what you want, and if you followed what you wrote it would do some great things .. if that makes sense .. heheh. Anyways, hope that’s helpfull, I’m a bit confused as to why you use both but arn’t just pulling the footage back and forward .. Do editing in PRemiere and Do post / visual fx and compo work in AE and you’ll have some great looking things.

    I just read the title for the thread. There isn’t really a plugin todo that, but you don’t really need one because you know what you want and if you do it in AE you’ll get a great ORIGINAL effect that no one is doing because we’ll you thought of it .. Good luck.

    Thanks Hans and Chris for your help, I know it’s hard to do everything on your own, but that’s the fact in indie moviemaking.I’ll do it that way and it should look great, after all, the drama is is shot in DV , and it will be a great concept for later, maybe to re- shoot on film.As Einstein said, The greatest emotion of all is mystical, it’s the true power of art and science.
    Cheers you all!
