That looks pretty cool. Although I can just see me spending an hour or more working on what normally would have taken two seconds to throw on a transition.
Way more control than I would know what to do with. But I can see where is certainly deals with the issues that a lot of people complain about with simple cross-dissolves.
While I seldom use more than just a few Transitions, there have been times, when I needed to go beyond that limited group. On your rec., I picked up Pixelan's SpiceMaster, and it has been perfect for those few forays, beyond Cross-Dissolves, and Dip-to-Blacks. Their support has been fantastic, when I have needed it.
I will explore DissolveMaster.
Nice find, Harm. Thanks.
The plugin works so easy, that even if you were to modify a preset extensively, it will not take you more than a couple of minutes at most, but offers you fantastic creative possibilities. Since having used it for some time, I have changed my editing style a bit. Where I used to just edit butt-to-butt without transitions or the occasional cross dissolve, I now use DM, DissolveMaster, quite regularly and since it is so easy to store your own presets, return to them for a consistent look. Maybe all you need to modify is adjusting the movable handle for the specific shot.
I am sorry, but I didn't get my point across. I never meant to suggest that it would take long to "do". I meant that I would take forever to "decide". I am just as likely to get deeply engrossed in the nuances of the transition than I am to get any real work done. No will power and extremely indecisive. Character faults that lead me to either skip transitions altogether or use something simple and keep going.
The first video had me drooling over my keyboard. Not good for a guy like me. Too dangerous.
