Second I tried to slow an alam dv plug-in, and the effect worked, but, it' stranger.

But it is or it is not crop-tool used to extend the effect to other frames???
Oeyvind wrote:I think you'll need to use the crop-tool. (Not sure if that's what it's called, but it's next to the speed-tool you just used). Then you have to move the keyframes to match the length of the effect. Hope that works for you!
This is maybe just with alam dv plug-in, not with fx preset.
Cogz wrote:Yes, as Wizard and Oeyvind have said, you need to move the keyframes. I suspect that the effect moves between say keyframe 1 and keyframe 10, and the movement is tweened between them. If you select keyframe 10, and drag is out further, then the movement will happen over a larger amount of frames, hence it'll appear slower.
Taking the same start and finish positions, its quite clear that over 20 frames, the object will move slower than it would over only 10 frames.

Yes, the crop tool is used to extend the length of an effect, so that more can happen. That tool alone will not slow the effect down. However, with the guide/explanation given by Cogz, you can see that using the crop tool, combined with moving the key frames further apart, will alter the effect enough to give it the appearance of slower motion.

If you are speaking of my alternative method I suggested above, I would be happy to guide you through what I meant, and possibly illustrate a few key steps. Before I begin, I just want to say that this method was really only suggested for certain presets that have very complicated key frames or animation, and you would most likely be better off trying to extend the effect, and move the key frames to match the changes you made to the length, and you should probably give that a try for a small effect such as this.

Yap, just lock your camera, film the environment without the actors, and then have the camera at the exact same position and let the actors preform their part. Then take the shot with the actors and make it as transparent as you wish. Easy as that!

I must admit, I am having a small degree of difficulty understanding exactly what it is you are doing, and the precise problem you are encountering, but I will still give it my best attempt at helping you out here.

The blur angle filter is located under "Grade". Locate that by selecting "grade" found under the desired object heading in your timeline, and then scrolling through the list of grade filters to the right, known as your "filter browser".
