Lower third FjwrlLowerThirdF.fxTextMarch 17 2018December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This lower third is a spin off (pun intended) of "Lower third E". This does a twist of a text overlay over a standard ribbon with adjustable opacity. The direction of the twist can be set to wipe on or wipe off. "Wipe on" gives a left to right transition, and "Wipe off" gives a right to left transition. As a result when setting the transition range in "Wipe off" it's necessary to set the transition to zero. The MP4 below shows one example of it in action.

Lower third GjwrlLowerThirdG.fxTextMarch 19 2018December 26 2018

This uses a clock wipe to wipe on a box around text. The box can be wiped on in a clockwise direction or anticlockwise and can be started from the top or the bottom of the box. Once the box is almost complete a fill colour dissolves in, along with the text. The screen grab above shows the finished result, and the MP4 below shows an example of it in action.

This effect emulates the dot pattern of a colour half-tone print image. The colours used for the background and dots are user adjustable, but default to white and CMYK respectively.

This effect is one version of the dot pattern used in a black and white half-tone print image.

Halftone is a throwback to the era of black and white print media. It simulates the dot pattern used in a black and white half-tone print image. The colours used for background and dots are user adjustable.

Manga patternwindsturm/jwrlMangaPattern.fxStylizeMay 23 2012December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

Manga pattern is described by its original author as "a dither pattern". It's another dot pattern effect, this time using small crosses instead of dots. It simulates the star pattern and hard contours used to create tonal values in a Manga half-tone image.

Anamorphic toolsjwrlAnamorphicTools.fxDVEJune 4 2018December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This effect is a comprehensive toolbox to support anamorphic video. With twelve preset ratios and a user setting, it automatically pillarboxes or letterboxes, depending on the aspect ratio selected. This is accurate regardless of the project aspect ratio used. It also has the ability to pan and scan, zoom, position and crop.

A separate manually adjustable letterbox similar to the Lightworks effect is provided. This allows either using a custom setting or selecting any of twelve industry standard film formats. Like the same settings in the anamorphic section, the settings are accurate regardless of the aspect ratio of the Lightworks project.

Both the anamorphic and letterbox sections can be bypassed if the user requires just one or the other.

Chromatic aberration fixerkhaverChromaticAbFixer.fxStylizeMay 18 2011December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This effect is pretty self explanatory. When you need it, you need it. It zooms in and out of the red, green and blue channels independently to help remove the colour fringing (chromatic aberration) in areas near the edges of the frame often produced by cheaper lenses. To help see the fringing better while adjusting click the saturation check box.

This is hard to display as an image, so we've chosen to show the range of parameters available instead. The clone mask shape can be either elliptical or rectangular.

This actually doesn't add distortion, it helps to remove the distortion often seen with wide angle lenses.

Flip flopjwrlFlipFlop.fxDVEMarch 14 2018December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This emulates a similar effect in other NLEs. It is effectively a combination of the existing Editshare "Flip" and "Flop" routines. Because it does everything in one operation it's better than twice as efficient as using "Flip" and "Flop" sequentially to achieve the same result.

Format fixerjwrlFormatFixer.fxDVEMay 9 2017December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This is designed to be a very straightforward portrait to landscape rotator/180 degree rotator. It does that very effectively over a mixture of backgrounds. With all background mix settings set to zero a transparent black surround is produced, and the resulting image may be blended with other effects.

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

The foreground image can be rotated through plus or minus 90 degrees, or given a full 180 degree rotation to invert the image. It can also be flipped right to left. As it is rotated it's also corrected for size so that no part of the image is lost. The image can be independently scaled from one quarter size to four times it's actual size. The width can be trimmed from half size to twice size to allow fine tuning of the aspect ratio.

A single symmetrical crop tool is provided to crop the left-right and top-bottom edges of the foreground. This is also provided with a coloured border and feathering. The crop width tracks the rotation and scaling of the foreground automatically. It also affects the foreground image scaling used in the background generation.

In the background mix section the three mix faders have a bottom up priority. That is, the colour fader has highest priority and overrides all others. The foreground fader has higher priority than the background fader and overrides it. The background fader simply fades from black to 100% level. The blur adjustment applies to the entire background mix.

The version of the foreground used in the background can be flipped, flopped. flip/flopped and stretched horizontally and/or vertically. It can also be positioned both horizontally and vertically. If the adjustment runs off the edge of the frame it will be stretched to ensure that the edges never become visible.

Pixel fixerkhaverPixelFixer.fxStylizeFebruary 14 2013December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

Pixel Fixer is designed to repair dead pixels. Here is khaver's comprehensive explanation.

Add the first clip to a timeline and add the Pixel Fixer effect to the clip. It will show a magnified area of the frame with a green pixel in the middle. That's the target. It defaults to a single pixel but you can select a pixel pattern of up to 4 pixels in a group. Select the different patterns and the green pixels change.

Using the on-screen cross-hairs, move the magnified area to where the dead pixels are and then use the X Adjust and Y Adjust to fine tune the target over the dead pixel(s). Check the "Fix" box to hide the dead pixel(s), then un-check "Magnify".

If you need to fix more pixels just add another Pixel Fixer effect on top of the last one.

Once you have fixed all the pixels, save the effect as a template using a unique name. You will now be able to simply add this saved effect to other clips shot with the same camera and they will be automatically fixed.

Warped stretchkhaverWarpedStretch.fxDVEDecember 4 2013December 26 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This applies distortion to a region of the frame, and is intended for use as a means of helping handle mixed aspect ratio media. It was designed to do the 4:3 to 16:9 warped stretch we all hate having to do. You can set the range of the inner area that is not warped and set the outer limits at the edges of the crop. It defaults to a 4:3 image in a 16:9 frame as described above, but since a "Strength" slider is provided it can be used for other purposes as well.

Double visionjwrlDoubleVision.fxStylizeSeptember 9 2018December 27 2018

This image is hidden for guests. Please log in or register to see it.

This effect gives a blurry double vision effect suitable for a point of view shot when removing glasses or creating drunken or head punch effects. The blur adjustment is scaled by the displacement amount, so that when the displacement reaches zero the blur does also. The displacement is produced by scaling the video slightly in the X direction, ensuring that no edge artefacts are visible.
