Top 35 Video Transitions That Will Move Your Audience

When it comes to basic video transitions, NLEs like Adobe Premiere or Avid Media Composer ship with a palette of basic run-of-the-mill wipes, fades and dissolves. But when you need something special, like a zoom blur, roll or twist, you’re on your own.

That’s why we created NewBlue Transitions 3 Ultimate.

For more light-hearted videos, use Cartoonr Plus or Neon Lights to give your audience a unique color-contrasting video transition.

And like all NewBlueFX plugins, Transitions are compatible with Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, Black Magic Da Vinci Resolve, Grass Valley Edius, Sony Vegas and other professional NLEs.
