Making custom transitions in After Effects and PP

May 2, 2012 8:22 PM

About the only thing I really like about FCPX, is the ability to make custom transitions and astons in Motion which integrate perfectly with FCPX.  Making them is tricky but changing them is easy, and I can send these custom graphic elements to other editors to use.  Can you do the same with After Effects and PP?

    Best way to make custom transition that is both quick and creative is with the Boris Red 5.0.

    I suggest you stay with FCP X if it is fulfilling your need for a  desired type of transitions.

    Man, getting a free Aston Martin with the $300 FCPX is enough to make me consider dumping Windows.

    After Effects has a huge community and there are many After Effects templates available for various looks.  These are full After Effects projects, so the integration is very deep.  They can be tweaked in AE and then brought directly into Premiere Pro to edit into the rest of a project.  Try searching Google for 'after effects templates'.

    ZAC-"After Effects has a huge community and there are many After Effects templates available for various looks"

     

     

    These are not templates that function in the same manner that FCP templates did.

     

    In FCP they could be actively tweeked in the NLE.

     

    In PrP, you basically need to make or buy a project file and bring it into PrP as a dynamic link. I love working with AE dynamic links, but by definition they are not really the same thing as a template in FCP.

     

    But maybe this is OK with the OP and will address his needs.

    Agreed, the AE project doesn't expose a subset of parameters for tweaking directly in PPro.  But if we're really talking about using both AE and PPro to create looks using templates, then After Effects templates are very powerful and worth looking into.

    Agreed.
