But you may be wondering, what exactly are VHS glitch effects? Simply put, VHS glitch effects are a type of visual distortion that mimics the look of a malfunctioning VHS tape. These effects can add a nostalgic, retro feel to your videos, while also conveying a sense of glitchy, experimental energy.

The pack is designed to be easy to use, with drag-and-drop functionality that makes it simple to add these effects to your projects 
in editing software like Premiere Pro, After Effects, and DaVinci Resolve. And because the effects are delivered as high-quality, 4K video files, you can be sure that they will look great no matter how you use them.


How to Use Experimental VHS Glitch FX

Here are the steps to use Experimental VHS Glitch FX to create stunning glitch effects in your videos:

Step 1: Choose your footage 📹

Select the footage you want to add glitch effects to. This could be anything from a music video to a short film or a social media post.

Step 2: Drag and Drop the Glitch Effects 💻

Once you've selected your footage, open your video editing software and drag and drop the Experimental VHS Glitch FX effects onto the timeline. No installation required, simply bring the video files directly into your editing software. You can experiment with different effects and combinations until you achieve the desired look.

Step 3: Adjust the Settings ⚙️

To fine-tune your glitch effects, adjust the settings such as the blending mode, opacity, and saturation. This will help you achieve a unique and personalised look for your video. You could also get a bit more advanced and alter the hue of the clips (this shifts the colours) with an effect like Hue/Saturation in After Effects by rotating the Master Hue dial. The same can be achieved in Premiere Pro with the Lumetri Color effect.

Step 4: Export Your Video 📦

Once you're satisfied with the final result, export your video and share it with the world! Oh, and definitely share it with us too... we may just feature it on our website 🙌🏼

Just a note on export settings: if you choose to use the H.264 codec to deliver your videos, we would recommend utilising a higher bit-rate with 2 passes. This will reduce any "blocky" artefacts that you might find when compressing intricate clips like these VHS glitch effects.
