Dear All,

I´d like to create an video mosaic fx. not that kind of like in tv / news to cover persons faces.

what i´m looking for is a kind of transition where one picture fades in block of hundreds of other pictures into a second one.... just with videos instead of pictures. If anyone needs an detailed desription, go to your macs screensavers, choose "abstract" and hit the "mosaic"-button underneath the preview button. then you´ll see exactly what i need, just with videos


any help?

Card Dance is the plugin you're after.
This tutorial can help:

but it seems that is not working right now- luckily I found the above link.

Thanks Dave! That's really funny! I just think your idea was great, now that I had to post this about 5 times.

Thanks to both of you, I did a search before and found the results but thought of a plugin or another possibility of achiving this effect.
Sorry for taking your time, and thanks again for your help!
