Fluid Ink Transition Effects

Download 4K HD ink fluid effects here.

Video transitions are one of the critical aspects of editing, connecting two different shots together. Since the dawn of digital editing, we have seen creators begin to take transitions even more seriously than before, especially in the vlog format.

Whip-pans, spins, fades and light leaks have all become a popular choice for Premiere Pro editors, but one other is a particular favourite of ours. Fluid transitions!

Otherwise known as ink bleeds, these can be some of the most stylish and beautiful effects, and add a whole new dynamic to your video.

To make your own, you’ll need three things. Your clips, an editing platform, and one of our fluid ink transition effects (which you can download here).

It’s then as simple as setting your clips alpha to match the brightness) of our transition effect. This can be done by placing the effect above your second clip and adding a “Track Matte Key” to the clip you’re fading into. You then select the ink-effect in the “Matte” option.

The “composite using” is what this effect uses to calculate the alpha value of the second clip, and since our ink effect is black and white, we’ll be using the luma value as our source.

Have fun with these awesome 4K ink fluid effects. If you want to hear about more ways you can use our range of effects, take a look at our blog!

HD Blood VFX Collection

Halloween is approaching, which is the perfect time to think about the spooky areas of VFX, like blood! It has always been very close to our hearts when working in special effects. Producers tend to want to keep their actors alive, and so studios must find ways to recreate these gore-filled sequences using safer methods.

You’ve probably heard of the classic squib! These are miniaturised air cannons which can be remotely set off, forcing blood-coloured fluid effects into the air. This creates the illusion of a bullet impact! However, these can be expensive, timely to set up and will ruin whatever you’re wearing. This is why the industry has been shifting more towards compositing these blood effects digitally using VFX.

This shot featured in our “Put a gun through a hand” tutorial did exactly this. We used blood explosion assets which are all available to download on FootageCrate. We even have free blood impacts as well, so there’s nothing to stop you from turning your movie into a gruesomely realistic action adventure!

Our HD pre-keyed blood explosions are easy to composite, it’s as simple as dragging and dropping the effect into your video using any compositing software. Popular ones to try are Adobe After Effects, Hitfilm, and Premiere Pro which are all accessible to learn from our countless tutorials.

After hosting this content for more than 8 years, we’re proud of our blood splatter VFX, and we hope you have great fun using these in your video.
