Hey, hey, HEY! - Success today making transitions (inspired by @sauron ’ s work above) using @Elusien 's Defragmentation feature (part of his WebVfx framework).
So, my demo has 8 images (they are frame captures grabbed using Shotcut, from a video). I called them image01.png, image02.png etc. I copied the “Defragmentation” HTML file 8 times, changing the image of each one to image01.png, image02.png etc…
My folder looked like this:
Then imported the 8 pngs onto 8 video tracks, as shown here:
Then split image01 into two, making the second bit 2 seconds long. Then applied “Defrag image02” to the Overlay HTML filter.
(It took me a while to realise that the HTML file should relate to the clip BELOW, not the clip itself…)
Then repeated the process with image02 - image07, but split these images into 3 bits (beginning transition, middle, end transition).
Finally, image08 was split into 2, and a fade-out applied.
It’s really a doddle to do. I think some users may be daunted by doing this but should have a go…
Grateful thanks to @elusien and @sauron!
