Hey guys!

Does anybody know how to do the effect where the camera shakes when say an explosion happens?

Digitally by using the animation feature or re-shooting and shaking it at the time where you want the impact.

Bear in mind your going to have a load of 'fun' when you come to adding and keyframing the explosion as well as blurring it.

I would probably do this by making the video layer larger than the canvas and then animating the video layer to shake around in EffectsLab.

That would probably be the easiest way (for me anyway).
