Lyric Bad Reception

Bad Reception

The Lyric Bad Reception filter applies image and chroma distortions that simulate bad TV signal reception. These consist of a horizontal random wave distortion whose frequency, amplitude and motion can be controlled, along with an optional chroma distortion that shifts the R, G adnd B channels out of aligmnment.

The Lyric Bad Reception filter includes a set of effect controls that are common across all Lyric effect filters. For a detailed description of these controls, please see the Common Effect Controls documentation.

Additionally, all Lyric Effect filters can be applied through mattes or masks to constrain the filter effect to particular areas of the image. For background information on mattes and masks, please refer to the Lyric Matte Primer.

The Amplitude slider controls the size of the horizontal distortion. The Frequency slider controls the frequency of the noise wave, as shown in the examples below.


You can simulate a transient distortion by keyframing the Amplitude control, rising from 0 to a peak and then down to 0 again.

The Wave Motion slider controls the wave animation throughout the clip. Setting it to 0 stops all wave motion, increasing values make the wave motion faster. You will generally need to render the video to properly judge the settings for this control.

The RGB Distortion slider controls the amount that the R, G and B channels are moved out of alignment. Setting this control to 0 removes all chroma distortion and allows the filter to be used as a noisy-wave distortion filter.

The Effect Controls section is a set of common controls that are documented on the Common Effect Controls page. They can be used to achieve masked and other specialized filter effects.
