tutvid: How to Create an Action Movie Style Transition in Premiere Pro

Get crazy with the Linear Wipe and Track Matte Key effects in Premiere Pro. Nathaniel Dodson of tutvid shows how to create a stylish wipe transition to reveal your incoming footage. The technique is simple to follow, and the great thing is how customizable this effect can be. Nathaniel begins with a demonstration of the Linear Wipe effect at 2:12. Then, at 4:26 he uses the Title Designer to create a shape or "matte" that covers half of the frame. At 5:43 Nathaniel nests his Title matte and applies the Linear Wipe effect inside the nested sequence. Finally, at 9:53 learn how to use the Track Matte Key effect on the animated Title matte to reveal your next shot. Here's a tip: export your Title matte so it can be used as a template in other Premiere Pro projects.

In this Premiere Pro tutorial, we’ll talk about creating a custom double swipe transition that would typically be used in the intro or transition scenes in an action based film or TV show. We’ll cover working with multiple animated masks and linear wipes to create a custom angled transition that will uncover video one part at a time. —tutvid
