Editing Technique: The Cut and Dissolve Transition
Video: Editing Transitions
As you can see in the video, there are various transitions you can use in video editing software. The two transitions featured in the video are the dissolve and a cut because they are commonly used for storytelling in a video. The dissolve is a mix of two shots to show a passage of time or location. The cut is where two shots come together at a certain point, creating a continuity in the action. As you’ll see towards the end of the video, Xander’s student film uses the more stylish transitions that causes a lack of continuity in the action and possibly distracts the audience from story.
