I keep seeing this effect that I like recently - it seems to be some sort of dip to color dissolve that is used in alot of dream sequences or memory lapse images ie: someone thinking back.
I have seen it on films like "seven" or "the game" & more recently in "minority report". It seems to be like a dip to color dissolve that * blows out natrualy - as if it was sunlight turning up the intensity very quickly.It adds a very dreamy but slightly nihgtmare-ish edge * to a sequence.Its very hard to describe as you already know by my post here but, I have seen it on this guy's short film here: http://www.rafaelmacho.com/qt32.html
Its called "oil & water" some of you may have already seen it
He posted it here a while back & it has the same sort of feel of what I am talking about.
Any thought's or feedback on how to acheive this effect would be very cool 8)
I have tried the obvious "dip to color" in fcp but it doesn't seem to be as smooth & warm glowish as the one's i've seen in the above film's mentioned etc
Just had another look at the oil&water film & the effect is near the begining - it seems to be a pulsating brightness going ? but, it's similar... not the actual effect.

You can try using a keyframe with the levels filter in your preferred NLE. Having full control over your image, you can adjust the certain properties (ie the upper output levels of the red video channel, for example), and then have them adjust over time (as in the last second of a video clip).
