I know that at least some of you here are really into video editing; I need a whoosh transition, like the one they use in MITM, anyone know where I could find one of those? Preferably for Adobe Premeire or Pinnacle Studio.

Thanks

The swoosh is a extremly tiny clip of a camera movement moving across Malcolm's living room, what they do is film it in extremly high frames per second is the easiest way to do it.

It works very well because of the sound effect that occurs during the "swoosh".

Oh, interesting. Thanks. Is it always Malcolm's living room, or do they have several they alternate through?

Its extremly fast that the eye cant even really catch it, the sound effect is the key to the transition so if you blink you can hear the transition.

There is a transition in season one but its nothing anyone can decipher, could be the living room infront of the couch or the set.

But all you really need to know that its mostly just ETC footage, non usable footage and since the transition is only a few frames and blured nobody can decipher what it is.

Thanks for the pics. I always wondered how they did that.

Glad to inform you, yardgames.
