How can I blend two video clips where they join side by side in one movie?

Jun 30, 2011 11:19 AM

Hello Marvelous Movie Making Minds,

 

I am working with Adobe Premiere 6 on a Windows 7 machine.

 

How can I blend two video clips where they join side by side in one movie?

 

I know how to place two or more video clips together in the same movie, but how can I give them a bit of a blend just where they join?

 

I have a PDF instruction manual and the built-in web browser instructions.  In the instruction manual in "Chapter 7: Superimposing and Compositing" it talks about the transparency of any video clip, and I understand that... but I don't want to make one or the other video clip transparent anyplace except where the two video clips join together with perhaps a bit of overlap.

 

I'd like to make a little blur just where the two videos join in the middle... is this possible?

 

Thanks,

 

digi

    Blending together is done with transitions.

    The screendump is from Premiere 6.5 but you can see how its applied.

    You can also see how the audio is edited during a transition.

    Aha that kind of blending.

    Have not used 6.5 in a loooooooong time.

    So this is from memory, hope i get this right.

    Set the two clip on top of each other

    Make a matte in Photoshop and superimpose this over the two clips.

    Go to the Transparancy Settings and set the top clip in video 2 to Alpha key.

     

    Screendump for matte:

    The right side is made black just for the forum but should be transparant.
