Does anyone use the many animated transitions that come included with editing software in their moneymaking work?
There are dozens of explosions, confetti bursts, peels, wipes, smears, shears, rolls, and flips in my system and I can buy hundreds more online if I want. But I'm pretty much a dissolve guy with the very occasional dip to white or black. Am I just boring and missing opportunities to make my work better?
Are any of these transitions useful in ways that I'm not thinking of for enhancing serious documentary or narrative work?
