Top 10 drone transition shots for stunning aerial shots

19 March 2021 by Adrienn Kerekes 0 Comments

Discover ten simple drone transition shots that you can use today to transform your aerial shots. Whether you're a beginner in drone editing or a seasoned pro, we've collected ten transition tips for you that can easily help you create cinematic content. The following techniques can be easily implemented in traditional video editors.

1. Direct cutting
A direct cut refers to an immediate transition between two scenes. This recording is the simplest and most common transition recording, which you can improve by coordinating the movements and the rhythm of the background music.

2. Change of distance
Combine close-ups with wide-angle panoramas to create an exciting transition. This type of drone transition shot brings a new perspective to your storytelling, and is especially effective when connecting scenes shot from the ground and from the air.

3. Invisible cut
An invisible cut is a very cool transition shot that combines two shots with similar frames. The camera lens zooms in on an object that obscures the scene, and then the frame transitions to another scene. The beauty of this shot is that it adds creative continuity to your storytelling, which is especially useful for fast-paced action scenes.

4. Follow-up recording
Tracking simply always keeps your subject in the center of the frame. This is a simple drone transition that you can use to show the passage of time or the path of your subject.

5. Connecting objects
Combine shots of similar objects in different scenes to create an interesting transition shot. This is another popular drone transition shot to help shape your storytelling narrative.

6. Contrast movement
Contrast the movement of the scene and adjust the lateral and medial directions of the shot to give your shot dynamic movement.

7. Sale cut
This transition recording type connects messages containing similar actions. Whether you're filming a runner or your pet running through the grass, use this transition technique to draw your viewers into the scene.

8. Darkening and lightening
Gradually darken and lighten related scenes and change the brightness to show different emotions in your footage. Darkening/lightening transitions are used to create a sense of mystery, emotion, or to show the passage of time.

9. Multiple angles
Show your subject from multiple angles to emphasize the importance of this scene in your narrative. Try to shoot from as many angles as possible to achieve a cinematic effect.

10. Dolly zoom
The dolly zoom is a Hollywood favorite used to create an intense twisting effect in a scene. The camera zooms in on the subject while zooming out from the background, creating a breathtaking shot. The Mavic 2 Zoom has this feature built in, but you can also zoom out with your post-production software while the drone is flying forward to achieve this transition shot with the other drones.

Shooting creative aerial content is more than just pressing the record button. Remember what type of footage you need before you fly, and we recommend shooting the same scene multiple times to give you more freedom in post-production. If you want to add a touch of creativity to your drone footage, try these transition tips.

    What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humor and the like).
