Using a White Flash as a Transition in Final Cut Pro

Have you ever watched a movie where as you are cut to the next scence, there is a white flash. This is a very popular effect used in many Hollywood feature films and it can be achieved by using the Dip To Color video transition.

Using The Dip To Color Transition to Create a Flash of White Between a Cut

1 Place the playhead on the cut in the timeline where you want to perform the Dip To Color Transition.

2 Go to Effects > Video Transitions > Dissolves > Dip To Color Dissolve.
