A transition that mimics the fast camera “swish pan” movement while blending from one layer to another. Choose from directional options – right, left, up, or down and control the exposure of each layer during the pan.
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 Background color picker lets you choose the background color if you prefer to have the transition between one footage layer and a background.
- Background Opacity fades the background color down to transparent when brought down to 0.
- The Direction drop-down menu can be used to change which direction the transition is panning from into frame: Right, Left, Down, Up.
- The Animation drop-down menu gives multiple choices of interpolation styles for the animation of your transition. The default is 'Ease In Out Cubic'.
- Maximum Blur allows you to set the blur for the layers during the transition.
- The Exposure Boost can help you lighten up the layers if needed, or you can bring the brightness down by adjusting this control down below the default 1.0.
