Digital Distortion Effect
on Apr 25, 2011 at 11:45:42 am

Hi all,
I'm hoping to create a digital distortion effect on some of my clips in FCP. By digital distortion, I mean, what sometimes happens when watching digital video. It can take up the whole screen like this, but is usually overlaid over just some of the footage like in this.
Does anybody know of any existing plugins, or ways to replicate this effect?
I doubt I'm using the correct terminology, is there a specific term for this too?
Any help super appreciated,
Cheers,
Dan

I'm passingly familiar with this topic, I didn't know much about it before, but if it is the blocky type of artifacting that simulates a DVD going bad that you're talking about, yes, there is some guy out there who is using mad prograsmming skillz to deliberately corrupt the image data stream to create an artistic effect. I think I saw it used in a Puff Daddy Combs music video. This came up once in the COW Motion Graphics forum, which is where I first learned of it, and perhaps a search of the archives in that forum will turn up some clues on how it is done, or by whom.

I have a Fuji S3000 still camera that died and shoots all its frames just like that and can shoot up to 4 fps stills... wanna buy it? :)

Daniel,

Did you ever get an answer to this? I was wondering the same exact thing?

Thanks,

Isaac

I think you can fake it a bit, if you add a trails effect to the video, then apply a pixellating filter to just the trail. It won't be exactly the same, but maybe close enough.
