Flash effects and more question?

Postby ChaosGod » Mon Oct 15, 2012 5:19 pm

Hi all I'm hoping anyone can help I use Sony Vegas Pro 12 ( i do have After Effects CS6 but don't use as often) I see sometimes people use flashing like a strobe to go with the beat of a song or to transition the amv from one cut to the next or anime to anime .. how can I do this?

Also how are people cutting Frame by Frame a char out of one video with transparency around the char (cut out) and overlapping it to animate across the current playing video. (ie are they using screen capture for each frame and step by step cutting the char out and over laying it back in frame by frame)

Thanks for any help with these questions.

I use a white or black image for strobing. I just place it where I need it to flash.

And yes, rotoscoping is often accomplished in AMVs by going frame by fram and cutting characters out of the original video and recombining the new transparencies on the timeline. Most editors who have used the Hare Hare dance, as an example, have done this. I've done it myself in quite a few videos, even videos where I hope it was not obvious because the video was a drama or romance video, and I actually preferred people think it was in the original scene.

Whyy?

and your second question, masking can be done through both keyframe movements but i feel that doing every frame is much effective
