No matter what video editing app you use, there are likely transitions built-in that help you cut between scenes. Standard transitions like fades and cuts are often preferred for their simplicity and ease-of-use.
But in this roundup, we're going to get more creative with video transitions. These transitions are going to really grab the viewer's attention as you jump from scene-to-scene. When you're looking for an animation that stands out, any of these projects from Envato Market are a great pick.
Let's dive into a look at 15 cool video transitions for After Effects & Premiere Pro. Make sure to check out the item description for compatibility with each app, and any plugins you might need to grab to make it work.
