Chapter 8. Using Transitions > Keep it simple or motivate

Keep it simple or motivate

Transitions should either be motivated or kept very simple. When I say motivated, I mean a transition that relates to the content of the video or one that moves the viewer from one scene to the next with particular aplomb. This final concept is probably the most difficult to accept, especially if you've been eagerly eyeing Studio's capacious quantity of transitions.

Motivated transitions go a long way toward engaging the audience, and they add a lovely professional touch. For example, in past productions, I've used a snowflake transition between songs at a holiday concert, a golf-tee transition between holes at a golf outing, and a bottle-of-bubbly transition between the wedding ceremony and wedding reception.
