How to achieve a "Smooth Crisp White Opaque Layer" on the top of Videos

I've been thinking lately how video editors adds a smooth crisp white layer over a video similar to the image below:



See image here: http://prnt.sc/d7cx2z

You can also notice them on this playlist:






It's also obvious on this video:






I don't know what exactly you call it and how it's done either on final cut pro, sony vegas or premier?

Or if there is any template on the net to achieve the same effect?

Any idea? Any help? I want to achieve the same effect on every video.

Boosting up the shadow levels a bit beyond 0 IRE would do the trick, maybe combine with a shape mask for a little variation.

You could overlay a white solid, set the blend mode to 'lighten', 'soft light' or similar and play with the opacity if you wanted to mess around with an alternative way of doing but I agree with Noah - it's all in the way grade with the examples you've shown.

Thanks for the reply Noah.

I am a newbie here esp in Final Cut Pro.

Is there a way you could teach me (like a video tutorial showing it) or if you know a video tutorial on creating the same effect?

I would appreciate if it's possible though.

I just really need to learn how to do it and mess with it.

Thanks in advance!
Sam

I would really appreciate even if it's just a quick video showing it how it's done. PLease.
