Specifically I'm talking about the sequence at 0:31. Is it simply a quick sequence of jump cuts or sth else? Pointers to other effects in the MV are much appreciated as well.

I/O- "Wasted My Time" from BRTHR on Vimeo.



on a related front, any suggested resources for an AE newbie? I'm not looking at full tutorial, only simple pointers where I can research further.

Thanks a bunch!

It was just a bunch of cuts(some jumps) with a frame of black between them.

If you want to download the video, copy the video url and head over to keepvid.com. Once you download it, you can bring it into AE and watch it frame by frame. Makes figuring things out a heck of a lot easier.

Getting started with After Effects (CS4, CS5, CS5.5, & CS6)...the link to Andrew Kramer(Video CoPilot) is a pretty good getting started series.

That's just a bunch of quick cuts: about 2 frames each. No big deal.

The Creative COW has a WEALTH of information on learning AE: Look for the Andrew Devis series on AE Basics. They're great. Ten years ago, you would have paid $500 for the same information that Andrew provides for free. I can't tell you how valuable his stuff is to a newcomer.

I was actually studying this video and some of other BRTHR's work- i dropped them and asked them what they usually do (this is an exact quote):

"glitch stuff is done with plugins, stock footage, after effects.it depends on the situatiom. there's a cool plugin called damage we use as well. VHS look is about degraing quality. so zoom up, blur, do what ever you can"

lots of work is done in colorama, and lots of the flickery stuff is easily done in editing,

Hope this helps

....and the important phrase in that that quote is, "IT DEPENDS ON THE SITUATION".

With a disclaimer like that, it's tough to get a bead on the precise techniques used.

Haha yeah probably, i think just going through it slowly is probably the best way to do it.
