If you have FCP 5.1, it comes with a package of FXPlug plugins called the MOTION INCENTIVES. You get this when you register your copy of Motion. With FCP 6, this comes standard. It is unavailable on previous versions.

Thanks Shane, I found the quality pretty good..;-) sorry I meant the one before the light rays effect.. the effect is still on the final cut project and then you go into the light rays.. I have been seeing this dazzle effect on peoples work, motion 2 does have it but its not as good.. maybe its in motion 3??

Mark....that is LIGHT RAYS...the transition that I mention at the beginning. It just plays back super quick, as it is a 20 frame dissolve...and of course the low quality playback of the tutorial doesn't help.

This is a question for the forums, not a comment on a tutorial.

I LOVE it when I'm validated! I was looking to do this very effect for a project last year, and I did it in exactly the way Shane Ross did it! He did it a lot faster than I did, and I learned a couple of short cuts, but the overall workflow was the same. Mine was used as part of an introductory sequence, a title area montage, and it looked awesome.

I don't like nesting...and avoid it whenever possible. But, feel free to do it that way. Seems like it would work.

How about nesting both sides of the transition and applying the effect once with 4 keyframes?

There was a glitch in the way Internet Explorer was handling the mov file but this has been resolved now.

BTW Great tutorial Shane!

Rob, what version of Quicktime do you have installed? The tutorial is encoded H.264, so you need at least QT 7.

I can see the two tutorials from Aharon on Weather Replacement as well as a few others, yet I cannot SEE this tut! I'm using Quicktime 7.3

Brilliant! I used this technique - sort of, that is. I just keyframed the lowest line in the Motion tab, the Mix, from 0 to 100 and then from 100 to 0 again. It would probably take me another couple of years to figure out that all the remaining parameters could be keyframed, too. Thank you Shane.
