noise fade transitions
noise fade transitions are a set of iMovie transitions that will make a clip disappear into, or appear out of, something that looks like ‘signal noise’ (also called ‘static noise’. pull the antenna cable from your TV set, and you’ll see what that looks like – if your TV is old enough and won’t shut down the picture because of a missing signal).
because of it’s high stylistic use, we’ve added the option to control the color of the static (one-color, two-color, random-color) . this allows for very effective transitions, especially if you
- choose a single, high-contrast color (black, white, red) for the noise
- choose two prominent colors (one from clip 1 and the other from clip 2) and apply as transition. remember that you can pick the color directly from both clips
- use area of effect to blend two similar clips and choose the two noise colors to be from what changes.
this transition fades the first clip to full static, and then fades the static into the second clip.
- fade in:
this transition fades from full static to a clip.
- fade out:
this transition fades a clip to static.
noise 1 / noise 2
these two controls set the color of the noise pixels. the noise will consist of 40% of noise1, and 60% of nosie 2. this requires that noise color is set to ‘left’
when generating noise, you can choose to have all noise to have the same size, or differently-sized chunks.
this controls the severity of the noise at it’s peak (not at the beginning or end of the transition), and how fast it reaches the maximum.
if set to ‘left’ the noise’s color will be determined by noise 1 and noise 2. on the ‘right’ setting all noise pixels are randomly colored.
