CSI / trailer effect

Hi,

I'm currently editing a short horror flick, but there are some shots that make smooth transition between scÚnes impossible, so I'm looking for solutions at the moment, since reshooting isn't an option.

Now my question is, in alot of trailers and in every episode of csi (I think) , there is the overlighting flash effect (or what is the correct name of this effect?), is there anyone who could tell me how to accomplish this on premiere of after effects? since this would be great to offer transition between the shots.
(and I know how to overlight, but in csi and in trailers there is this nice glow on it, and there is a difference in the intensity of the flash at the top and bottom)

Thanks in advance,
Dan

Something like this?
http://www.jushhome.com/nick/media/nbbfintro.mov

This was done using a "diffues glow" filter in Media Studio Pro. There may be a similar canned filter in Premiere or AE.

If you want to "roll your own"...
-copy your clip onto a new layer
-reducing saturation and adjust brightness/contrast so that the bright areas of the frame become white shapes left on a dark background
- Apply blur of your choosing to soften the shapes
- set this layer to "add" do the original clip, and animate the opacity, blur, and brightness so that it "grows" and washes out the clip below. (you can also animate the brightness of the underlying original clip to help the effect along)

You can experiment and enhance the effect further by adding additional "glow" layers with varied opacity, blur, and brightness.

Hope this helps.

There's also this plug in, and it's free.

Or you could simply use the levels adjustment built in to Premiere and adjust the input white control. 255 is normal, and 0 is completely white.
