    Re: the Flash high speed effect

    Hi,

     While Pinnacle Studio 23 is my editor of choice, I do use two free programs for additional visual effects. One is from Boris FX called Particle Illusion (standalone) and the other is Hitfilm Express. For the lightning FX in Particle Illusion, you choose the effect and then render it as a ProRes file with alpha and then place it over your video track on the Pinnacle Studio timeline. You can even use the motion tracking within Pinnacle to make sure that it stays on an object or your grandkids. If you export your video from Pinnacle Studio as a Cineform file you can also import it into Hitfilm Express, add multiple effects, render and then re-import the file back into Pinnacle. In the Pinnacle Control Panel under "Export and Preview", make sure the option for "Third-party Codecs" is checked. There are free tutorials for both of these programs and they are very easy (and fun) to use once you start.
