Filmora Dissolve | Effects & Transitions

Dissolves are one of the most well-known
cinematic transitions. It’s the ability to slowly transition from one image into another and I’m going to show you how you can do them in Filmora Let’s open up filmora and work with a few pieces of video that i shot on my phone at the beach. Hit the subscribe button and click the notification bell to be part of the conversation. This is just a simple clip of some grass on the dunes that I figured I might be able to use as B-roll footage somewhere. First off, let’s drag this into our timeline and find a piece of it to use. Okay, here’s a section with a simple pan from left to right. That looks cool. Let’s isolate that, cut it and eliminate the other sections we won’t be using. We talked about how to do all of these steps in the last video So if you missed any of that or need to review it, I’ll put a link to it right now in the upper
right hand corner. Now, let’s take a look at our footage. It’s pretty basic. Nothing special to see here but with a little video editing… we can make this shot into something much more cinematic than something I recorded on my phone at the beach. Looking at this… I’d actually like this better if it was slowed down a bit. Here’s a quick bonus lesson. Click on the video portion and it’ll open up an editing window in the upper left . There’s a lot that we can do with our video clip here and I’ll dig deeper into that in the future but for now… Let’s just adjust the speed of the clip by dragging this slider to the left. You can see in the value window over on the right A value of “1.00” would indicate the clip is playing at the speed it was recorded at. If I moved it up to “2.00”, it would play
twice the speed and so on. But I want to slow it down to about half the speed which would be “0.5” We can actually do this by typing “0.5” in the value window or by using the up and down arrows next to it as well. Though, those are really more for fine-tuning the speed. So now I’ve reduced the clip to half let’s hit OK and, as always whenever you tell the software to do something to your footage make sure you render the project if the arrow is green so that the playback is smooth. Now let’s do something really cool. Back in the media tab where we imported our footage if you look to the upper left It says “My album” which shows us whatever we brought in for video images or audio to use on this project But below it, see where it says “Sample colors”? Click on that and it opens up some different color images that we can use in our video project Let’s grab the white and drag it down to our timeline It has a preset length to the color clip that you can either shorten or make longer. This is probably longer than we need it, so let’s shorten it up a bit. We can right click on it copy then bring our playhead back to the beginning of our timeline right-click and hit “paste”. Most of you are familiar with how to to copy and paste and that’s exactly how Filmora treats video clips. If you want to duplicate anything in your timeline. So now in our timeline we have a white clip our slowed-down clip of the grass and the dunes and another white clip at the end. Now let’s move over to our tabs and you’ll see there’s a lot of things that we can add to our video project but let’s just focus on the transitions tab. Look how many different transitions Fillmora gives you with your subscription. Tons. Lots of really good ones too. And they all be applied exactly the same way as the dissolve transition I’m about to show you. So once you’ve learned how to do a dissolve you can experiment with any of those other really cool transition effects. Let’s grab the dissolve transition and drag it down to our timeline. You want to put it right onto your video track. For a standard dissolve between two video elements you want to drop it right where the two clips meet It kind of looks like a band-aid, doesn’t it? We can grab the edges of this “band-aid” and drag them either inwards or outwards to lengthen or shorten how long we want our dissolve to be. In this case, I want the white screen to start dissolving into the video clip right off the bat. So I’ll stretch it all the way across We also want to add the same dissolve to
the end of our video So let’s repeat that same process on the back end Now let’s quickly render our project so our dissolve effect will play smoothly and let’s see what we’ve got. Look at that A perfect dissolve in… and a perfect dissolve out. With a little tweaking and adding of a music track Filmora can actually get this simple phone footage to start looking like something pretty cool. I’ll be talking about exactly how to do those steps too but do me a favor Hit the subscribe button and the notification bell and I promise you we’ll continue this conversation. Ahhh… crap. I’m dissolving. Peace!

    Sir an honest request is Pls tell us how to download filmora 9 free packs and which is best
    Thnk yew

  20. Emon Samsami July 24, 2019 at 4:10 pm

    does anyone know how to do the effect on filmora 9 where it does a circle focal point focus and have that circle stay in color but the rest of the video goes dark or black? kind of like when they show you surveillance footage of a police show. for example, say you have multiple people in one shot but you want to identify and show the focus on one particular person and either blur out or blackout the rest of the people in the video/image as to not confuse the viewer.

  21. Leigh Haggar July 25, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    I currently have Filmora 9 on a Mac, will this tutorial work with that version? Thanks.

  22. Snowwie July 26, 2019 at 4:42 pm

    Nice video man, I really like Filmora myself too, even using it for ALL my video's on my channel as well. One big con of Filmora is it's compression ability. In some occasions, I use a lot of still imagery and normally this kind of 'video' is highly compressible without loss of quality. Filmora sadly does not see that. So I make the video, let's say a collage of photo's, like 100 photo's, and Filmora makes a video of that of like 800MB. Then I take Handbrake, which can slow down the video to 5fps (why do you need fps with photo's anyway) and set the compression level to high. This will barely affect the photo's, and finally give you a video of 20 or 30MB. And it would have been nice if Filmora had a uncompressed raw output video format, thus making the video without actually compressing it. In this way you keep as much quality and do the real compression with Handbrake. To sort of overcome this situation I select the highest quality possible in Filmora (For 4K video 80Mbit/s) and just the aac audio codec. But still, this takes a long time to encode. Nevertheless, Filmora is a very friendly program which does not need a real manual. Most things are clear from the start. Also I have to state out, that Filmora has sometimes issues with very large uncompressed raw video's (I have tried that, with video capturing 4K uncompressed, which writes video data at nearly 1GB/s), and the end file (700-900GB or even 1TB) is not handled well in Filmora. Also my 1TB ssd's in raid 0 don't like it either.. 😛

  28. Maui Travel Videos August 3, 2019 at 11:17 pm

    Really Nice Video. I like your "short & sweet" videos that just focus on ONE thing. I hate videos that offer "15 Things To ….. ". I can't remember them all. Keep It Up!!

  29. Maui Travel Videos August 3, 2019 at 11:19 pm

    SUGGESTION. I rewind a zillion times to write down THE STEPS. Could you put the actual step-by-step in a written format. Put them out for sale — I don't care. I just often need the written steps so I can refer to your instructions. Mahalo. (does Youtube count my 13 views as "13" or just one?)

    Hi Daniel, I keep following your videos because I've learned a lot. I have a question, I saw some videos about fitness wherein the muscles from that video shows a color red highlights. Is it possible we can do it in filmora 9? I hope you get what I mean😁

  46. Peter Halbig September 20, 2019 at 12:37 pm

    Unfortunately, I'm too stupid to paste text into an existing video.

    if I click on the OK button, unfortunately nothing happens.

    I also miss a text track.
