Filter Set | JR Transitions Pack - blur/stretch/zoom plus white flash

I’m joining in with the current “filter-set CRAZE!” …

…with 5 more newly-designed transitions…
These are 3 filter sets using fairly simple combinations of blur/stretch/zoom to give smooth modern transitions between clips.
Also two filter sets giving a “white-flash” effect - one long, one short.



All filter sets are designed for projects at 1080P, 30 frames per second.
Set your transition length for the number of frames specified in each file-name (listed below).
Transition type: see note after each filename below.

(Transition type: DISSOLVE).

(Transition type: DISSOLVE).

(Transition type: DISSOLVE).

(Transition type: CUT - set at 50%).

(Transition type: CUT - set at 50%).

How to install this effect:

Shotcut - Settings - App Data Directory - Show - filter-sets (unzip the contents of the archive into this folder).

Thanks @musicalbox.
Filter-wise, they are quite simple. Just combinations of blur:box and SPR. For the white Flash transition I simply adjusted the white balance in the “Levels” filter. Nothing too complex…

Great set! Looks beautiful!

This proves that you don’t always need tons of filters for popular and great looking transitions.
I just finished playing with your pack. (… I mean your filter set pack of course lol)
All keepers! Very useful.

Maybe two remarks about the whiteflash-45-frames set though:


I made the transition 1 second + 15 frames (45 frames)
Transition type: Cut
Position: 50%

I see this in the Keyframes panel:

There are 11 unused frames at the end of the transition clip. So in reality, the duration of the effect is only 1 second + 2 frames (32 frames).
Wouldn’t it be better to use a 1 second transition instead?


The 2 images should switch when the Levels filter reaches it’s maximum intensity, but the second image appears 3 frames after the Levels filter starts lowering in intensity:

Here’s a modified version, on a 1-second transition

And, one (small) remark about the blur-horizontal-ONLY-12-frames set

There is a ghost keyframe outside the right-hand side of the transition

What a relief! :wink: :smiley:

Your testing is more meticulous than my creating! Well done, yes you are totally correct. Good idea.

Again, yes, I was sloppy. Thanks for being on the case!

So there is! Again, this needs deleting. Thanks for the detective work, Inspector Clouseau…
