Forget those tacky digital effects. You can improve the apparent quality of your videos by using creative transitions created in the camera. CineTechniques: The Art of the Transition clearly demonstrates imaginative yet simple approaches that videographers can use to create unique and interesting transitions from scene to scene.
Calling on the work of master film directors as a guide, Jim McDearman clearly demonstrates that less is more when it comes to visual transitions for video. In fifteen minutes, this tight, instructional tape depicts a wide range of in-camera transitional techniques. You'll learn how to connect scenes with a walk-off/walk-on, cut on similar objects, cut to/from similar colors, and how to use focus and zoom to create time-tested in-camera transitions. And there's much more. Never dull, this tape demonstrates that less is more in a way that any video producer can appreciate and all can apply.
