The shaky/vibrating slow motion effect
on Mar 25, 2010 at 1:03:40 pm

Hi,
I don't know the proper name for this, but am wanting to create this rather common shaky/vibrating slow motion effect often seen in movies and so forth.

Does anyone here know how to do this in After Effects?

thanks,

Scott

Not 100% sure I understand the effect you're talking about, but for random, jittery camera moves, you can parent the camera to a 3D null, then apply a wiggle expression to the position (and rotation, if you like) of the null. For more control, you can add a slider control to the null to adjust the amount of wiggle. There are tutorials for this sort of thing at videocopilot.net and elsewhere.

As for the slowmotion aspect, I guess you could play around with timewarp to speed up/slow down your footage.

It's only work if you'd rather be doing something else...

I'm with Mr. Blacker on this; I have no idea what effect you're talking about. Perhaps a link to an example video (with a comment about at what time in the video the effect takes place) would be beneficial.

I'll try to find some sample clip - something tells me though it is often seen in John Wu movies.

Perhaps a better descriptin is more of a slow mo "stuttering" effect.

Does that help?

I think you're talking about a slow shutter effect. It's achieved best by shooting with a slow shutter.
