    Hi there, i do racing videos on YT and was wondering what software and effects you use for the FSR highlights, because i think they look magnificent! I always try to get my videos to look the best and would really like some help in getting them up to par with yours.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    BTW. i use Vegas Pro 11 and Fraps.

    have you got After Effects as well cos if you do you can do so much more with effects on that program and thats what simon uses in his highlights videos and Fraps are good for Capturing the action just make sure you have the right sound essentials

    All the 2010-2012 WC Highlights were done with Vegas 10, After Effects (CS3), Fraps, and Photoshop (again CS3).

    After Effects is indeed complex, but there are more than enough free tutorials floating around the net to teach yourself how to use it - it just takes a lot of time and experimentation.

    The majority of the effects/plugins used are default ones in Vegas and After Effects.
