"REWIND" effect for After Effects or FCP.

I am looking for some sort of plugin that will recreate the VHS rewind effect for After Effects or Final Cut Pro.

Anyone heard of something like that?

Couldn't you just record to VHS, and then record that back into FCP?

Most (but not all) DV cameras can act as a convertor, so you can print to VHS tape, and then use capture now to capture from the VHS tape (disable device control).

That would give VHS quality though, with the analog funkiness and all (is it what you want?).

2- A different approach would be to use the time remapping / velocity envelopes. (Can't remember what they were called.) It's in FCP.

I like the VHS idea, especially on the old 2-head players!

I thought there must be a plugin effect that would do the VHS rewind effect without having to actually do it with a VHS.

I didnt try it yet, but I think the VHS will give a strange look, for the image quality of the rewind will be notoriouslly reduced compared to the rest of my footage shot in Beta.

how about taking black (or some color) video, capture yourself rewinding the video on VHS to FCP, then just overlay (key) the rewind effect on your video?

capturing it would be difficult. i know my analog capture setup captures different than you expect when the vsync goes crazy as it normally does when rewinding VHS.

I know Tinderbox 3 has some 'tv effects' but I don't think an actual 'rewind' plugin. But is has a function called 'bad tv' which looks a bit like a rewind function I think. If you combine that plugin in combination with reversing the footage, I might look like that, even though I have never tried it.

On that page you can see a still of that effect beeing used.

I don't know the exact definition of this "rewind" effect is, does it require distorting the footage? If not, I would just reverse the footage and apply a speed change to it.

What exactly are you looking for, you have me interested now?

I am looking for the typical horizontal lines that appear at the top and bottom of the video when you rewind or fast forward and old VHS tape... I really dont know any other way to define it, but when you rewind a VHS tape, you do not get a smooth reverse movement,, but the image suffers some displacement, as well as some "noise".
