Smaro Papaevangelou"Fake" one-shot: transition between two sheets

Hello dear CreativeCowers,

I searched the forum for something relevant before posting but i didn't know exactly what to look for so I decided to post my questions:

I am currently working on a video that is supposed to look like a continuous shot. The footage consists of tracking shots that usually end up to a dark surface and start from a dark-black surface. In this case the simple cut as well as the dissolve works and it looks as if the whole thing was shot continuously.

However there's also a transition I have to make between two white sheets that are a bit different. When I use a dissolve, it doesn't look good, it looks FAR from an invisible edit! Any suggestions for other types of transition? Should I use a morphing technique?

I am editing in Final Cut Pro, but I am posting this here because After Effects is the way to go in this case I guess.

You could try a combination of one of the blur effects with a dissolve and see how that looks.

cheers

Do the sheets have the same color balance and brightness or is the cut only visible because the folds/shadows in the sheet are different?

Can you post the transition as it is now? Might be able to give more feedback if we see it.

[Smaro Papaevangelou] "...there's also a transition I have to make between two white sheets that are a bit different."

How are they different? Were the two shots white-balanced differently, so they're a different shade of white? Color Finesse or Colorista could fix that.

Beyond that, it's difficult to give advice because we can't see the shots.

Thank you everyone, I eventually managed to do it using a combination of color correction and blur effects.
