Time Travel and Layered Sound
Knoptop returns with another Quick FX installment of the "FX without After Effects" series. Here he shows some more great things you can do inside your editor without having to use specialized software to make things flashy. While the dinosaurs are neat, the most impressive things in Dave's video are the simple tricks. Pay attention to the section on layered sound and how good the final result is. I also like the bit about manipulating one frame to enhance the teleporting visual. I'm a big believer in the KISS method, and Knoptop's video is a great example of the quality you can get without a lot of extra steps (even if he does "cheat" a bit and use Photoshop).
