It is not Card Thru Window.
Looks like a Card Change Trick.

I think the effect plays out like this:

One card is taped to the window, back facing the audience

Two cards are then chosen

The first card disappears and the "back card" changes into the first selection

The magician takes the second selection, covers the first selection on the window with his hand. The first selection on the other side of the window changes to the second selection and the second selection in the magician's hand becomes the first.

As far as I understand, it's a not a direct card through window, but pretty much a color change/transpo presented as a card through window. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I do not get it, When do we see the card through window? I see a card on other side of glass changing but not a card through window. in the youtube clip he just points to the window and the camera shows it is there. In fact in the very beginning you see the card in the shot back out on the other side of the window.

So is this a CAMERA effect not a real world presentation?
I am getting tired of those effects that look great on video but really would not be practical in normal performing conditions.

Someone review this when you get the product.


Do you have have an idea of how Card through window was originally done?

A card behind a window, which was in view if you looked at it, but the window was never part of the scene until the reveal.

Even without this, you still have a card THROUGH window, as a card is chosen, and then found on the other side of a window, therefore, it went THROUGH the window.

THEN, you have a second card, which changes places with the first card, therefor it TOO went THROUGH the window.

So, you have actually TWO cards THROUGH a window.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Even if the card behind the window comes into play too early for some reason, I figure I will just use it as part of the effect. I would just say I have a prediction taped to the window over on the other side of the room so I cannot touch it. I would then cause it to go to the other side and if anyone doubted that, they surely would believe after the rest of window.

This looks amazing! David Stone has such magical charisma about his magical performance and style.

With regards to this effect - it does appear that a card is already taped to some sort of window. Then a magical transposition through the window occurs - BUT CAN THAT CARD BE HANDED OUT?

But more importantly, how much setup is required?

Looks to be as much set up at John Kennedy's version. I don't think the card can be handed out. You would need to use a switch.

On the Ellusionist podcast they say it takes five seconds to set-up, and that it can be done at any time of day. As for handing the card out, you can see how it would play out by watching the second of the trailers, which I linked above.

The entire routine is pretty much standard up to the ending. Setup is the same for both Kennedy's and Stone's. Stone's is considerably cheaper, a lot flashier, but I'm not quite sure that I would consider it to be a better version, John Kennedy's is a bit more direct and magical.

I actually am kind of surprised that there seems to be a need for a switch of the card from the window.

As I mentioned, I played with the exact same idea for an effect, possibly a similar method, possibly not, but the card left on the window was completely clean, out side of the tape.

Why do some magicians feel the need to pick apart effects lol? This is really the hottest looking effect to date this year and people are already barking. You really have to think of the way you felt when you watched the demo for the first time. This is how it will look for the spectator and they will feel the same way you did when you first seen it,,, AMAZED. Remember buddies that your spectators will not have the option to keep watching the effect over and over again like we do with demos. Just buy it lol

I don't find a big issue with having to switch out the card before you hand it out for inspection, the trade off not ending clean is worth it for the very visual change. Same goes for John Kennedy's version (except you're a bit more restricted as to how you should clean up due to the nature of what you're cleaning up). On that note, Stone's is way easier to clean up and a lot less angle sensitive while cleaning up.

I'm going to give credit where credit is due on this one. After watching both trailers (particularly the second, which can be found on Stone's site and which I linked above), and listening to the podcast interview, I feel pretty knowledgeable about what I'm going to be getting (even if I don't know the specific mechanics of the gimmick itself) as well as the routine's strengths and limitations. I'm not quite sure what you want them to say that's not readily apparent from the demos or that's not discussed on the interview.
