    Dizzy view effect for a dream sequence

    Hello

     

    I want to have a "dizzy" effect like when you're drunk or not realizing what you see and you see the image shaking in front of you, but not extremely. You end as an audience noticing what's happening but you realize that the person in the video is not in full consince or dreaming. I actually want to use it for a dream sequence but we ended up with shaky footage and I want to make it look as we meant to shoot it shacky so any other ideas are welcome.

     

    Thank you.

    What effects package to you have? Boris, Sapphire...?

    If you don't have any, then may just want to add a blur and then keyframe the intensity.

    You could also superimpose the image ontop of itself with a keyframed possition offset of between 0-10.

    Alternatively, you could timeshift the two layers by a frame or so,  Then, take the composite you've just created and add a radial blur using AvidFx so that the edges of the frame blur more than the centre.

    It may also be worthwhile fiddling with colorgrading too.  Depending on whether this fantasy sequence is supposed to be frightening or not, either desaturate the image somewhat and add a faint blue cast, or push the saturation and warm the color up.

    There's a million ways you can achieve what you want.  Explore.  Have fun.
