Okay, so quite a few people were wondering how I accomplished the "vanishing" effect in my Supernatural "Empty" vid (self-pimping, HEE!) and Katie even asked for a tutorial so I decided to give one.

First off, though, I wanted to mention that I'm not the first person who's done this and I actually learned through a good friend's site (Fan4Lost on LVI, if anyone knows her). And there are tons of others that know this such as Aislynn, Dayln, etc, etc. Unfortunately, Steph's tutorial died, so I thought I'd give my own input and tricks.

















Your final product should look somewhat like this (clicky)...

Hope this was helpful to all you guys!

ETA: By the way, I'm fairly certain this method works with Windows Media Maker as well since all that is really required for it is a fade transition and a type of Photoshop-like program.

Oh, that's a great tutorial, Maria! Thank you so much! I'm going to link you into the Guide, if you don't mind? (And I'll be commenting on your amazing vid, too! )

And yes, this method should work with WMM as well. Yay for a multi-platform effect that looks awesome and works on even something like WMM!

Thankies! A lot of credit goes to Steph, you, and Becca for where I initially learned how to put the pieces together. I just basically explained Photoshop in this tut. Haha.

Oh, I'm being listed in a guide! I'm famous! *puts on her cool sunglasses*

Wow, something that works just as well in WMM as in Vegas? Thought I'd never see the day!

Oh you saw the vid? I hope you liked - or didn't weep in angsty tears over it!
