Can anyone identify this transition effect?

Hi all...

I've seen this really simple but cool transition effect af few times but is seems to be used a lot on the BBC News 'Click' program. You can see this by following the link below and clicking the 'Watch Now' button.

BBC NEWS | Programmes | Click

You can see a high quality version at the iPlayer by following the clip below (this link will only work for 7 days though)

BBC iPlayer - Click: 10/01/2009

It's fairly simple in that it sort of blooms all the whites in the 'A' clip to white and then does the reverse into the 'B' clip. I use Premiere Pro and it's a little like the additive dissolve but much more intense.

Thanks in advance

Pete

I'm curious about this myself. I know the effect is a glow that's available in MBL and Boris but I've not kitted it up as a transition. I think it's a bit overused lately.

As an aside, I really liked the little PackMan graphic in the report. Don't think the US networks would ever do something like this.

Sony Vegas also has this in the dissolve section of its transition effects using the "Additive Dissolve" preset. I think you can get the intensity of the BBC version by pushing the levels up during the dissolve.

god if i earnt a pound/dollar for everytime i see this asked....

blow out the whites (with PPro levels), and add blur and saturation accordingly

OR if you want to cheat:

- (PPro) New Blue Art Blends (Transitions) - 'Shiny Fog' (Glow preset) - www.newbluefx.com/art-blends-2.html
- (AE) Bloom transition - www.videocopilot.net/presets/bloom_transition/

Peter, all those mentioned are plug-ins. Another one is Vitascene from ProDAD

proDAD - Vitascene -- Video Effects And Transitions which now comes with Edius 5.

Like any effect use sparingly.

Thanks folks

Thanks everyone - A combination of Premiere's additive dissolve and keyframed levels and blur works a treat - I'll only use it for a couple of sequences I've got in mind so I probably won't buy a plugin. Plus I think I can achieve the same using my Matrox plugins so I won't need to render.

I'll tell you exactly what it is. Its FX Factory Pro 2 Glow Dissolve, by Idustrial revolution.(Noise Industries)

Fantastic set of plugin filters for the mac, but not cheap. BBC have been using these for a few months.

Glow Dissolve

Unfortunately the 140 filters cost 269 or $399.

and for those on FCP

If anyone else needs this for FCP, check out Eureka's free filters. It's called Vapor Across.
