Video effects – post production essentials

The right use of video effects in your movies and videos

Most video editors include multiple video effects that can help give your movies a cool, individual look. You certainly don't have to be a visual effects pro to use these movie effects.

After you've imported your video material into your video editing software, viewed it and made a rough cut it's time to add various effects. It is important to differentiate between video effects, visual effects, transition effects and special effects.

What are video effects?

Video effects offer filmmakers creative space to create impressive movies without Hollywood budgets. Video effects are used whenever videos and film material is edited after the fact in order to get an effect that would be difficult or impossible to get when filming. These are termed as visual effects in professional circles, and include visible VFX and invisible VFX.

Visible visual effects are clearly apparent effects that wow the viewer. Invisible visual effects are the opposite. These video effects aren't recognized as an effect in the film, but blend into the optical landscape. Areas such as CGI and green screen replacement for compositing come under the invisible visual effects umbrella, just as video transition effects, dissolves and color filters.

Video transition effects

The most important step of video editor's work begins in the post production. After the arranging and cutting of individual clips, a drama arch is created with the help of video transition effects. Professional video editing programs such as VEGAS Pro offer finished templates for transition effects, such as various dissolve effects. There are practically no limits to the design options. Music isn't the only factor influencing the movie's atmosphere – cuts between scenes can also set a strong mood. Fast cuts disrupt continuity and let action-packed sequences appear even more dynamic. Additionally, cuts set to the beat of the soundtrack highlight the music without having to raise the volume.

Smooth transitions between movie scenes are best created with the help of dissolves. Today, with a few clicks, computers take over tasks that had to previously be performed by hand. Choose one of many available transitions. Lossless workflow lets you play around with various options. Let your creativity run free and create a personalized video in just a few clicks with the help of the right software. By using various video effects, transitions and titles, you can skillfully finish your production. Accent special moments with slow motion and create a perfect scene sequence with transitions.

Programs such as VEGAS Pro offer not just a wide spectrum of video effects, but also an option of adding your own free video effects into the program. Thanks to plentiful customization options, your creativity now knows no limits.
