Well... Beams awayyyyyyyy....


Here is some very simple and noobish editor stuff used test video with "star trek" beaming... :)
I had to try make this at first to create as less "paid" stuff over HitFilm editor...

Next i move forwards for Pro version and try make it there even bit cooler looking... :)


Anyways, you may have fun when your bored... :)


  • @Shooter99 You've got a good start there!  My only comment is that the "particles" of disintegration appear blobby (for lack of a better term).  However there is no definitive beaming effect.   This compilation shows how each incarnation of ST has changed the effect anyway: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jt8U0ZL7fHQ

    Interesting to note, that the original beaming effect from the TV show was merely the combination of footage from glitter swirling around in a bottle and a series of mattes.

    We think this simple today, but doing this with several passes on film was time consuming and expensive.  Beaming was often cut from the budget of an episode just to keep costs down. 

  • Thanks for sharing that @Stargazer54 .

    Well there  was no particels used yet.

    Only lens flares cause i was trying to do sort of Express version.
    Now i am trying to start creating Pro version with particles... :=)
    Thank's for video example.

    Hitfilm user Stephen Oliver fid this fun little video where he quickly shows off many variations of teleporting in Hitfilm. Not a tutorial, but a lot of fun. 


  • You notice, he never strays too far away from the painting of himself.  Could be the source of his power?

    @Stargazer54 *insert Dorian Grey joke*

    He also did a tutorial, specifically on the Blake's 7 (Liberator, not Scorpio) teleport.

  • @Stargazer54 I suspect the painting is like Trelane's mirror in The Squire of Gothos

  • Yep.  That's what I thought of.  But Triem may be onto something.  It's kind of like Dorian Grey . . .  but in reverse.

  • Love it. Thanks, again.
