CRT TV text flicker effect
on Aug 13, 2013 at 11:52:49 am

Hey,

I have been looking around and cannot seem to find the 'flicker' effect I am looking for. If anyone can help I would be most grateful :)

I am looking for some text to 'flicker on' - the same kind of flickery effect as if you just turned on an old CRT television. So when it appears it judders and flickers from top to bottom in one pass for a second or so.

Any ideas?

Thanks

There are presets/plugins you can get that will create those looks. Also I've done a few myself that I've uploaded.

If you type "BadTv" into the effects and presets, there are a few that you might be able to make work.

Take a look at making a hologram from Aharon Rabinowitz, some good techniques you might be able to adapt:

Here are some uploads that you might be able to modify to create that look:

Here are some plugins you can buy that can also create CRT distortion:





CRT Distress and Split.

Thanks for that! The BadTV effect is what I need and fits the job well. I never knew it existed!

Cheers
