Avid and the Strobe Effect

Avid%20Strobe%20Effect.gif

A great motion effect that often goes forgotten is the Avid motion strobe effect. This is a great effect to use for high action shots or for shots that go with fast music. It is used a lot in music video production but I have started to use it more often in my own productions. It may seem like such a simple effect but when used properly it can a great interest in an otherwise boring shot. The great thing is you can apply the strobe motion to with a variable speed effect for a much more dramatic look. You've seen it, slow motion and strobes, they look great together. To apply this effect:

1. If you want to use only part of the source clip for the effect, mark IN and OUT points in the Source monitor.

2.In the Source monitor, click the Motion Effect button.

3.Select the Strobe Motion option.

4.Specify the update rate in frames for the Strobe Motion effect. For example, a rate of 5 causes every fifth frame to be held for five frames before updating in the Strobe Motion effect.

5. Complete the effect by doing one of the following:
Click Create to create the new clip and close the dialog box. Another dialog box asks you to select the bin for the effect.
Click Create and Render to render the clip - creating new media files and close the dialog box.

This Avid Effect will add much more excitment to your productions!
