I use to edit for a producer who claimed he hadn't even used a dissolve in years,
And he was doing high end projects.
Transitions aren't a substitute for good filmmaking.
And when I see an amateur youtube video with
A flashy opening or graphics just makes the video seem
Somehow lesser than a more tasteful but artfully done piece.
That being said I recently did a spoof reality show where I used
A blur dissolve from red giant.
Well, I'm one of those lame amateur YouTube Minecraft players. But hey, we all have to start somewhere. Currently, I only use transitions when... well, when transitioning between major recording scenes/thoughts. Otherwise, I just jump cut - but because it's a screen capture with narration, it's usually pretty easy to make it fairly seamless. When I do transition, I just do a simple swipe.
I'm eager to learn more and better myself, though. I'm working on unifying my channel art and video style and had an idea to do the same with the transitions, but from what you say, it sounds like what I'm doing is best already. I'm not a fan of overproducing mediocre content either. Simple is best. So maybe I lost my way. Haha.
With all that unnecessary information out of the way, I've done more research since making this thread and it appears the After Effects transitions and motion graphics I've found aren't exactly compatible with Resolve and the workarounds aren't worth the time invested for these projects. But it makes me wonder if there's a Blackmagic equivalent to AE. For future reference, is there an effects program like AE that's friendly with Resolve?
