I just want to add the burnt corner effect (vignetting) to a video in effectsLab. Which preset should I use/ how should I go about doing it. Thanks for your help.

Here's how to go about making this effect.

NOTE: These pictures are only examples from http://fxhome.com

Step 1: Add a GRADE OBJECT to the timeline. (MOST IMPORTANT) You CANNOT add GRADE to the orginal footage, you must drag it from the menu bar.

Step 2: Go to the options, and add a MASK -- FREEHAND.

Step 3: Draw on the desired corner where you want your burnt edge to go. Close the
SORT OF LIKE THIS PICTURE ABOVE BUT JUST ON THE CORNER, NOT THE WHOLE SIDE!


Anways... Then, go to the mask and click invert.



Turn the brightness down all the way.



There you go. Maybe adding some

You SHOULD get this effect.

In that preset, I used a vignette effect created with a neon light. If I recall, I inverted the shape, then set the color to black or a dark grey, and changed the composite mode to Multiply. I haven't used it in ages though, so I'm not sure if that's exactly what I did or not. Have a look at it and you should be able to figure it out. That particular preset also has some flicker involved, which I think is just the randomizers on the neon light glow cranked up.
