Hello,

I'm working on a video from a club and I need to recreate the flashing effect from the video below:






The effect can be found throughout the video, f.ex. 0:58, 1:02, 1:04....

Is there a simple way of recreating it in AE?

Thanks!

Gloria

This is one of those effects that you can create so many different ways. Method I think works pretty well is to place an adjustment layer over the video you want to effect and add a levels effect to it. Set a default start and end keyframe 4 frames apart, Now move between those keyframes and lower your "white input levels" and "gamma". Trim your adjustment layer's start and end points, so you can easily duplicate the effect.

I've uploaded an example project and in it I also played with a few different transfer modes---doing that will give you slightly different feels. If you have any more questions, ask.
