FCP effect
 
Anyone know an effect for "ghosting" an image - for instance; a dancer moving at 80% speed while her movements have "trails".

Effects>Video Filters>Time>Trails (and maybe the other two)
You can also do this by duplicating the layer (possibly multiple times) then offsetting it a few frames and changing the opacity as desired (as well as perhaps adding blur).

Charles H. Jones September 20th, 2007 08:55 PM

don't have that one...
 
is it possible that you have some third party plug ins installed? Because I don't have "time" under video filters.

Look again...I found it near the bottom of the hierarchal list of effects.

I'm absolutely sure I don't have it. Now I feel cheated!!

What version of FCP do you have? I'm using 5.1. Maybe it moved. (Or, if v. 4 or before, might not have it.)
If you still can't find it, maybe you should use the method I described before with layering.

I have FCP 5.1.4 - I was able to get close enough with motion blur. Thanks Daniel - on both problems.

See this attachment. I can't believe you don't have it if you have 5.1.4. I do too, and I haven't installed any external plugins.

I would like to have that "trails" filter too - but I don't - see below:

I have FCP v5.1.4. What's going on here, anyone?

( I also notice I haven't got some others shown above too: like the "Tiling" group? )

Daniel Ross September 21st, 2007 10:44 AM

That's weird. The only external plugin in my list is a demo from RE:Vision.

You have a lot of plugins there, so maybe it got readjusted as you installed them?

I didn't do anything special with this. Just installed right from the CD.

I have FCS 1. Do you guys have the standalone? (Do they even make a standalone of FCP now or just FCE?)

Martin Mayer September 21st, 2007 10:55 AM

Just searched the PDF manual for "trails" and then "tiling" - found nothing either time. :(

This is standalone FCP v5.1.4. Maybe these were introduced with the FCS bundle?

Hmmm. Just found this article which implies "Trails" came in with v.5.1.2. I must investigate further...

I wonder if it's related to the fact that I am running an older machine (G4 Dual 1.42GHz), which won't, for example, run Motion?

Strange!!!

I have trails, and Tiling which consists of two filters.

This is so STRANGE!!!

Make sure you have "All" filters available; see attached.

Joseph Hutson September 21st, 2007 12:03 PM

How do you post thumbnails, instead of attatchments on DVI?
