RedShark News: Premiere Pro Video Transitions 101: A Step-by-Step Guide [sponsored]

This RedShark News blog post is an introduction to transitions in Premiere Pro for beginners. It's also an introduction to RocketStock's Stanza, a video transition pack for Premiere Pro with over 200 transitions. As best I can tell, Stanza's transitions are not effects, they're clips that you can lay over your footage in combination with the Track Matte Key and other effects in Premiere Pro. Cool stuff!

With Premiere Pro, you don’t need to be a seasoned editor to add seamless video transitions to your project. Whether you’re stitching together vacation videos for the first time or putting the final touches on your YouTube debut, it’s easy to achieve a professional look when moving from shot A to shot B. —RedShark News

Rocketstock: Video Codecs and Image Sequences with Alpha Channels

To beginners, "Alpha channel" sounds like a sci-fi term, like some kind of video 4th dimension. Simply put, it's transparency, something that can be seen through. For example, if you have a graphic that you want export and overlay on top of your video, you need to export it in a format that allows everything but the graphic to be transparent. Otherwise your graphic will be surrounded by black video. This Rocketstock blog post by Michael Maher is a quick look at some of the codecs and image formats that support an alpha channel. These formats can be used when exporting out of Premiere Pro or Adobe Media Encoder.

Creating an overlay or title sequence that you want to make sure keeps the alpha channel on export? Here are some of the best video codecs and image sequences that will make layering clips a breeze. —Michael Maher, Rocketstock blog
