  • Trasitions free no work!!!!!!


    Hi, I found this tutorial and I downloaded the free, unpacked and set transitions on ediusx, but I can't get them to work, I don't understand how he does it in the tutorial.
    I place a transition on top of a video clip in the timeline but it doesn't work as it should, I saw that he has put something in the timeline on a higher track, but what? and where did he find it?
    Can anyone help me?
    thanks.

    Based on that video, the upper track 3 is a video in the track with a track matte effect in the mix portion of the clip. This essentially blends the upper track 3 with the transitions in track 2, allowing the transition to then reveal track 1

      The best transitions are no transitions but well timed cuts and the occasional dissolve to indicate a change in time

      I nearly threw up when watching that video

        Anton, I'd have to agree for the most part. Cut's and dissolves are what I use 99% of the time or more. The exception might be something different on a title or lower third where I might either wipe it in/out or push it in/out, but even that depends on the project and is not a given.

        Watch a good movie or TV show and see how many times something else is used. Almost never. A good edit does not have to use eye candy to tell a story. A good edit should be almost invisible to the viewer, so they can get engaged in the story without distraction.

          Totally agree - well, maybe not totally! In my travelogues I use simple dissolves between most scenes to visually "smooth out" the sights and happenings from one location and scene to the next. Nothing fancy, just dissolves from one to the other - mostly 1 sec. long, but 1 1/2 sec dissolves between the many art museum artifacts and artworks. Along with the classical music accompaniment it makes for a visual and aural smoothness. Except if the scene or scenes are contiguous, then a simple cut is best. Many might argue this point, as Anton points out above, but that's what makes horse races. Anton, I do hope I didn't make you throw up. It's so very messy!

            Sorry, I'll just throw all those transitions in the trash.
            thanks.

              Thanks for your advice, but I'll throw them in the bin.

                I wouldn't do away with all of them. Go through and pick out 'tasteful' transitions. Tasteful will be defined differently in each country.
                Save these for title/lower third entry and exit animations.

                Less is more.

                  Jerry does raise a valid point. Things like those transitions can indeed have their uses, but sparse and tasteful use is the key. As I said, I tend to reserve things like those, or page turns and other things besides cuts and dissolves for titles, lower thirds, opening title sequences, etc., and even then, only if the edit requires those things to be more lively. The don't generally get used for transitions in the main content, as they can tend to detract from the story or break the concentration and engagement of the viewer.

                  I have quite a few things like it in my tool box, but they are tools that are not pulled out often.

                  I don't profess to be a world class editor, but I grew up in a household where my father did production and introduced me to linear editing 40 years ago. I have also been a system builder, seller, repair and trainer of various NLE systems and currently work at a post production house. The one thing I have taken away from the last 40 years of doing this, is that usually a junior or novice editor that wants to edit and enjoys editing will tend to rely on the eye candy initially, but as they become more comfortable with their tools and their skill to tell a story without these kinds of things, the use of them will often lessen. You don't have to throw these tools out, just learn when to use them and when not to use them, and above all, continue to develop your skill so that you don't have to rely on them to keep your story visually eye catching.

                  I think the biggest driver that makes a more novice editor want to use these things is that they tend to leave their shots on screen too long with very little visual content that moves the story along. Try to keep your edits from lingering on things that don't move the story, and cuts and dissolves will suffice 99% of the time.
