Football TV coverage - stinger transition - analysed and slowed down

I was watching the BBC TV coverage of the women’s world cup football and this stinger transition caught my eye so I’ve captured it and slowed it down to see in detail what is going on, frame by frame.

There’s a lot going on in the space of a few frames!

If anyone’s looking for a challenge, here’s one - re-create this (or similar) in Shotcut…


Où peut-on télécharger l’original ?

Where can we download the original?

Interesting challenge @jonray,
I bet it will be fun to try something like this in Shotcut. On one track of course. Sadly, one tracks will mean compromise. There will be no graphics (and I guess no gradient) in the two panels.

Will need a lot of filters…
I see 2 Text: Simple filters, 2 Text: Rich filters, 2 Crop filters, 1 SP&R filter.
And most likely, somewhere in the list, a Mask: Simple Shape filter with a Mask: Apply filter.
And one or two Opacity filters.

Dang! At least 10 filters (and a lot of keyframes) :scream: :rofl:

I’ll give it a try Tuesday when I get back home :slight_smile:

Hi @namna, I uploaded it to my Google Drive:

Merci, Téléchargée.
Avez-vous une idée du nom de la police utilisée ?

Thanks, Downloaded.
Do you have an idea of the name of the font used?


Ils ont utilisé une police de caractères haute, étroite et grasse.
J’en ai quelques-unes sur mon ordinateur.
De mémoire, deux d’entre elles devraient ressembler à celle de la vidéo

Faites une recherche sur Dafont avec les mots-clés suivants

Première police : “Tall Handsome”
Deuxième police : " Watchtower "

Je pense qu’il y en a une autre qui conviendrait aussi.
Essayez une recherche avec le mot-clé “Delirium”

They used a tall, narrow and bold font.
I have a few of those on my computer.
From memory, two of them should look like the one in the video.

Do a search on Dafont with the following keywords

First font: "Tall Handsome
Second font: "Watchtower

I think there’s another one that would work too.
Try a search using the keyword “Delirium”.

@MusicalBox Merci beaucoup, “Delirium NCV” me semble la plus proche, cela devrait le faire.

@MusicalBox Thank you very much, “Delirium NCV” seems the closest to me, that should do it.

Hi folks - here is my attempt at re-creating this transition.

DON’T ASK ME HOW I DID IT!!! (Answer - lots of blood sweat and tears… several attempts… lots of mixing down… I had no chance of easily making it reproducible with several tracks and filter sets (!!)

This demo plays mine and the BBC’s efforts in direct comparison, played 5 times…

I will, though, with pleasure, give some clues as to how I did it.

Concentric circles:

Messed around in SC to give:

added gradient background in SC:

Keyframed frame-by frame in SC…
Text: not Delerium (sorry, @musicalbox), but Moonlite, because there are two versions: solid and outline:

More keyframing and MEGA stress completed the job. An interesting project for me!


Bon, je me suis fait grillé de quelques minutes :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
*Bravo @jonray * :+1: :clap:
Voici le résultat que j’obtiens.
Je ne suis pas très bon dans la sélection des couleurs du dégradé
La police n’est pas tout à fait conforme, mais merci @MusicalBox qui m’a donné des pistes
Je n’ai pas utilisé d’autre logiciel que Shotcut.

Well, I got burned for a few minutes :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
Well done @jonray :+1: :clap:
Here is the result I get.
I’m not very good at selecting gradient colors
The font is not quite compliant, but thanks @MusicalBox who gave me some leads
I didn’t use any software other than Shotcut.


Wow! Congratulations, @namna! Superb. How did you get the precise detail (circular design on the green background)? Your effect is much better than mine … :clap: :clap: :grin:

Wow! Félicitations, @namna! Superbe. Comment avez-vous obtenu le détail précis (dessin circulaire sur fond vert) ? Ton effet est bien meilleur que le mien… :clap: :clap: :grin:

I used “Magic Filter” :wink:


Oh goodness - that is absolutely amazing! This is indeed magical! Congratulations. :clap: :clap:

Also, how did you get the difference between solid and outline text with just a solid font?

Oh mon Dieu - c’est absolument incroyable! C’est vraiment magique ! Toutes nos félicitations. :Clap clap:

De plus, comment avez-vous obtenu la différence entre le texte plein et le texte contour avec juste une police solide ?

Solid text:
Font color: #ffffff | Alpha 255
Outline – Thickness 6 | Color #ffffff

Outlined text:
Font color: #ffffff | Alpha 0
Outline – Thickness 6 | Color #ffffff

Works well with any reasonably bold font.


Ah yes - silly me, I should have realised that… Thanks!! :+1:

I’ve been working on your challenge for about an hour now @jonray
My goal was to get a result as close as possible to the original while using filters on a single clip.
So like I mentioned in a previous post, with that restriction I can’t use graphics in the 2 panels.

Here’s what I got so far:

I have a one problem though.
For 3 of the 11 filters I hade to use Set Filter Start or Set Filter End

These are not saved when you save a Filter Set.
So when I apply (paste) the Filter Set to another clip, it is a problem.
There is a way to go around that, but that will be quite a puzzle…

I also have this variant where I added a Lens Correction filter


@MusicalBox J’utilise très rarement Set Filter Start ou Set Filter End.
A la place j’utilise une image clé type Discret qui n’influe pas sur l’image, puis au moment du départ du filtre, une nouvelle image-clé normale avec les paramètres de départ.

@MusicalBox I very rarely use Set Filter Start or Set Filter End.
Instead I use a Discrete type keyframe which does not affect the image, then when the filter starts, a new normal keyframe with the starting parameters.


Bonne idée @Namna
Ma solution est plus compliquée. Je vais croiser les doigts et espérer que la vôtre fonctionne avec mes filtres.

Good idea @Namna
My solution is more convoluted. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and hope yours works with my filters.

Ça marche @Namna ! Vous m’avez épargné des maux de tête :wink: Merci
It works! You saved me some headaches :slight_smile: Thanks


Je suis impatient de voir comment vous allez organiser tous les filtres nécessaires sur un seul clip.
- Arrivée et le départ des panneaux
- Rétrécissement du texte
- Masquer le corps de la police en ne laissant que le contour et tout ça synchronisé avec les panneaux.

I can’t wait to see how you’ll arrange all the necessary filters on a single clip.

  • Arrival and departure panels
  • Text shrinking
  • Hide the body of the font leaving only the outline and all that synchronized with the panels.
