How and when to use Simple Slide Transitions
Key content from the use case video
The SIMPLE SLIDE transition is probably the best example of a simple, yet effective video transition. The secret is in the name…Its simple and it’s a slide, meaning you can use the simple slide transition to go from one clip to another by using a gentle slide action. This means the simple slide has several variations including direction of the slide and several bounce styles.
For example, you can use the slide transition between different nature footage that you would typically shoot during a safari tour. This transition allows you to change from one interesting animal or group of animals to another interesting animal or animals and still keep the viewer wanting to see more.
This makes the slide transition one of the easiest transitions to use and fits most editing projects.
Just be sure to obey the basic logic rules. If your footage has a subject moving left to right, then you also want a slide transition that moves in the same left to right direction. If you use a different direction, this creates a disconnect with the viewer.
