Maybe you can see why I call it a “whoof!” transition!!! I’ve seen this transition a lot on TV broadcasts. But does it actually have a proper name?
Anyway, I’m chuffed that I have had success with this technique. To do it, I created a short HTML file with some code that makes use of Elusien’s WebVfx framework, and applied it using the Overlay HTML filter. I’m trying to make a short tutorial to show people how to do this, but I am struggling to find time to finish it. If I do finish it, I’ll post it here.
That’s great, sauron. I’d be very interested to know how you did that.
Footage not mine - I wish it was! . It’s on Youtube - search “DJI Spark Dunnottar Castle” in Youtube and you’ll see the original. I replaced the background music with my own track, which I composed and recorded using Cubase yesterday.
I put two clips on V1. Put a 15 frame white color clip between them. Created a 7 frame dissolve between the color clip and clip A. Then created a 7 frame dissolve between clip B and the color clip, left a 1 frame white piece between the two dissolves.
I used two coloured (pink) clips on V3, each 8 frames long, and used them as markers each side of the transition point (note: I made V3 invisible (I clicked the eye icon). Then I split the main clip in two places at each side of the markers, moved the subclip to V2 (not necessary, just helps me visually), and applied my html filter to it.
I think we used the same “whoosh” clip!!
Thanks again for your reply. I will use your method.
BTW I think this transition could be called a “white flash” transition…
Anyway, here’s my html code if anyone would like to see it…
I Liked the look of this idea and couldn’t resist giving it a go in as cliched a fashion as possible. I used an 11 frame (5 frame transition either side) using sauron’s technique for a speedier effect. Thanks for posting guys - love it!
I’ve seen this type of transition used in Final Cut and Vegas although I don’t know if there is a naming convention for it. It seems to be the inverse of fading through black. Whoof would not be my naming choice though!
