I downloaded the magic bullet demo.
i applied the white diffusion look to a clip of mine and wanted to know how would i recreate this look in AE without the bullet? anyone that could point me to a tutorial or tell me on here would get many thanks you's from me. ;D

Give this a shot:

1. Duplicate your footage into a layer directly above it.
2. Apply a fast or gaussain blue to that new layer (the amount will determine the look, so experiment)
3. Set the transfer mode of that layer to "screen"
4. Play with it's opacity to set the look you're after...

This will give you that soft/fluffy look...

WOW kai! that did it perfect!
thanks so much!
i've been experimenting trying to recreate the presets in magic bullet but im not the familiar with AE yet.do you know anymore tricks? i hadtrouble recreating "punchy", any tips?
thanks again ;D

also, to avoid making another post, when exporting my clips doi have to do anything with the pulldown? like put it back on? because i know i have toremove it to work with it in AE. thanks

it makes sense to re-insert pull down if you removed it, if your going back to 30i, but that also depends if your in 24p
