    I watched a video on YouTube and am kind of intrigued, how do you get these effects, do you need a special program?

    Heres the link to the video by the way

    Yea, I figured that much, but when I tried it, every time I changed the effect it stopped recording.

    Am I able to put the effects on a video that was already created?

    It looks like he's applying the effects to a webcam broadcast. I'm not sure exactly how he's doing it, but the effects look like they're the common built-in Photo Booth effects.

    He could be using a screen capture tool to capture the photo booth window.

    Screen capture doesn't produce video... only still images.

    I dont think he meant the OSX screen capture, he meant a program like iShowU which records the screen in real-time video.

    Ahhh! He didn't mention any 3rd party app name, so "screen capture tool" meant "screen capture tool" to me. Imagine that! :D

    he could be using multiple apps:

    Photobooth + Snapzprox(Ambrosia software)

    or

    Photo booth records it and then he combines them with iMovie

    hope this gives you an idea..

    Couldn't he have just put effects on later with a program like Final Cut, Premiere or aftereffects?

    Im not sure what program would do that as im not really a video guy... God bless Photoshop.....

    See thats what I though of trying to do, but in iMovie, I couldn't find any effects, and then I searched on the Apple website and it gave like a worksheet to do. But I had no idea where they started. I just got all confused.

    Here is said "Lesson"

    well that tutorial uses the iMovie HD 06, if you purchased a new mac then it is now using the iLife 08.

    you can download the copy of iMovie HD 06:
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/imovieHD6.html

    install it.. and then follow that tutorial.. iMovie 06 gives you more options.. i.e. effects..
    rather than the new iMovie 08(the only thing I like about the new one is ease of use... you can create a video in less than 10 mins)
