In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to create a powerful lens zoom transition between two shots inside After Effects. The transition is perfect for strong action-packed projects, whether for sports, trailers, or montages. We’ll also be designing the transition to be reusable so you can easily reuse the transition again in other projects and keeping it compact.
One suggestion a viewer made was to do a quick crossfade between the two shots during the transition to blend the transition better. As mentioned in the video, the key to this effect is adding layers of detail and complexity. By adding additional camera shakes, chromatic aberration, and other minor tweaks, you can really polish and sell this transition. I encourage you all to experiment and play around with the transition to make it your own.
