Slow Motion Muzzle Flash Tutorial

by BrandonJLa • 726,105 views

Brandon walks you through how to make muzzle flashes in slow motion. Check if your camera has a 60p mode (usually it'll shoot 60p at the 1280x720 resolution)

how did you do the heat distortion?

A few things. 1. I'm glad to see you guys use Avid. 2. Not happy to see you using a mac. 3. Pre-rendering the slow-motion will take 15-30 on a decent pc.

Wow thanks for the 2 free explosion stock footage!!!

Hey umm how do you get after effects on a mac

There's a free 30 day trial though

+druggelino not worth it. The projects you do take more than 30 days and you run out of time before youve finished your project

Hey if you would like some Slow Motion Stock Footage check out the stuff I made on my channel. it might really speed up your editing process. The video includes: Side angle, Front, Left angled, and First Person! hope you like it :)

just a tip since i use airsoft gas blowbacks for my vids too, instead of holding the slide release, pull the follower in the magazine down and load it with gas. The slide will cycle without slide release manipulation
Report spam or abuse
hey you should make more tutorials how to build the effects or the 3D stuff that would be very very helpful .

The tip of the gun is orange. Smooth guys.

Not really, i guess you could get something decent out of add ons like Twixtor for AE, but i'm guessing it doesn't shoot at 60 fps so you wont be getting the same feel but its perfectly fine if you edit it correctly.

whats wrong man? i used the link i gave to figure it out myself, he couldn't find the one by them, so i thought it might be helpful.

How come you didn't discuss the shockwave?
Report spam or abuse
what camera do you usually use ? is a go pro 3black edition is good for slow motion ?

What I'd do is mask the part you want distorted and then add a blur, distortion or bulge effect to that, then figuring out how long you want the distortion to last and key-framing accordingly.

look at her left eye when she shoots the gun
Report spam or abuse
It can't really shoot super slow-mo, but it will provide you with some basic slow motion and i guess it'll do.
Report spam or abuse
you won't know until you go try it yourself now will you?

@makingsomefilms theres a warp effect that goes over her face in the final effect. It looks kind of like a heat wave

@Brandon everything looks great, however, I personally would have made a 4th duplicate of the muzzle flash, and added a displacement map :)

If you're willing to sacrifice some quality for frames, than yes. They could have been using any DSLR here, though.

There is not that much blow back on the shooter when firing a gun...and can't you just use the youtube gun channels that have slow motion footage(like me) to get your muzzle flash? jw.

You were defiantly paying attention in the classroom... ._.

Hey which Video programm there are use?
Report spam or abuse
Apply a bulge over the muzzle, make it grow large during the flash then back to zero by the time its finished.Thats what I did and it turned out fine :D

If your so ignorant that you think the operating system matters in a visual effects artist skill you really shouldn't be working with computers
Report spam or abuse
Can't you just right click, select time/duration increase it to about 150-245% and you have a very slow motion muzzle flash scene? Then just add the flash and do the exact same thing although you will have to shorten it to line it up. that is what I do and it works rather nicely :)

Great stuff Brandon... I am just getting into fx and watching your work has been an inspiration! One question.. on your Kickstarter page it was mentioned that you highly recommend HitFilm... but also see you use Adobe products as well.. have you settled on one at this time or do you use both? For a beginner in the field, would HitFilm be a good choice? Thanks very much!
