Default Camera Flash Effect

I'm trying to do a camera flash bulb effect in Edius 6.

I need to create a paparatzi look outside a restauant as a car pulls up.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Jim

Very easy...

I use the video filter / Color Correction / Dark & Bright

Use keyframes, set a keyframe, move a frame on and add another keyframe. Set this one with the brightness increased until it bleaches out. I set mine to max.

Then move on another frame, add a keyframe, this time reverting back to the setting of the first keyframe.

If you want a slightly longer effect, just increase the distance between the keyframes.

Repeat as often as you want the flashes. This is quite quick by copying and pasting the original keyframes

If you search here, I have given instructions on how to do a very nice White Flash if you are looking for it. You can also save it as a User Preset. You might want to drop the opacity a bit.

Hey All,
Tried different ideas and settled on this one.
In this clip there are two sets of flashes.

1. As she steps out of the car you'll see a few flashes done the old fashion way with a white chip. I didn't like the full frame white flash. Did not look real.

2. The flashes a few seconds later on the car were done in Vitascene but not with photoflash. I used one of the glow filters and then I...well check it out...

ps; the webpage at the end was all done in the Edius 6 layouter. We use to do it in AfterEffects. Love the new 6.

Hey the quick way is create a PSD (Photoshop) file with a white background, and use that on the timeline and make is really short in lenght, its works fine...

Hmmm...

I reviewed the results produced by Jim and frankly I thought it was fantastic - very realistic

Great job, Jim

This may or may not be a factor to consider: Current photoflash are typically a strobe, and the duration of the flash is on the order of 1/1000 sec or less, or all in one field plus time for any CCD/CMOS sensor recovery artifacts.

If you are trying to emulate leagacy flash bulbs, the flash duration will be much longer with lower peak brightness, on the order of 1/30 sec. or so with a marked peak early in the flash and a gradual decline. The brightness/time curve will depend on the type of flashbulb used (F, M, S, etc.) and could easily have effects present in 3 fields. The FP (for use with focal plane shutter) bulbs had a longer, flatter curve than conventional bulbs.
