    How can I make a simple bleach transition in Edius 4.5

  • #2
    Check out Vitascene. Might be what you're looking for. For this kind of stuff it's a good plugin. You can also do it by using the YUV filter along combine effects, but it won't look as good as Vitascene.

      Vitascene is the best way, but you can work through it by experimenting with Blend Filters. The Key-framability of Blend Filters work nicely. It won't be quick, but it's do-able.

        Excuse my question, please. But what is a bleach transition? Is it similar to a fade to and from white?

        thanks

            What is a Bleach Transistion

            I don't know if there is a particular name for it but a Bleach transition is when dark areas in the video get washed out (like a nuke exploding or if you walk from indoor to out door on a sunny day, you can see objects but they are washed out and maybe a bit blurred)

              Bleaching used to be done on film stock by bypassing a certain chemical process. It is still used to this day.

              A bleaching transition usually burns the highs out pushing it towards all white, then a new image which is burnt out already comes in and steadies down to a regular level.

              I personally love the bleach bypass look, and I would use it if I ever shot on film :)

              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bleach_bypass

              Info here

              And a shot from the renowned director Tony Scott and Cinematographer Paul Cameron using bleach bypass on Man on Fire is attached.

              Sorry for going too much into this, just thought people would find this interesting and what bleaching means...

                  Is the bleach transition similar in look to the "shine" transition found in FCP and Vegas? If so I have created a few presets to mimic it and recently found an additional step to the process that makes it even better....just a little more difficult to build. I even created a tutorial for EventDV magazine on how to build the transition.

                  From your description is sounds like the same thing. Just curious.

                    I checked your tutorial. Pretty good, but don't understand how to change the filter to a transition so it can be draged and dropped at the cut points of 2 clips? or do I just leave it as 2 seperate filter for IN and Out?

                      You have to do the filter on both clips. One filter on the outgoing clip and one on the incoming clip. You then put a vapor dissolve to give it a little different look.

                      I have been playing around lately with a new technique but haven't stopped to ponder simplifying it yet. I do exactly like I did with my tutorial and get the out and in keyframed and the transition dropped in as well. I then copy the 2 clips and the transition and duplicate it on a track above the original. Add an Addition keyer (for an additive dissolve type of look) and then use the rubber bands to sync it with the transition on the upper layer. I will pull the rubber bands all the way down so the upper clip is not displaying at all then I will put a nub right where the transitition starts. I will then put a nub right where the 2 clips meet in the transition (the little green line) and drag the nub up to 100% and then another nub at the end of the transition and bring it back down to 0%. It is alot of proccessor intensive stuff going on there but it looks even more like the shine transistion we are used to seeing in other applications.

                      I have to slow down someday and figure out how to make it happen easier and quicker. I know there has to be a way to utilize presets somehow to make it happen. Here is a sample of a timeline where I used it yesterday. Don't know if it will help or not.

                      Here is a screen image. I tried posting it here and it didn't work.

                        The bleach look

                        Try Magic Bullet Looks($399) if you want to bleach your whole project. This is a very cool and simple to use plugin for creating all sorts of film looks. Unfortunately it is not used in Edius but you can use it in host programs like After Effects. Dozens of preset that include bleaching. I've taken Z1 footage and been amazed at the quality and options of this little program.
