    Evan, could you do a tutorial on how to do the chroma distortion in this
    video: /watch?v=f_aw3kZo3tg I tried searching up some tutorials but could
    only find stuff on chroma aberration, which doesn’t give the same result

    I’m posting this question as I watch the video. I don’t know if you answer
    it later on. But is there any particular reason that you chose to use
    random()*100 instead of random(0,100). This gives a random number on each
    frame, how would I change the expression to give a random number every
    other or change every 5 frames?

    sounds like golden age syndrome. But I do enjoy many aspects of the
    cultural shift to embrace the novelty of the historical.

    Used these sorts of effects on one of my showreels for my exhibition 🙂
    Showcased it on a retro TV aswell so it looked really good. If anyone
    interested in after effects animation like kinetic typography amongst other
    things, check out my channel it’s pretty much what I’m all about 🙂 thanks.

    well thank you kindly sir. Your patronage is much appreciated. And enjoy
    wedding season! I’m told it’s one of the most lucrative for small video
    production businesses.

    I think I just set the text to be Add or some other blending mode. Not much
    to it I’m afraid.

    How did you tweak the audio to sound like it was really old like that. It
    reminds me of those old school informational videos featuring Timmy! It was
    always Timmy!

  17. Sam Tochelli says:

    He shows it off at about 0:35 The video is an effects breakdown so you
    should see it pop up with text underneath for each effect

    This this perfect, in fact all are perfect, you are still doing a great
    good for humanity!

  21. ECAbrams says:

    I prefer the way only because I can type it faster and it does the same
    thing. As for your question about the frames just use posterize time as an
    expression or effect. Enjoy.

  22. Smekzy Edits says:

    I gotta say, the vignette made the tutorial 😉
