Transitions and Sounds

Transitions ensure that the narrative flows smoothly.  But in order to make everything flow, you have to know what options are out there. Here is a blog that briefly explains and provides examples of the main types of transitions.

Cut: instant change from one shot to the next

Mix / Dissolve / Crossfade: gradual fade from one shot to another

Fade: the shot fades to a single color

Wipe: the first shot is replaced by another, slowly revealing the second scene

Sounds are also a very important part of the editing process.  Here is a website that provides free downloads of music clips and sound effects to enhance your video!
