Hi All,

I'm looking at this video and trying to figure out how the early overlay effects are done. Are these simply clips over layed at a low transparency with some lens flare, or is this a style I'm not aware of?

This might not even be AE, but I thought I would ask here first.

Thanks for the help,

Well they are going for a film burn or film damage effect, if you do a search here you will find a lot threads on how to create the look from scratch...or where to get stock footage and how to apply it. Mostly it's a quick dissolve with whatever transfer mode looks best to you.

Here's a site with Free Film Burn footage
