Smooth transition between edited clips?
on Jun 26, 2013 at 5:30:08 pm

Hi, is there a good way to smooth the transition between clips that have been edited. For example, an interview session where the subject and background are the same but I want to use only parts of the video interview so I cut sections out - but when you play the final edited version you can tell that the clip has been cut. Anyway to correct or minimize that (I have a lot of them)? Suggestions for transitions? Thanks.

Presuming you don't have broll available to cover the cuts and disguise that you made them, there are a couple of techniques editors tend to use to smooth the jarring nature of jumpcuts.

You can you a short (3-6 frame) white flash between clips. This is used a lot in news. It shows that you made a cut in the audio and aren't trying to hide it, but the white flash also keeps the jump cut from being jarring.

Another thing you can do is resize one shot so that it looks like another camera shooting in CU. This works best in HD where you have a little more play in the quality of the footage, but the resized image will be a little softer. No way to avoid that.

When in doubt, Charlie out.
