A quick but powerful effect that shows a card impossibly change right before your spectators eyes! Apperently, it's actually called the Erdnase Color Change, sometimes called the Houdini Color Change. Credit goes to Houdini himself for creating this trick.

Why is it private?

Because luke674's video is set to private and only he can view. He has to unselect the private mode at his youtube channel page.

If you can't make a vid that works, can you actually make instruction on how to do it which is the whole purpose of the website?

Try "bridge sized" cards. They are what I do most of my magic with. They are great for beginners. They are just as long as standard "poker sized" cards but they are a little narrower. They are made for old ladies playing bridge with small hands - holding 13 cards at a time was tough.

Come on man, give credit where it's due. This is the Erdnase Color Change, sometimes called the Houdini Color Change, as it is in fact, created way back by Houdini himself. 6/10 for performance. Try this: After you bring the 2nd card to the top and is hiding it in your palm, show the top card again by sliding your hidden card to the right. You should stick your deck hand's pinky out so you can rest the hidden card on it. THEN slide the hidden card over the top card. This way its more convincing AND visual.

Source for the fact that Houdini invented it? As i know the Houdini change as a different change. As far as i have heard and read the original source for this change is in the legendary book Expert at the Card Table by S.W. Erdnase, called "transformation-first method" later given the popular name Erdnase Change or the classic color change.

I really like knowing the origin of an effect. Then I normally research that person and try to learn more about their style. Thanks for the update

Hey man thanks for the tip...I didn't actually know the name or origin and I have no clue how to find it. But I'm not trying to take credit...It's just I don't have time to give credit...30 seconds is not a lot of time. But yea, I'll edit the description...Thanks for watching!!!

I as well would like the source for Houdini inventing it. As said before, the latest I can track it is in Erdnase. (best book in the world BTW)
