Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Luma fade, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Better Transitions.
- Sometimes you want to create more of a composite…that animates on and off.…For this you can take advantage of options…like keying or luma keying which will knock out…areas based on their brightness value.…Lets explore how this could be used to create a transition.…When I play this here, you'll notice…that the background disappears…while the birds were left in place…and then fade out.…That's because I essentially did a key.…Now, if you look closely, you'll see…that parts of the bird became see through.…The white on the juvenile eagle's chest…matched the white of the mountains…and that did eventually key out.…
But this creates more of a composite-type image…where parts of the image are overlayed…and then fade.…This is pretty simple and it involves combining…two types of effects.…Let's come down here and work with…this layered transition stack.…I'll grab the razorblade tool here…and simply cut the top clip.…Now, with that clip selected…I could choose to add a key.…From the Effects panel, I'll type in the word luma.…
