[NOTE: I just copy-pasted this tutorial I wrote on another forum almost a year ago, but I thought it'd be useful for everyone. If there's anything I should add, tell me about it!]
Well well well.
Out of extreme stress due to school and my oh so very convincing will to study, I come to you with a guide for transitions!
No but really, I thought about doing this for a while.
I know how hard it is for MEP hosts to make transitions that are good looking enough so the editor's efforts aren't going to waste and I found out quite a few ways to make it easier to transition two tracks.
There are 3 ways I work with when it comes to making transitions. Just so it doesn't take up too much space on the screen, I put them under spoiler tags.Note:
I won't talk about the actual transition coordinating or how you edit your track according to the previous track, but only the technical side since it's the only thing the host will have to care about once he gets the tracks.
- Trick #1: markers.:
- Trick #2: chroma keying.:
- Trick #3: alpha channeling:
I hope this post was anyhow useful and if there's any question, don't hesitate to ask!
