Avid Screencast #31: Curtain Transition

NOTE: I had to trim this video down because of Youtube length limitations. See the full episode at

This week’s episode features a request from Youtube user Instantslugger, who wanted to know how to do a curtain transition within Media Composer.

Turns out it’s not that hard. We’ll do it using Avid’s Paint effect and a Matte Key, plus (not in the Youtube video, but on the podcast/website) I’ll show you how to make the transition reusable and real-time.
