Twitch Feature Requests


We’re not anywhere close to releasing any kind of update for Twitch but I wanted to create a place for you guys to request features for this plug-in. We have a few ideas but it would be great to see what you guys thought.

Thanks!

Yeah, this plugin for avid would be a game changer for a lot of people.
And you can sell them for a premium over AE, consider that.

Any chance of data glitch presets as an upgrade?
Tilman

I definitely need this in Avid since these are perfect transition effects. transitions are all about timing, you are permanently trimming your edits to match the timing. and for these operations I dont want to switch between Avid and AE all the time to design a TWITCH-transition. any chance?

I'm a bit late on this obviously but it would be sick if you could slide the red blue and green color channels without sliding the whole image.

Definitely, an easy way to link the twitches to the music. I'm probably the 125.5th guy to say this and sure you're aware of it. Just think of the possibiliteies.. wonderful timing to the rythm of the music for everyone without having to do it all manually.

Do you make all the presets, give it a name, put it on a CD and sell it in this site.
if yes how do you do the presets.
6 years ago
Would it be possible so you could link twitch to other effects? like say you made a wave effect and you want twitch just linked to that one wave effect.
Marlon Cantillano

I would like to see in twitch maybe some sort of handheld camera setting where you can apply twitch to the camera and make feel like you are running with it or walking maybe on different surfaces like walking on rocks, and uneven roads.

The effect of a film camera turning on and off, the effect that was way over used and abused in the early 90's, But Tony Scott seems to do it without seeming too retro. An effect that can be recreated with levels and crushing your whites, and using time remap to ramp up the speed, then ramp down coming back in. But to really sell the effect, you would require losing some frames in time moving forward, at the same time blooming to white.

so: Camera start and stop effect. Crushing whites, and time remap forward, and losing frames in between, all adjustable.

would be a time saver

Thanks

It would be amazing to be able to designate a frame where the effects are on full boar for transition purposes.

Oh yeah, this should be simple. How about being able to twitch just Motion Blur?

Also some sort of streaking blur would be cool.

Audio Amplitude would be cool.

Can't believe nobody mentioned this but how about seperate ease in-out controls for each effect, like your have in the global control.

Also Opacity and time re-mapping are great ideas.
6 years ago
Rotation please :) I'm working with Twitch as we speak and really really need to be able to Twitch some rotation.
6 years ago
I agree with Sterlin.

If we could twitch audio (Speed, treble, bass, reverb, etc..) that would be great.
It would make it easier to create the broken record SFX without having to manually time remap.

Also, how about Twitching expressions like, wiggle and time or even Twitching color values?

I think some people are asking for things that are already possible with Twitch. I like the idea of linking to a layer's opacity, a lot of what is being requested could be done by this one thing if you link it to an adjustment layer with affects applied to it. Then you could use any effects you wanted.
Thanks!!!

Oh, and can you make the Twitch have a camera control that can read data from an iphone's accelerometer. Like motion sketch, but in 3D and the iphone/ipod touch at the input device. That's all.
6 years ago
I just realized I am checking videocopilot.net more then my own email.

I don't understand why people asking for Twitch for Avid and Final Cut Pro when this is an AE Website, but it sure is a compliment to VC.

As far as a request for a new feature I have thought about it... a lot actually...and I.. am gonna think about it some more and get back to you

huh? huh? Alllllright! ThankS AndreW
Connor Guyler

yeah what Tom said :D

This:


1) freeze twitch button with a slider for ajustable ammount of twitch applyed to the freeze. So a quicker way of freezing a twitch style without puttin it in a comp etc and a way of ajusting how much is applyed to that frozen moment

2) Prehaps a Twitch speed adition, so basicaly a time remap that is random (things speed up and down in a twitch fashion)

3) Twitch distortion, something like a twitch version of turblance dispace or some other distortion effect would be cool for shape layers warping in and out or something

4) Twitch layers, if there is mutiple layers of footage you want to flick between them without having to do some snazzy editing

5) Twitch audio, dunno just thinking why should the idea of twitch just be applyed to immages?
Qra

Wow, almost entire post has beed deleted o_O. So, one more time :D In my opinion feature like bluring red/blue/green channel would be nice. I mean not all channels at the same time, but for an example just red channel make blurring in randomly time.

How about an "Andrew" plug-in? So I could just apply the "Andrew" effect to my footage and... TA-DA!!! everything would look great. 80}
James Sullivan

My vote is for two things:
1) Final Cut Pro Plugin. Reality TV would snap this up in every edit suite between here and wherever reality TV is not currently in production. It would simplify the online offline workflow many companies use and open twitch up to editors and not just AE buffs.

2) Twitch Composite modes. I use all of them all the time and to twitch them would be really cool and open up many possibilities.

Good luck.

Hi,
i am really interested in your work and like the stuff that you are doind.

Maybe it would be good, if there were an AUDIO REACT twitching mode, which allows you to ajust your animation to your audio like it is in "trapcode form".

Thanks in advance

p.s. QUESTION @ ANDREW:

http://www.vimeo.com/channels/19409#2320852

IS THIS VIDEO AND ESPECIALLY THE GLASS BREAK EFFECT "SINNED" AT 1:18 MADE WITH AE OR WITH ANOTHER,MAYBE an 3D PROG ?

WOULD BE COOL IF YOU COULD RECONSTRUCT THE PARTICLE EFFECT (0:22) AND THE "SINNED" (1:18) EFFECT if its made with after effects.

thank you very very much and greetings from germany

Hi Andrew, I was playing about with twitch inside of Fusion 5 and I applyed an effect mask on the twitch node with a circle Mask, this makes the effect local to only that portion of the mask , it creates a very interesting effect

Is it possible to bring that into AE or is there a way to achieve that already
if there is kindly show us

Hey I also think the Audio Twitch will be crazy
I'm glad you at least have an update in mind for twitch it's such a crazy little plugin

I have fair amount of coding knowledge, if i want to write plugins for AE where would be the best place a novice can get some info apart from registering with ASN
6 years ago
The only reason i haven't bought it is because it's not a Final Cut plugin. If that was possible at all i would eat that stuff up man. I just wouldn't like having to import each specific file and doing the cool transitions or twitch stuff and then re-import it back into final cut. It would just make the workflow a lot easier.

A possibility to twitch blur on R/G/B channels independently would be quite useful.

Keep up the great work.
ngambles

Here's some possible Twitch features I thought of or stuff from above that I agree would be awesome:

1.(Color) possibility of gradient colors instead of 1 solid color, along with linear/radial options, scale, angle, and center point of gradient.
2.(Color) Layer Blend Mode options for the color or graient.
3.(Color) individual hue random, saturation random, and lightness random.
4. Add a Glow option with options for random threshold, intensity, radius, colors, etc...
5. Add an Opacity Twitch ( I've used twitch on a solid layer used as a track matte for a video layer that I wanted to twitch on and off over some other footage. It'd be great if that was just built in.)
6. A Twitch effect Center Point with radius and falloff so the twitch effects can be localized.
7.(Time) Perhaps when time is twitched there could be a ghosting or echo of the skipped frames?
8.(Time) The ability to create a loose mask around a subject and use that to twitch in time while everything else plays normal. This would probably work well if there was some falloff between the mask selection and the rest, like a localized time warp that blends back to regular time.
9.A Physics Time Factor like Particular. Several peeps mentioned this and it would add a second stage of control after the initial settings are established.
10.Twitch the Audio in the Comp with the Video ( I saw lots of interest in this one too)
11. Raw Twitch Measurements (I saw this one too and think it would really help incorporate twitch across many pre-existing plug-ins and effects)
12. Distortions like fractal fields for footage and twitch effect values( color or blur or glow isn't the same value across the screen due to field values)
13. Multi-3D Layer control. I think that being able to use an instance of twitch on several 3D layer could come in handy for controlling layers like in your Virtual 3D Photos tut. I saw someone asking about the batman "fear" effect where the different levels were jumping around differently the other day. Having the ability to select 3 or 5 layers to twitch with different random seeds and amounts, and an ability to control the closeness of the random twitch values would give great control to a comp when the background, midground, and foreground are independent of each other.

....uuuhhhh. That's all I can think of right now. 13. Seems like a lucky place to stop.

You All Rock!

Hi All!

I don't know if anyone has already requested it, but I wanted to know if there's going to be a Twitch release for Final Cut Pro and Motion?... It would be very useful! You can add the effect in FC instead of going back to AE and render all over again.

Thanks!

I have seen similar requests already, but essentially I would like to link a Twitchy output to any other effect. I found a workaround that actually works already. You have one black solid on which you apply Twitch and then you get it to twitch to white. Then you use the Pixelsampler and map the lightness of the pixel to any other effect. It is a tedious workaround though....

I would like a function very similar to the time twitch.
Except it doesn't apply to the entire frame, only some parts of it (defined by randomly placed squares and rectangles).

This way you're able to get the distorted video effect, like if the camera took a hit or something.

Otherwise it's pretty much packed with everything already.

dan
6 years ago
Wow. there are lots of great ideas. I am still using CS2 and Twitch doesn't quite work for Premiere CS2. It Twitches but it's out of control... not usable.

I find myself using the transitions the most. Could there be more transitions added?

It would be pretty cool if there was a competition, or something like that, for people to submit there own presets for Twitch. the winners get a pat on the back and warm fuzzies knowing that they named the preset. This may be a good idea for building the hype for launching an update. Or even a good idea for an entirely new product.

thanks for the opportunity to give suggestions.

Twitch is awesome! Like another poster said i haven't had time to fully play with twitch so if you can do this already i would love to know how to do it...

Have the twitch stay up in longer intervals, instead of not controlling how long the twitch lasts... i know obviously twitch is meant to twitch, but a way to hold that twitch just a couple milliseconds longer would be nice. Sort of like if you're twitch a video in and you need the image up just long enough..... i don't know, does any of this makes sense???

Anyways superb work on everything you do!

gbowman

I love the fact that you're doing this...

my suggestion is a twitch that looks like bad TV interlace lines and pixelation. not necessarily a sliding thing but more like a picture fizzling out and randomly pixelating.

another cool feature would be a way to link the liquify or any other distortion plugin to twitch and make the distortion twitch on and off in a super jarring way.

there's my two cents
kris
6 years ago
A good idea for your nexr plug-ins is the one you made recently called "Fall-off and Sure target" if you put it all together as plugin, definitely, I will buy it. Especially adding more features of course then that would be awesome. I always thought, that is the next your next plugin. Can't wait if you do. Thanks andrew!
6 years ago
Oh, I have an idea.
What if you had it twitch different layers.
WHat I mean, is like, in the Bourne series, you know how the video would begin to flash between what was really happening, and what had happened in the past? You could have it do that.
Have it flicker between different layers.

Alec

I would like to see an ability to Twitch a clip from another file into that footage. Almost like a rough scattered memory. A split second of "What was that?" kind of think, where that footage actually twitches IN the footage you're working with.
Nick

how about a random pixel effect. You know like in CLOVERFIELD...when the camera glitches for a sec and there are all these random pixel squares on the screen obscuring the image.
Jasper

Make twitch able to twitch the z position, so you can create a look simmilair to somebody shaking a camera making things go out of focus etc. (Not 100% sure if it isn't possible now, if so nevermind this comment ;) )

Also the idea of a slider is just awesome, the ability to "twitch" other effects would be awesome.

I feel like everything people are suggesting besides "more presets" you can already do...

I honestly have only played around with TWITCH a few days and havent gone back to it...but i think it's fine just the way it is...everything is simple to understand and is organized just fine...

The only thing I can think of is something else to TWITCH...but I have no idea what that would be...haha

It is a great Product...

Well a lot of what I've read people mention can be done easily with the wiggle expression and a slider but if you're going to make an update you need to have some good, note worthy stuff or else why bother? This will take some time and consideration. We the people will let you know.

All hail VC-Kramer!

if possible - would be cool if you can build in and automatic audio twitcher. like in trapcode form.

you choose an audiofile and then it twiches to the music automaticly, how strong depending on which strenght you typed in...

but also the other comments are great.

More presets and more options to freeze the effect at any point but allow the footage to play..maybe mixing presets too.

I would like some impact twitches, for a quick way of distorting the image whilst creating camera shakes..that could be very helpfull.

3 Dimensional aspects would be nice, i.e. zoom on Z Axis. Revised Time twitch and remapping ramping would be cool, random freeze frame, and hold frame capabilites. Anything that makes it easier to link to audio
would be cool. More tutorials on more ways to use it. Digital and analog artifacting would be cool.

To response to what Tom wrote. If you make a Twitch Audio, please make it for more then the adobe sweet... perhaps pro-tools?? :D

and as for Visual... perhaps a 3D twitch which permits to propel on x,y,Z axis? With value sliders....

:D

Love the work.
6 years ago
scrubbing through the comments, it seems that all my requests have been mentioned.. I'll just second them:
- twitching audi with the "time twitch"
- a way to track the twitching of the different elements [blur, glow, slide.. etc] and link it to other effects.. also an independent twitching slider(s) to be linked as well..
AndrewYY
6 years ago
The ability to twitch between effects on and off for the layer would be nice (via something like cc-composite, with blend modes and stuff) So basically twitch will be able to twitch any layers of adjustments before twitch on and off.

In my opinion, that would make twitch completely customizable, and allow for more complex things like colour correction that would be too clunky to include in the plugin itself.

It works great, so I can't think of anything new I would add to it, other than more preset settings...as if there weren't enough already????...LOL. I think Twitch can be left alone for a while. It's great, and it would be hard to think of new things which would require a big update for.
Mark

My request has more to do with AE as a whole program, not just the twitch plugin. What I would love to see is when you play back a composition that any fx's parameters that you have animated with show the values changing as the animation plays out. That way if something is acting weird it's easier to see it than just looking at the graph editor.
Andrew

That would be so cool :)

Great! I got twitch only because i thought I could somehow twitch time also! so that would infact be a really cool feature (where it samples frames randomly from different places in the clip... kinda like in the Grudge)

Twitch would be nice if it had a preset that would look like a shaky camera man. All the included presets aren't quite jerky or smooth or natural for a bad camera man. I have tried fiddling with the sliders but I just can't get it right.

I think Twitch is an awesome plug in, I love that randomness and chaos. What I would love to see for AE is a plug in that is kinda like Fluid Mask for Photoshop that detects edges and gives you the ability to isolate an object and save a whole lot of time rotoscoping or chroma keying.I think this should be possible through motion detection and color analysis. I'm not sure how far technology is to this point to create such a plug in but if it excists it would be the best thing ever. I think some pre-animated templates for Twitch would be cool, in combination with SureTarget in 3D space including positioning of the camera. Like for instance having a bunch of monitors in 3D space randomly and then one by one coming at you and show their content.I'm thinking of making such a thing for my showreel.
6 years ago
Different types of blurs would be cool and maybe some distortion effects would be interesting. Twitch is already my favorite plug-in and fairly cheap for the unique possibilities it provides.

hum...it is a very nice plugin, the only thing I would add (and not sure if you will get what i mean) is that there could be an X-Ray option, like when the light tweaks, you could see lines in popel´s edges and in "strong" or "colorful" points of people...i dunno.

I think you pretty much have everything covered with twitch. I'm sure you could come up with some clever additions. I'm still waiting for a plugin that creates all my work for me with the click of the mouse, although you are pretty close to it with suretarget.

I honestly haven't gotten around to playing with twitch yet, so forgive me if this is already possible, but how about twitching around time, but with time still progressing along. Kind of like in the "saw" films, where say, someone is being killed and as the guy is thinking about trying to save them, its jittering and looping and such

I think that the plugin is great, but it could maybe use some more presets.

From the beginning i wanted to see function that just randomly twitches a Slider, so you can link it to any effect, right now i use light and maltannon's pixelsampler toold like said in one of the tutorials, but build in would be much easier
Take care

it would be helpful to have an easier way to express the twitch value as raw numbers; is that possible?

So that you could basically direct another effect's value expression to the twitch amounts directly.
