Use the Mosaic Effect in Premiere Pro to Create a Pixelated Transition.
In this Premiere Pro tutorial, FilmVentureStudios shows how to use the Mosaic effect as a stylized pixelated transition.
First, duplicate the clips on the next track, and apply the Mosaic effect to the duplicated clips. The reason for duplicating the clips is the Mosaic effect sums the surrounding pixels to create its blocks. The problem is this includes transparency around the edges of the frame. Having the original clip underneath prevents the edges of the image from becoming transparent and appearing black.
Next, increase the Horizontal and Vertical Block amounts of the Mosaic effect so the clip returns to its normal-looking state. Add keyframes at the end of the outgoing clip so that the Mosaic blocks animate on. This makes it look like the video is pixelating. Watch and learn below at 0:17.
FilmVentureStudios shows how to save the effect as a preset to make it easier next time you want to use the pixelate transition.
With it saved as a preset, she applies the pixelated transition to the incoming clip, and manually reverses the keyframes. (If you wanted, you could save this a preset as well, so your transition would have two presets: Pixelate IN and Pixelate OUT.) Watch below at 1:46.
FilmVentureStudios also demonstrates a specific technique of applying the pixelated transition to a masked area in her shot. In her example, she masks out her subject so that the subject alone pixelates in. This technique could be applied to anything in your shots to create visual interest, and draw the attention of the viewer. Watch below at 2:47.
