- If your lynda.com membership includes it, I've put together a collection of exercise files. Now these are just simple sequences that have a handful of shots together. So really, any footage will work. I've just taken some of the necessary setup steps of getting clips arranged with handles and stacks to speed up the process of teaching you things. So if you have access, it's a quick download. Just pull the footage down and open up the project file and you can follow along. If not, track down some of your own footage, get five or six different shots that you can use, and try to get them in the same format and put them into a timeline.
We will be working with transitions and a few different video layers throughout today. Now I do ask that you respect the copyright on this footage. This is some of my personal footage that I acquired, and I'm sharing it with you so you have footage that's interesting to look at. But please don't use this footage in any of your productions or post it online. All right, get your own files or download the ones I've provided, and let's get started.
- Applying transitions between clips
- Positioning transitions in the Timeline
- Customizing default transitions
- Trimming shots
- Combining effects and transitions
- Creating a blur transition
- Creating and applying custom gradients
- Saving transition presets
- Working with third-party transition plugins like Red Giant and CoreMelt
