As always, don’t forget to like, Subscribe and share this video across your social channels.

In this lesson, we’re going to start the first of a two part discussion about basic effects in your timeline, and there’s not better effect to start with then the transition.

Whether it’s a Dissolve or Wipe, you’ll be definitely using transitions as part of your workflow. Now, most people think “Oh wow, a dissolve”, but there’s much more that goes into the dissolve than most people think. Are you doing a dip to color dissolve?

How about a flash to white dissolve? What about a film fade/dissolve? All of this, plus we’ll get in and show you how to manually adjust your transitions, so you can get exactly the look you want. Enjoy!
