Kaleido Bbaopao/jwrlKaleidoB.fxStylizeNovember 17 2018December 27 2018

Kaleido B is a kaleidoscope effect that varies the number of sides, size, position and scale. This version is for use with Lightworks 14.5 and more recent versions. It was originally developed by baopao on the Linux platform as Kaleido (below) and converted for cross-platform compliance by nouanda. This version has been largely re-written from the original by jwrl.

This kaleidoscope effect also varies the number of sides, position and scale. It can give quite different results from the above two.

This effect changes colours according to their luminance values. The amount of change can be adjusted by hue and saturation, and the range over which it operates can also be adjusted. The above screen grab shows what can happen when the range has been adjusted so that black and white levels are passed through unchanged and the transition softness has been increased.

Sea scapekhaverSea_Scape.fxMatteMay 5 2018December 27 2018

The name of this effect describes exactly what it does: it creates seascapes. The height above the water, the speed through it, the ripple depth, you name it, can all be adjusted. It's very pretty effect, but it will only run on version 14.5 and over. It will not compile at all on versions of Lightworks earlier than that.

Here's an example of it being set up as recorded by lghtwrks, followed by an example of it in use.

Spotlight effectjwrlSpotlightFx.fxStylizeDecember 29 2017December 27 2018

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

This effect is designed to produce a highlighted spotlight effect on the source video. The spot can be scaled, have its aspect ratio adjusted, and rotated through plus or minus 90 degrees. The edge of the effect can also be feathered.

Foreground and background exposure can be adjusted, as can saturation and vibrance. The background can also be slightly blurred to give a soft focus effect, and the foreground and background can be individually tinted.

This was adapted by user khaver 1 Aug 2018 for use with Lightworks version 14.5 and higher from original code by Martijn Steinrucken aka BigWings on the Shadertoy website (www.shadertoy.com/view/lscczl).

Transporter 1jwrlTransporter1.fxKeyApril 2 2018December 27 2018

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

This is a customised version of Editshare's Chromakey effect with a transitional Star Trek-like transporter sparkle effect added. This isn't a copy of any of the Star Trek versions of that effect, nor is it intended to be. At most it could be regarded as an interpretation of the idea behind the effect. Play the MP4 below to see it in action.

Transporter 2jwrlTransporter2.fxMixJuly 9 2018December 27 2018

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

This is similar to Transporter I, above, but is based on a difference key instead of a chromakey. What this means is that you can use two locked off shots, one without your transitioned object and one with. You apply the effect in the same way as you would a dissolve or wipe and the effect will work out what to do to make the transitioned object appear. Since the result is so similar to the effect above, no MP4 has been put here.

Channel selector can choose the RGBA channel to be used from up to four separate video layers. Amongst other things it can be used as a simple matte generator for use in other blending effects, a means of producing black and white from colour, or just a means of producing a colour image from colour separations.

This effect is a simple device to select from up to four different outputs. It was designed for, and is extremely useful on complex effects builds to check the output of masking or cropping, the DVE, colour correction pass or whatever else you may need. Since it has very little overhead it may be safely left in situ when the effects setup process is complete.

Random flickerjwrlRandomFlicker.fxUserAugust 24 2018December 27 2018

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

This effect performs a pseudo random switch between two inputs. While it can compile and run under Lightworks version 14.0, it has much better stability of control when compiled and run under version 14.5. The routing shown above is an example of it being used to switch between a cropped and an uncropped foreground into a DVE effect.

Strobe lightkhaverStrobeLight.fxUserNovember 24 2014December 27 2018

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

Strobe is a two-input effect which switches rapidly between two video layers. The switch rate is dependent on the length of the clip. This is a characteristic of Lightworks effects subsystem and isn't a fault of this effect. There should be enough adjustment range of strobe spacing to allow any reasonable clip size to be used, but if you need more range break the clip into sections and repeat the effect.

Like khaver's Strobe light (see above), this is a two-input effect which switches rapidly between two video layers. Unlike that effect, in version 14.5 of LW and up the switch rate can be set accurately in frames. If you don't have a newer version of Lightworks it will still compile, but you will get the second interface shown above and it will work in the same way as khaver's effect.

This is a two pass anti-alias tool that samples at 6 degree and 7.5 degree intervals using different radii for each pass. This is done to give a very smooth result. The anti-aliased image so produced can be mixed with the unmodified input.

The August 2019 update handles the edges of the frame better and uses a non-linear application curve to give better control of antialias adjustment.

CC helperkhaverCChelper.fxUserFebruary 14 2013December 27 2018

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

CC Helper (Colour Correction Helper) is designed to provide up to six user selected reference colour patches. Individual colour patches can be turned off if you need fewer than six and you can change the colour patches to gradients if you wish. The colour value range of the patches can be switched to 100% meaning that the selected colour will be scaled so that the highest of the RGB channels will become 100%. You can also slide the bars up and down over the video to clear areas that you need to see, and optional RGB level meters can be laid over individual colour patches.

Add the effect to a clip, select the pixels you want to check and select "Display Bars". When using the colour picker, you can click and drag to select a rectangular region. The resultant colour will be the average of the selected pixels. Then add a Colour Correction effect to the chain and adjust using CC Helper to assist. Full instructions by khaver are here.
