What do you call this kind of dissolve?

Theres a cross dissolve, additive and non-additive dissolve. What do you call the dissolve that expanded the white/bright on the video before it dissolves? I always saw this in wedding videos, I think my premiere pro 1.5 dont have this kind of dissolve, Is there a plug-in for that kind of transition?

Juan, i'm not sure about PP but in FCP i would add a brightness filter and just keyframe the last couple of frames so the image ramps up to pure white then on the next clip do the same except at the start of the clip so it ramps down from pure white. If you wanted you could add an additive dessolve but you don't really need to.

Hope you understand what I mean.

Andy.

Key-Framed Filter and Dissolve?

Juan,

You and I have the same question. I've seen this same dissolve and wondered how it's done too. Very cool look, isn't it?

I tried replicating it with Final Cut Express 3.5 and came pretty close by combining a glow filter (Joe's Color Glow) with a dissolve. I key-framed the filter over 1-2 seconds to build from nothing to full "washed-out" glow on the outgoing clip and just the opposite on the incoming clip. Then I added a brief cross dissolve.

It's not quite the same look, so I'd be curious to know the answer to your question too.

its called a flash dissolve using either a colour, or the luminance of both frames as an average centre

In vegas its called flash transition.. in other aps, you can emulate it by dissolving using additive dissolve into a white PNG (or any other still image), then immediately doing the same back from the PNG to your next video clip
the length of your image will determine the length of the transition

THing with the vegas transition, is that u can set the diffusion, whereas you cant do that with an additive dissolve

u can change the colour of your png to whatever suits the clour of the flash

In final cut pro there is the flash transition, chroma transition, and vapor cross which are all very similiar. Plus many filters you can keyframe to do something similiar.

In FCP, you can try the Dip to Color dissolve and set the dissolve color to white (the default is black).

it's really very simple in Premiere Pro (1.5 or 2)...just use the brightness element of the procamp, which takes brightness beyond 100%. (It is completely different to dissolving to white as others have suggested)

Throw in some blur too for extra effect!

It's SOOO overused at the moment (every film, every advert, every documentary)...but still looks great, and I always do it!

I think the flash transitions are not actually stock, but you can download freebie transitions from lots of sites. Some such flash transitions differ from the cleaner white dissolve by involving a very quick 'burn' factor to their parameters to give it a distinctive type of appearance.

All the previously detailed methods also work with varying degrees of efficiency.

The stock "dip to color" might be the easiest, you just have to change the default black color to white (or whatever you want).

In Premiere Pro, I just animate the leves to all white then another back from all white. I set them as presets and use them as required. I like it because it blows out the whites first. I have not tried using the ProcAmp. I might have to try that sometime.

What he said. You could also blow out the brightness prior to the clip ending to give it an extra effect.

You mean the "Six Feet Under" dissolve?
