I need to recreate some effects for an upcoming video with after effects. The following link is the reference I have been given.





How can i achieve:
- the psychedelic delay effect as seen in 1:04.
- Glowing and changing colored tint on the trio as seen in 1:44
- Hypnotic flashes behind the two little person on both sides as seen in 2:35
- glowing pink outline as seen in 3:21

This is all a lot easier if you are shooting elements for chroma-key. If not, you will have to rotoscope them to get the edge-based effects.



[Nelson Ng] "the psychedelic delay effect as seen in 1:04."

Echo effect, plus Colorama.


[Nelson Ng] "- Glowing and changing colored tint on the trio as seen in 1:44"

High-contrast levels adjustment, plus Tint effect (with changing colors), plus Unmult.


[Nelson Ng] "- Hypnotic flashes behind the two little person on both sides as seen in 2:35"

A few layers, with Fill effect for coloring, plus Blur, plus an Levels adjustment for Alpha only.


[Nelson Ng] "- glowing pink outline as seen in 3:21"

Drop Shadow effect or layer style.

- the psychedelic delay effect as seen in 1:04.

You could play with a keying and the echo effect, but this was a DVE effect in the 70/80's, not really sure how to recreate.

- Glowing and changing colored tint on the trio as seen in 1:44

A glow effect would take care of the first part. Then in this instance some sort of luma key was applied and a the hue was adjusted.

- Hypnotic flashes behind the two little person on both sides as seen in 2:35

I'd probably just duplicate the layers, use a key, add a blur effect, then a fill effect.

glowing pink outline as seen in 3:21
Could be done with the above method, or perhaps just a luma key, with just a glow.
