using bulge

I need to use bulge effect, the problem is it just applies to the whole timeline.
I want it for only a few seconds

    Make sure you're working in a composite shot and not in the editor timeline, then try creating a grade layer, trimming it to the part of the timeline you want it to affect, and apply the bulge to the grade layer.
    Alternatively, you could also keyframe the controls of the bulge effect on and off, you can also get a fade by doing that.

    A third option is to cut the footage at the points where you want the bulge to start and stop, and apply the effect to only that bit in between.
