How to make this effect for video?

Hi

Wondered how to do this effect but for video in FCP 7 and/or with some plugin. Maybe also have it with faint ghost trails...how would you do it?

Yes I know - but there must be a plugin or a way to make a shot have this look.

Thanks

Have a look to Boris and Sapphire plugins, you may find something.

Closest I can think is getting creative in Motion:



Here's the project:

Wow, thanks for taking the time - can't believe you did this, thanks....so forgive my ignorance, but when I put a moving dancer clip in this project and add the effects similar to what you did for a still, how does one make the effects follow the movements? If too difficult to explain, I'll just play around with it...thanks Pat for the time you took in helping...

Thanks

I should explain what's going on...

First I grabbed a random still of a ballerina and placed it in my project. I created a little green bezier "brush stroke" shape and replicated it. I used the Shape: Image, but that requires an alpha channel, so I threw a Luma Key on the still. However, she wasn't bright enough to key all the non-black areas, so I added a Levels filter (and reordered the filters so the Levels was done first), then adjusted the levels to brighten her sufficiently.

I clicked back on the Replicator and changed the Arrangement to Random Fill, upped the Points to 2400 or so, clicked the Shuffle Order checkbox, set the Color Mode to Take Image Color, then played with the Angle and Angle Randomness, Scale and Scale Randomness until I got something I liked.

Then I clicked on the ballerina still and pressed k to generate a clone layer, and moved that into it's own group below the brush strokes. I added a Bump Map filter and dropped the "brush strokes" replicator to it's map well and played with the Angle and Amount to get a nice effect.

Finally, I added a Gradient Colorize filter to the Clone Layer group and used a green-to-black gradient and upped the Repeats to 4.

And typing this up took longer than actually making the composition.

As to what happens with moving footage, I am unsure. I don't know if the replicator follows the alpha channel dynamically, or if it takes it from frame 1. Try it and let us know what happens.

Have fun...

Patrick
