A while back I ran some introductory video editing workshops. I used to tell the participants about a particularly cool effect that I once found in Pinnacle; it was a pinhata that came swinging into the first video along with a stick that hit the second video out of it and it unfolded across the screen. The point of this anecdote is the following: Don't use ...

Let me start by saying what they did there is actually far, Far, FAR simpler than you think. I'll try to break it down shot by shot what is going on. On the title, there are three main elements. The first element fades in on a time lapse of clouds moving across the mountain. This appears to be the same time lapse they use a few seconds later for the ...

When you apply a transition between two clips, Premiere needs to use the frames of footage for each clip that go to the start and end of the transition. If there's no footage past that point, it won't allow you to apply the transition. Consider my illustration below. You may need to have some footage remaining after the end of your clip to allow for this....

What it is There is no set name for this transition as it isn't a standard transition effect that you would expect to find as a preset in your editing software. It is probably a custom made transition sequence, however it's a rather simple one. It just takes the same image multiple time, applies different filters to them and uses a simple slide-in effect to ...

The least noticeable transition is a cut. Any transition, even a dissolve takes some time and draws attention to itself to some extent. That means a transition (and here I'm using transition to mean anything else but a hard cut) becomes part of the story that you're telling. For example a dissolve would seem at first glimpse to be a way of merging two ...

This transition is called a Wipe.

Playing the video at 1/4 speed on YouTube, there's no discernible transition other than a hard cut. If there were some sort of cross-fade or dip-to-black or luma fade, it should be visible at that speed. And it's not. I suspect that part of what makes the hard cut transition successful in that video is that the motion and the balance of the center of ...

First, add your desired transition to your timeline, allowing it to be applied to only one of your clips for now: Select the transition and open the Effect Controls panel: Finally, from the Alignment dropdown, simply select the "Center at Cut" option: The transition will now be applied to both clips!

An incredibly easy way to cut this "by hand" would be to nest your alternating clips and turn that nested sequence into a multicam sequence by right-clicking the nested sequence and hitting "Multicam > Enable". Then, by going into the Multicam Editor (Open this in your "Windows" or "View" menu), you can press play and hit "1" and "2" on your keyboard to cut ...

I would imagine that the music video you posted used manual edits to achieve that effect. However, there are a few automated beat detection utilities out there which you might like. One After Effects / Premiere plugin specifically dedicated to beat detection and music is Mamoworld's Beat Assistant. I haven't used the plugin (cost ~$40), but it should work ...

Grab a pre-keyed smoke element from somewhere. Mask the smoke element as desired. Copy that mask onto the text or you can parent the mask as an adjustment layer. Keyframe opacity of text, linear wipe with feather in a gradient/ramp solid for the background. The "sparkling" effects are lens flares (see JJ Abrams) The curtain moving effect could be just ...

This is a surprisingly tricky question, as Premiere doesn't let you edit transitions like, say FCP does. One way of doing it is to use presets: First create a preset for your fade in. Set two opacity keyframes for your fade-in then in the Effect Control panel right click on the Opacity effect and choose Save Preset: call it fade-in or whatever and choose ...

Depends on your idea. Simplest way is using a Linear Wipe Effect (on the strip above). For more complex transitions I'd suggest to animate a rectangular mask path in order to get most control, see the manual: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/using/masking-tracking.html

You could use the particle engine CC Particle World. Set the particles to be shaded spheres, adjust the X&Y radius of the producer to fill the screen, adjust the birth rate to produce particles at the rate you need, turn off gravity and velocity. set the end size to be so big that they fill the screen. Set the Particle Transfer Mode to "black matte", ...

The "Slide Tool" tool makes it possible to move a single clip without loosing the transition connected to another clip.

According to the comments on that page, it is rotoscoped - which is (from Wikipedia) the technique of manually creating a matte for an element on a live-action plate so it may be composited over another background.

This needs a slightly elaborate filtergraph to do as described. -filter_complex "[0]split[b1][b2]; [b1]crop=iw/2:ih:0:0[b1]; [b2]crop=iw/2:ih:iw/2:0[b2]; [1][b1]overlay=x='0-(W/2)*(t-DUR0)/D':enable=gte(t,DUR0)[ob1]; [ob1][b2]overlay=x='W/2+(W/2)*(t-DUR0)/D':enable=gte(t,DUR0)[fv] " where 0 is video '1' and 1 is video '2'. DUR0 ...

Some variant of: ffmpeg -i FIRST -i SECOND -lavfi "blend=all_expr='if(lte((W/2-sqrt((X-W/2)*(X-W/2)))+N*SW,W/2),A,B)'" OUTPUT

You didn't mention which version of PPro you are using; but in version CS6 and prior there IS a bug with cross dissolve which is a bit idiosyncratic. The fix; move all of your video (select all) up one layer. Then add black video; or a color matte (black) which is the length of your program to the bottom (first) video track. This in essence resets all ...

There is no magic transition that will help you. Simple cuts usually work best. A fade through black may help convey a sense of time passing. The most important thing is to think about the story you want to tell. Select the material that is important to telling that story, edit it together with cuts, and then add complex transitions only if you need to work ...

I believe that the effect used for both the zoom in the beginning and the multiple vertical frames later on is the effect 'BlurMoCurves'. It's part of Sapphire OFX plugins and can be installed (and used) in Sony Vegas Pro. It's not a transition but thanks to zooming it can look like one. The very last frames, when the clip goes down vertically, is probably ...

The difference between a Dub and a Voice-over is that a Dub attempts to match a foreign language with lip movement and fully replace the audio using new words that don't change the meaning (much) whereas a Voice-over attempts to keep the original audio at a low level to preserve the feeling of the original and can be a bit freer with the translation. Even ...

Use cuts for most all transitions. Some exceptions... Use transitions which convey a meaning: A clockwise wipe indicates the passage of time. Dreamy blur (with harp music) for a daydream sequence. Cross dissolve for gentle moments/sensitive topics. One absolute exception: When doing a kids video (made for kids), add plenty of silly transitions. The more ...

First, check to make sure that neither you nor the app have created handles on your clips. Handles are a few frames at the beginning and end of a clip that are used to overlap with another clip when doing a crossfade or other transition. If you're sure that the in and out points of the clips really are the first and last frames of each clip, then you're ...

Here's a list of free third-party plugins for Premiere Pro, including additional transitions. Here's the official Adobe Add-on Website, where you will find both free and paid-for plugins, also including some transition preset packs. Here's a great tool which will help you find even more transition presets on your own!

The two most common approaches, if you don't have B-roll coverage, is either a dissolve (usually a cross-dissolve) or a fade-out/fade-in (usually dip-to-black). Garish effects (essentially all the others offered in a typical NLE) can also be used (but are usually avoided). IF the clip you are cutting out means joining what looks like a single take (with a ...

It might not be possible to do it that way. The best way I'm familiar with is actually the other way around. You start a project in Adobe Premiere Pro Use the "Direct-Link" function to import your Premiere project into Speedgrade. Now, all editorial changes from premiere will update into Speedgrade. A lot of Speedgrade functions will disappear (raw ...

To get filters, you can use photoshop for that. iMovie can do all of the effects that you were talking about, and iMovie has a pretty nice collection of filters too. Hope that helps!

If you double-click on transition "wipe", in the timeline, at the "source window" will appear settings of the transition. There you can adjust the width and color of the border, which will be visible as a vertical strip on the border of the transition.
