What I am trying to do is figure out the best way to transition from one shot to the next. I have this footage showing a guy handing a shirt off screen and in a different shot someone is grabbing the shirt off screen and then puts the shirt on. Does anyone know the best way to make this transition look smooth and real?
I worked on a promotional project for a university and part of our marketing package involved a video of various students, professors, and other people from the university tossing one of the university's shirts to one another. So a football player on the field would grab it, say something, and toss it; then a chef in the cafeteria would catch it, say something, then toss it; and a girl in her dorm room would catch it...etc. It was done with simple cuts in Avid. (Could also be done in Premiere Pro, Final Cut, Vegas, Windows Movie Maker...)
