How to use RGB Shift

RGB Shift transitions between two clips, separating the red, green, and blue elements within the images and moving them independently for an edgy, restless look.

First, determine the maximum motion displacement with the Horizontal and Vertical controls. Next, determine how the colors will be affected using the Color Shift control. Finally, set the motion behavior using the remaining controls.

  • Horizontal and Vertical sets the distance each color will be shifted either horizontally or vertically.
  • Crop increases the size of the image, reducing the border.
  • Velocity sets the speed of motion.
  • Color Shift rotates the three primary colors through the color spectrum so they can be Purple, Orange, and Teal, for example.
  • Tile Borders fills in the black borders with copies of the image, causing the image to wrap around to the other side of the screen as it moves.
  • Tempo sets the speed at which the effect changes the image. For a sudden change, set the Tempo high. For a gradual change, set it low.
  • Attack controls how fast the transition move from start to full effect.
  • Release controls how fast the transition moves from full effect to end.
  • Cross Fade sets the percentage of the transition that includes a cross fade of the from one clip to the next. Turn down Cross Fade for an abrupt switch between images. Turn it up for a gradual mix.
