Power-Up Your YouTube Videos

Unless you’re a Vegas nut or an After Effects devotee, adding special effects to your videos can seem like an impossible task. Which is why you may find it worthwhile heading over to the Powerful Stuff channel for a look at a new tool uploaded by Virgin Media.


While it’s worth saying from the outset that you won’t be able to record the results, Powerful Stuff enables you to insert special effects into your videos – or any of the videos on the channel itself – that range from snow to explosions. You can also add sound effects that run the gamut from evil laughter to applause. In fact, you can even add a “Genre Filter” to your work, which will lend it the look of anything from the moody tones of Film Noir to the Technicolor glow of 1970s Cinema.


So, if you find yourself with a spare minute, mosey over to Powerful Stuff, have a play around with the tools and share the results with your friends.


Have fun,

Wtf... how are we supposed to use it? There's no link to it or anything...

No offence but those effects are crap and pix elated. The sound FX are too crackly. Overall just very poor quality stuff.

Look, do everyone a favour by contributing to something useful and tell your mates there at youtube that what the people need is a way to read the info section of a video before actually downloading several megabytes worth of video data. On a mobile connection every BIT counts. A popup box that dynamically loads the text would be useful. It's a five minute job. Thanks.

Yeah, do all this, make a professional job of it then get the Viewcount FROZEN for weeks.
When is something going to be done about that?
