Plugins are an essential part of speeding up any video editor’s workflow. They can save you time and energy by introducing a drag-and-drop solution without sacrificing quality and customization. In short, they can get you 90% of the way to you need to go in a single mouse click without taking away creativity.
Here at Motion Array, we’re a big fan of plugins, which is why we are so excited to introduce our new Grunge Transitions for Premiere Pro!
Part 1: Check Out the New Grunge Transitions
Now available are 5 different grunge transition styles:
1. Ink Drop
An enjoyably messy transition that brings your next image into the frame as if it were being dripped onto your screen bit by bit. It captures the attention of your audience both with a sudden jolt as well as a slow bleed into the next clip.
2. Paint Splat
Similar to the ink drop, your image transforms in a way that makes you feel like it’s liquid dripping onto the frame. However, this paint splat stands out by eliminating any bleeding and simply dripping aggressively until the canvas is completely covered.
3. Brush Stroke
A sporadic moving texture similar to a paint brush that scribbles away the underlying frame to reveal the new image. Using this transition will make it feel like you’re scratching away your image to find what’s underneath.
4. Ink Cloud
This is the most fluid of the 5 transition styles and draws inspiration from ink moving through water. It brings a pleasing movement from image to image which still retains a bit of chaos and disorder.
5. Paint Roll
This transition literally feels like the frame is being painted over the frame with another piece of footage. Give your videos a sense of progression while still retaining a messy and disorderly vibe.
Each of these styles impacts the transition between your clips in a different messy, grungy way. Not only that, but each style has between 5-6 variations to choose from. We’ll do the math for you, that’s a total of 26 unique transitions within this pack! And that’s not all! Each of these variations is fully customizable within your Premiere Pro interface!
