Chapter 5. Adding the Right Transition > Using Moving Video Clips to Disguise E...

Using Moving Video Clips to Disguise Edit Points

Let's face it, sometimes the standard transitions get boring, so you look for something new to use as a transition in your video project. Have you thought of using another video source as the transition? It's simple. Use the basic principles of layering video tracks with a combination of animating that clip, and you have a creative new way to transition edit points with either a still video image or a moving video clip. Here's how to set up this example:

1.
Edit your outgoing and incoming video sources onto Video Track 1. These shots will cut from one to another when played.

2.
Add a third video clip (that you plan to use as the transitional shot) onto Video Track 2. This video source can be any still graphic image that you have imported into Premiere or another type of digitized video footage.

3.
Select the clip on Video Track 2.

4.
Click Setup under the Motion effect category in the Effect Controls window. You see the window shown in Figure 5.21.

Figure 5.21. Open the Motion Settings window to customize the movement of your video clip.


5.
The default motion of the video clip sliding from left to right works perfectly. Click OK.
