Coming up with original and creative ways to transition from one clip to another in Final Cut Pro is always a challenge. Here is an idea that I came up with on a job recently. First create a 14 frame space between the two clips that you are transitioning between, then add a Color Matte into that space. Now Keyframe the color across the 14 frame Color Matte to go from the dominant color of the outgoing clip to the dominant color of the incoming clip. You may want to change the direction of the Hue Direction Control, to get the look you are going for.

Next add the same 14 frame transition to both edits. I used the Wind Blur Cross, which is a free plugin. If you are unsure how to add plugins to your Final Cut System click here.
