Title: Moving Through Compartments
Post by: Darryl W on July 02, 2019, 10:09:09 PM
As I move from compartment to compartment ( steering -> auxillary -> main machine room etc ) via doors or hatches Im just wondering if its gunna look crappy if I use transition images with popup text that tells the user/viewer that they are now entering another compartment of an internal space, ( say when the camera goes from a specific location to a new location )??
see the attached image

The transition image is most likely gunna be text on a suitable background, the primary purpose is to allow me to stop and start the rendering at particular points so that I can then render the new section as distinct from the previous section ( read compartment ).

Still got more work todo and to buy a new pc for rendering.

What are you using for video editing software?  Almost all of them allow you to cross-fade during a transition.  Make that transition slow (and maybe out of focus) and put the text over it.

Movavi v16 sstill dont know if its good enough yet as Ive so little with it. Crossfade seems like the most logical answer.

Daz,

there are so many ways to do this, which are effective.
As long as you don't overdo the effects, they can be very helpful.
Movie Maker, comes free with Windows, and has many such transitions.
Take a look, it maybe all you need.

Regards Tim

It may struggle with very large files, but worth a try.
It's a basic video editing program but is fairly easy for beginners.   ;)
