Show/Hide Embed Code

This week’s episode features a request from Youtube user Instantslugger, who wanted to know how to do a curtain transition within Media Composer.

Turns out it’s not that hard. We’ll do it using Avid’s Paint effect and a Matte Key, plus I’ll show you how to make the transition reusable and real-time.
