I love creating interesting transitions for my work. With a mix of effects, you can create all sorts of different interesting ways to shift from one clip to the next. One such transition is what I like to call the RGB bloom transition. This uses the exposure and the RGB spectrum to create a smooth change. Today we go over how to create the RGB Bloom Transition in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
How to Create an RGB Bloom Transition in Adobe Premiere Pro CC
- Put the two clips you want to transition inside the sequence.
- Go up to file->new->adjustment layer.
- Find the adjustment layer in the project panel and drag it into the sequence.
- Trim it down to how long you want the transition to be. I went with 30 frames, or about 1 second long.
- Go to effects->video effects->distort->transform and apply it to the adjustment layer.
- Go to the effect controls of the adjustment layer.
- Uncheck the “uniform scale” option.
- Turn on the keyframe at the very beginning of the adjustment layer. Go all the way to the other end, and set a keyframe here as well.
- Go to the middle and set a keyframe that is slightly larger. I went with 200.
- Go to effects and drag lumetri color onto the adjustment layer.
- Find lumetri color in the effect controls.
- Go down to Color Wheels & Match.
- You will see a toggle key-frame marker here. Turn it on.
- Go to the end of the clip and create a keyframe as well.
- Now go to the middle and bring the wheels to the extremes of Red Green and Blue (You can choose any set of colors for this). I also grabbed the slider next to the wheel to bring up the intensity.
Now you know how to make a fun little transition. This bloom transition really helps to add a little bit of character to your edits.
