CRUMPLEPOP FILM TRANSITION
A transition tool featuring retro film countdown-style film leaders and test strips, scanned from archival film stock.
Getting Started in a timeline
- Dragging the transition over your edit in the timeline, drop it at the end or beginning of a clip, or in between two clips.
- Modify the Duration either by entering a length in the field, or dragging directly in the timeline.
- You can choose the Alignment (Center at Cut, Start at Cut, End at Cut, Custom Start) either by positioning the transition in the timeline, or by choosing from the Alignment drop-down in some host applications.
Getting Started in a compositor
- Apply the transition to the layer you want to transition from.
- Choose the footage layer you would like to transition to in the Transition B drop-down menu. (Note for Motion users: drag the footage layer up to the Transition B box).
- Animate your transition using the Mix slider from 0-100%. Set a keyframe for 0% where the transition should start, then set another at 100% for the end.
Modify the Transition
- The Film Clip drop-down allows you to select from 11 presets of archival film transfers to set the tone and look of your transition.
- Chose from the Blend Mode drop-down to select the blending mode used to composite the film transition over the original image.
- Set the Opacity control to a number lower than 100.00 to make the film texture overlay more transparent.
- With the default set to 0, bringing the Brightness slider towards 2.0 will lighten the overall look of the selected film clip as it transitions.
- Use the Saturation slider to increase the color intensity within the frame during the transition.
- The Aspect Ratio drop-down sets the aspect ratio of your frame.
- The 16:9 setting will generally match up with your original HD video aspect ratio and will give you the full image within the frame.
- The 4:3 option crops the image into the look of older television and “academy” footage. You will lose the sides of your image, so be aware of the compositional changes when making this choice.
- Scale can make the Film Clip up to 75% smaller, or can be raised up to 125.0 to fill more of the screen if needed.
- Position allows you to move the Film Clip overlay in the X or Y space of the image.
- Flip allows you to change the position of the lens flare transition within the frame. Chose from Horizontal, Vertical, or Both to place the transition where you need it.
