Horizontal flip transition

A type of transition I needed for a project:

To create this transition, follow the instructions bellow:

  1. Insert 2 clips, side by side on the same track.
  2. Split one second from the end of CLIP 1
  3. Split one second from the beginning of CLIP 2
  4. Apply Corner Pin to SPLIT 1 with these parameters:
  5. Apply Corner Pin to SPLIT 2 with these parameters:
  6. Done

If you need a faster transition, just make the SPLITS shorter.

If you want to duplicate the transition elsewhere in the project:

  1. Repeat steps 1 to 3 above.

  2. Copy the filter from SPLIT 1 of the original transition and paste it to SPLIT 1 of the new transition

  3. Copy the filter from SPLIT 2 of the original transition and paste it to SPLIT 2 of the new transition.

It should probably work on any video resolution, aspect ratio and frame rate.
Don’t hesitate to use the comment section if you need additional info.

very nice and worked 100% into shotcut preview but not after export … any idea what to do ?

You’ll need to provide a little more info @ConteudoAnimal
It didn’t work at all after export ? If so, please provide the same screen captures as in the tutorial above (if possible)

Did it kind of work, but not as expected ? If so can you provide a video for us to see ? AND screen captures.

MusicalBox … thank for help

On shotcut worked 100% fine … I exported and posted on youtube

… transition on [7:40] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEneWw06cRs&t=461s and 19:07

I did a preset to use on last sec of first clip and another to second clip … I tried to use into another video and numbers are completed different from original copied from this post :-((((
And I tried again and

I have no idea why this transition works fine in your Shotcut previews but not after you export the project. I did several tests including using different resolutions and aspect ratio and all my exports were perfect. Screen captures, like I asked in my previous answer, would really help us to pinpoint the problem.

Make sure the playhead is on the FIRST frame of the clip before you apply your preset.

Hello,
Thanks.
Nice and clear tutorial.
There is one thing, related to my eyes (with glasses): In the “Corner Pin” filter, could recognize 50% and 30%,
but not sure if there is a 130% or 120% and 70% or 72%.
And after setting the parameters of the filter, can I save both to use them some other time ?
Thanks again.

Yes, save them as a PRESET by clickig on the ‘+’ sign as shown below:

Hi @Motim
Just in case you don’t know: the images are reduced in size on the forum. You can click on each one to see them at 100% size.

If you still have difficulties reading them at 100% here are the parameters shown in the images of step 4 and 5

Parameters of Step 4

Corner 1X   50.00%
       1Y   30.00%

Corner 2X   50.00%
       2Y  -30.00%

Corner 3X   50.00%
       3Y  130.00%

Corner 4X   50.00%
       4Y   70.00%

Parameters of Step 5
