When did this happen?

60 fps is an effect to me XD.

Seriously though, what the heck are you guys defining effects as?

The best kinds of effects are when you spin the camera around and around. And there's only one video that does that...

I know you'll all make the right choice.

One video where I didn't score below 5 on the effect scale. Which is very rare.
