    Resurrection (1999)
    Hi, can you please describe what Visual Special Effect was utilized in a segment of the film Resurrection (1999)? Director is Russell Mulcahy, Cinematography is by Jonathan Freeman and Film Editing is by Gordon McClellan Cast: Christopher Lambert as Det. John Prudhomme and Leland Orser as Det. Andrew Hollinsworth This effect occurs in a few brief cuts on 42:19 on thereafter; Det. John Prudhomme (played by Christopher Lambert) enters a warehouse and trys in vain to save a victim who has his leg amputated. I also noticed this Visual Special Effect used in the British film Muscle (2019)? (This movie was shot entirely in Black & White) Director is Gerard Johnson, Cinematography is by Stuart Bentley and Film Editing is by Ian Davies Cast: Craig Fairbrass as Terry, Cavan Clerkin as Simon and Lorraine Burroughs as Crystal This effect occurs in the middle of a booze and drugs orgy & party sequence that begins on 1:00:43 starts @ 01:03:06 and concludes @ 01:03:52 when the main protagonist Simon (played by Cavan Clerkin) takes Crystal (played by Lorraine Burroughs) up to his bedroom… Can you put a label & name for this Visual Special Effect and can it be re-created with any video footage in Final Cut Pro or any other software you care to mention? Kind Regards

    Hi Zicoceo - I've linked this thread to a FCPX course -- maybe the effect will be described in it [you can check out the other FCP courses as well]. I would suggest that you try to describe the effect itself, I think you'd be much more likely to get a response than waiting for someone to put in a lot of time hunting around on their own for the film clips..

    I agree with Joe that it would be much better to post a few stills or even a short video excerpt of the effect. I don’t know these films and therefore can’t help, but if you can post a visual aid I’d be happy to try. Also worth noting that PAL DVDs are at 25fps and are sped up compared to the 24fps original/online/US DVD/Blu-ray version, so posting a time reference for an older film can be problematic as they won’t match up. (Best to note the source if you have to give a time code.)
