Working with transitions in Creative Cloud.
If you want a type of transition you don’t see in an Adobe video editor, don’t worry — there’s a plug-in for that. The Adobe Video Partner Finder can help you find plug-ins that have been vetted for use with Adobe apps. Video effects like glitch transitions, liquid transitions, and seamless transitions will all come from plug-ins.
You can also make transitions in Adobe After Effects and Photoshop and bring them into your Premiere Pro workflow. If you don’t have any footage of your own, check out Adobe Stock to download high-quality stock video and get some practice in.
Tips to get the most out of your transitions.
Don’t go overboard.
As fun as they are, too many transitions can be distracting and cause your video to look amateurish. It’s best to stick with a few well-placed transitions than to crowd your video with too many effects.
Keep your transitions consistent.
Too many different transitions can make your video seem unevenly paced and erratic. Pick a few types of transitions to rotate between and you’ll establish a consistent flow your audience will get used to.
Use them where appropriate.
Think about how your transition serves your story. A transition that marks a new chapter or phase of the film, such as an intro or outro, will be more expected than a transition between two clips in the same scene. Your transitions should be a storytelling device, not a way to simply fill space or add flashy effects.
