Transitions are incredible, you can make anything look interesting if you know how to use them and I’m not talking about the ones in the presets, the ones that I’m gonna teach you are a little bit more complex. You’ll need to plan out your shots with the transition in mind. The one that I’ll show you today is the glitch effect transition and it looks something like this: now let’s jump into premiere, unless you’re completely new to video editing you should be able to follow along just fine. So I’m gonna drag the clip I’ll be working with into the timeline creating a new sequence, this is the part where the plan shots come into play. You’ll need one shot of the background and one shot with the subject in it, and the focus shouldn’t change, it really helps it if you shot it with manual settings and on a tripod. Now you should separate the last ten frames of the background shot since the transition is going to take place there, then take a screenshot of the first frame of the shot with the subject in it. We’re gonna use the screenshot to get a picture of the subject without the background, I’m gonna use Photoshop for that, it’s a pretty easy thing to do so I’m not gonna get into the details but if you don’t have Photoshop don’t worry, I’ll link something in the description where you can do the same thing online and for free. I also went too much into detail here, you don’t have to but it doesn’t hurt it. Now we’re going to put the picture of subject into the timeline on the transition zone. We are gonna apply two effects on it: arithmetic … and wave warp. Now we need to change some settings, starting with setting the wave type into noise, then we’re gonna change the wave width. I like to sit around 600 but you can play around with this one. Now we’re gonna change the direction to zero, so that our distortion is horizontal, and you should set the anti-aliasing to high it shouldn’t affect the performance a lot. Now we’re gonna play a bit with the wave height, this is where the transition is going to start to take shape. You’ll need to animate the setting by pressing the little stopwatch icon next to it. The first keyframe needs to be quite all over the place, so set it to something high, I set it around 250. Now you could set the last keyframe to zero and call it a day but that doesn’t look as good as setting three last keyframes, one zero, one around fifty, and a final zero. The reason this looks better is that it creates the effect of collision, while with only two key frames it looks like it’s snapped together, like a magnet, and that’s just too regular for a glitch. Now the next step is creating three copies of this layer, you can do that by holding alt and dragging the layer up, I like to label these layers red green and blue because we’re going to use them for the RGB split. In the blue layer turn the blue value all the way up, it should max out to 255. Do the same with the green layer and the same with the red layer, with the respective colors of course. Now you should go to the seventh frame of the transition and turn the value of the opacity down to 30, opacity should be animated by default so that should automatically create a keyframe, then you should go to the end of the transition and turn the value of the opacity down to zero. That should keep the opacity of the layer to 30% and fade it out at the end. Do the same thing for the two other layers. At this point you should choose which colors you want to move in the RGB split. I’m gonna move red and green because the whole image is kind of blue, so I’m gonna select the green layer and toggle the animation of the position, then I’ll move the keyframe that is created to the end and change the value of the first number to 720. Now I’m gonna select the red layer toggle the animation again, move the created keyframe to the end again, and change the value of the first number to 1200. At this point you should cut the top four layers frame by frame and delete some of the bits so that the transition flashes irregularly. And don’t forget to leave some random bits. The cherry on top is gonna be the sound effect, you can find plenty on YouTube, just make sure it’s not too loud. And that is it for this transition, my name is Mario I’m also known as MrPleaseBeSerious, click here for another creative transition if you’re into that kind of thing … that’s all for me, PEACE OUT !!
