Can't you just duplicate the futage layer, make a mask, change the mode to 'Add' and use the Hue/Saturation effect to change the light color?

Andrew always does the most complex version of all the stuff! Instead of using levels just set the blending mode to add!!

So do I need a new adjustment layer for each gunshot I make? Because the masks with change each time.

Action Essentials 2 is amazing for muzzle flashes

A much easier way to do this is to just duplicate your base layer and change the mode to add. Then put the duplicated layer on top of your base layer and draw a mask where you want the light to be at.
yeah

You could use some still pictures you created in Photoshop that kind of hit the lens. That's allways a plus.

Hey great tutorial. How did you get that Cool Color Effect. I am trying to get that same look but can't. Do you have any color grading tips. Maybe a future color grading tutorial is in the works.

Hi guys I have a problem
with dragging the gun shot to where I want it.
When I drag the gun shot in the composition with the video it places the gun shot in the beginning of the time line. How do I get it to go to what ever frame I have selected instead of starting at the beginning?

you lazy bum, you could have spent a little more time on the masks!

j/k, lol

Clear as it could possibly be man! The more I watch these tutorials the closer i get to buying the DVDs! I can't even imagine what you put in those if you are giving us this for free!

First patting oneself on the back your magnificent Web and your magnificent instruction manuals, you want to ask you about an effect that maybe seems simple but I do not manage to do the truth, the effect comes from little helmet of bullet when a weapon fires a shot, thank you for your help

For certain destiny the text is understood well I do not speak English and I have had to use a translator
