Today you will learn technical vocabulary in video. You will learn how to ask the editors to integrate effects when writing your brief.
A video transition is a technique used during the video post-production process in which separate shots or scenes are combined to present a cohesive whole. A video transition is simply a join between two separate clips.
Glossary on transitions
Cut: it is the clear and instantaneous passage between two planes. We generally go from one shot to another by means of a straight articulation without optical effects. This is the most used transition between two shots.
Reframing: consists of cropping inside the original image, a portion of this image to make it correspond to the proportions of the screen on which it is displayed. It is similar to a zoom effect.
Crossfading: we go from image A to an image B. A gradually disappears. At the same time, B appears while A has not yet left the screen. So that, for a moment, A and B are superimposed: there is a brief superimposition of the two images during a change of plan.
Fading to white: progressive brightening of the image to full white.
Sliding: Transition effect allowing to go from plan A to a plan B.
II. Editing effects
Video effects are edits that you will give EasyMovie editors to make your video more dynamic.
Glossary of editing effects
Split screen: an effect consisting of dividing the screen into several parts, each of these parts presenting different images: several different scenes, or several different perspectives of the same scene.
Timelapse: is to speed up the rendering of your rush
Stop motion: is an animation technique. The concept is simple, photos are taken one after the other to then constitute a film by putting them end to end.
Integrating pictures: designates an image inserted during the edit to draw the viewer's attention to a detail necessary to understand the action.
Freeze frame: or freezing the image, is a process to highlight an action.
