FCP effects tips

G'day from down under.

This may sound like a silly questions, but I've never been properly trained on how to edit videos and I have some burning questions I need to ask regarding creating certain effects in FCP. I was gonna post this in the Final Cut Suite thread, but thought this effect will be more familiar to the wedding industry folks :)

There are two in particular which has been used in many videos:

1. The light flaring/flickering effect..... ok, I'm not even sure how to describe it. But it's the effect where you kinda see some shades of colourful lights flickering past the clip. Imagine a colourful Casper running over your camera lens... Seems like another layer of light clip is put on top of the original clip and with reduced opacity. The question is.. is that a stock clip that you can buy or is it something that can be created?

2. Light intensity changes.. its when the clip goes bright before going to next clip. But its not dip to colour bright, its when the whites only component in the clip goes really bright as if it's over exposed.. I know how to do this in Vegas, but not sure in FCP, any hint?

I'm not sure if anyone gets what I meant. This is as best as I can describe it.

Any hint would be appreciated! Thanks :)

What you are describing in the first question sounds to me like a natural occurence when processing 8 or 16mm film. The end of the roll usually has a bit of color flicker and I think that some of what we see in videos would be that, but of course there is an effect as mentioned to mimic it.

#1 sounds like a film burn to me. Try googling "film burns"

1 would be a film burn, a result of taking your eye away from the eyepiece of certain super8 cameras.

2 is just an additive dissolve. Check the video transitions in dissolves.
