Chapter 5. Adding the Right Transition > Using Graphic Images for Transitions

Using Graphic Images for Transitions

The preceding section discussed using a full-frame video source as a transition. What happens if you want to use a smaller image that does not cover the entire screen? This effect uses basically the same principles as just discussed, with only a few more steps. Let's use the example that you see so often on television. You might see a product (beer can, laundry detergent, automobile, or whatever) come wiping across the screen. That is what provides the transition. How this works is that a standard wipe takes effect, with a graphic image sitting on a layer above that follows the same wipe pattern. What you're left with is the effect that this image is wiping your video clips from one scene to another (see Figure 5.23). To set up this effect, use the same procedure as before, but instead of adding a full-frame video clip to Video Track 2, add a graphic image with an alpha channel.

Figure 5.23. Use any image to create the illusion of a transition.
