    Part Three - Tips to Add The Most Natural Transitions(Nobody Tells You Before)

    In most cases and for most people, they have this and that transitions to choose from, but only a few people know how to choose a transition and add it properly. Here, we'll give you an answer:

    -"Let the subject in next video drop at a position close to previous subject's position."

    What does it mean? Here's a simple way to explain it:

    How to add a natural transition?

    Let's say we have A & B videos in sequence that need a transition:
    -"A" video tells the story of "A1" subject presented at "Position 1".
    -"B video tells the story of "B1" subject.
    When people watch "A" video, their attention and eyeball are at "Position 1".
    If you want to add a natural transition, ensure "B1" subject is presented at "Position 1", too. So that, people won't have to move their eyeballs to find & watch the next footage - "B".

    Q: Why you should follow above rules to add transitions? A: When you add a video transition and let audience's eyeballs move all of a sudden, they'll feel fatigued somehow. And that makes a bad transition edit.

    Next time when you need a transition, you know how to add a comfortable one.
