Create an artistic transition between scenes using this glitch effect in Premiere Pro
Every video creator has to decide how to transition between shots. Without transitions, videos could feel boring or look like a slideshow. Video transitions allow creators to connect scenes in the story narrative, convey moods, and provoke specific emotions for your viewers’ delight.
The glitch, also known as a digital video distortion effect imitates what you see with a digital video camera or a video encoding distortion. It takes what appears to be an error or fault and repurposes it intentionally and artistically to attract and retain viewers’ attention.
It’s a modern art technique that causes glitches on purpose. Contemporary video creators use this sensation of discord or chaos to enhance their content. This compelling visual effect creates an intentional, artistic distortion to transition between scenes.
