Reset is about 2 seconds.

Yes you can use US bills or different sized bills/polymers

You can reuse the gimmick

Thanks for the reply 😊

2 second reset sounds good, can it be done in the open ?

When you say the gimmick can be reused does that mean your supplied with just one.


Sadly, You're supplied with none; you must make the gimmick, and it involves some pretty major arts and crafts, imo
(Please don't blast me, it's just my opinion)



I highly recommend doing a 'practice' build with regular paper (maybe write different things on each reveal etc) if are new to the 'arts and crafts' side of gimmicks (which is totally fine, I know some seriously magicians that have not done any gimmickry!)

After that, you should be fine with the note side of things.

And yes, we opted to not supply people with money! :-D

It works with polymer money, but the specific question of "Will this work with Canadian bills" has been dodged. They ARE different questions. Canadian bills are polymer but also, they have transparent windows in them. Does this matter or not?

I don't think the question has been dodged as the polymer bills that we have here in the UK have transparent windows too and as Marc is from the UK I would think that answers the question at a guess.

Marc,congrats on the new Changeling. I have both the original and the ODO. The original has been my go to paper magic effect. Is it possible to purchase more m****ts so I can build more gimmicks?

This looks absolutely fantastic. I am interested in creating a $1 to $100 gimmick. What would be the monetary damage in terms of arts and crafts to accomplish this?

I also watched the video for Elvolve and loved the visual morphing effect for the change. Can it be applied to denomination changes as well in lieu of playing cards?

I was unaware of both of these releases until now and on a fence at the crossroads so any information is greatly appreciated. Depending on the information provided, I may opt to purchase both of these wonderful new products thanks to the invaluable advice from my fellow magicians.

If someone can supply me the original gimmick made up in U.K. notes in the best change possible I will pay for obviously the original effect , the notes used to make it and £25 plus postage on top for making it . If anyone can make this gimmick well and is interested please pm me and I will pay pal you straight away . Best wishes Tarik 🙂

This is a really great visual effect. The only thing I found was that the video was very badly put together and very drawn out and unclear. The gimmick itself is great once assembled - it would just be nice for a better instructional video to be made.

Ok, so I've built a good (US version) removable ODO gimmick and watched the DVD several times. I cannot find or figure out how the gimmick is placed into the full final reveal note ?? I can be a tad dense at times, so if someone can give me a time marker reference on the DVD where this explained, I'd be a happy guy.

I found the DVD a bit tedious to watch as one continuous filming. A US note construction would be great also. But, I think this is going to go over great once I can figure out the handling.

Is there a Facebook group where any of these topics are discussed ?

Thanks in advance.

This is the whole problem these days you shouldn’t need a Facebook filler it should be complete like Mark Mason does with a DVD that you can keep for future reference not a link that one day someday I guarantee you won’t work . Old school but the best school Tarik 🙂 ps if you want to hide a secret put it in print

Nice effect, gimmick... eh, a bit harder to make than others I've done... but the instruction ? Lacking IMO

Ah...I said DVD....sorry... the LINK - Fortunately I invested in a video capturing program and now capture these 'links' as files.

...and YES, Mark Mason is one of the best at producing, marketing and packaging the products he sells I agree 100%

Kinda sad to pay $ for a few m****ts & not-so-good-tutorial !?

(I better zip it or I'll have no chance of the creator offering any help eh ?)

Ah...so just watched the 'Final Thoughts & Reset' and I 'MAY' have a clue as to how to set this up for performance.

Hmmm... with US bills the 'reset' does not quite come out right ? ARRGHHH... this is SO frustrating !!!!

Go back to your shop and ask them to help you.

I did a supplementary video for our customers to help them out.

You first stop with any issues should be your shop, I see so many asking for help on here with new items that are not working right etc, first call should be your shop.

Please do not ask me for the video (as a refusal often offends) it is something we offer quite regualrly to our customers only as unfortunately this kind of thing crops up far too often.

Thanks for the advice Mark. I will try that. But was really hoping Marc would chime in here on how to place / reset the gimmick with US bills. I just can't figure it out from his tutorials.

I'm also hoping that Marc will get back to me. I have sent him emails to 2 different addresses, a message on Facebook Messenger and on Instagram and still no response. Now I have just sent him a PM on the Café. I have built my first Changeling ODO gimmick but cannot work out how to fold in the ungimmicked bill to set it up. I have watched the downloaded instructions three times and he does not give any instructions on how to fold the regular bill and add it to the gimmick. He just quickly does it and it's too fast for me to work it out. I'm using Canadian bills.

EXACTLY ! Mine are US bills....but a whole tutorial without the most crucial part ?! How to use the dang thing after you've painstakingly created it.

I found the lack of proper instructions about how to set the bill to be infuriating, too. Marc takes absolutely forever making awkward jokes and drawing out every step of the process, I actually had to put my video on 2x speed just because he was driving me insane. And then, once the gimmick is constructed, he's got almost nothing to say! Nothing about how to set up the gimmick, nothing about how to perform the trick, nothing about clean-up...he goes on and on during the construction portion of the video talking about how meticulous he is, but then seems to forget he was supposed to be teaching us how to *perform* Changeling ODO, not just how to construct the bill.
