I recently interviewed a subject where he was the only one on camera (I just let him talk) and ended up recording over 30 minutes of very good material. My question concerns editing that interview. In post there are a number of places in the interview where I would end his discussion of one subject and then go to another. I would usually insert a fade for the transition but on 2 or 3 occasions I inserted some b-roll or a picture. I prefer the fade but I'm wondering if there is a better way? What is the best way to cover the transition created by the edit? Thanks
I'm using Sony Vegas Pro 11 and I have a problem when I insert a transition between videos: not always the transition is applied on both videos, and most time the transition is applied just on one of the two videos. I had a similar problem with Sony Vegas Pro 10, and I never was able to find a solution.
The transition I'm trying to apply is called "Sony Cross effect" --> "Default" and/or "Slow cross zoom A/B". I just simply drag the effect to the junction of both videos, and when the effect's window is open I select "blur" and "both [sides]".
Is it possible in Premiere CS4 to edit the interpolation of a transition's completion (as it is possible with Vegas since version 8) ? In other words, can I make a "Slide" effect with ease-in/ease-out ?
