Out of phase effect?

It was used in saving private ryan and mark of cain. It makes all the highlighted areas look smeared. Is it possible to create this effect with a digital camcorder, i know how its done on a film camera i just wonder if you can do the same thing with digital or would it have to be done in post?

Hmmm, I'm not sure how I'd do it in camera with video. Film, yes.. video, no.

However it'd be much easier and controllable in post. Magic Bullet in particular has a couple of smears that look pretty much exactly like that. There's probably a couple of other ways as well.

Back in the imaging-tube camera video days, you spent big money for very educated tech guys with a double-E degree and a green screwdriver, who's main job was to PREVENT this effect from happening:-)

You had all manner of controls on tube camera to make things bloom in various ways.

Modern cams have some engineering sub-menus with settings you could deliberately throw out of whack and save as a template on a memory card as a "look", I suppose, but really this is way easier and more controllable to do in post, by playing with the color channels separately, I should think. If you can shoot for example in Red camera RAW format, your post choices for this kind of thing are unlimited.
