Smooth Spin Blur Rotation Transition Tutorial

by Justin Odisho

I recently saw this transition on the National Geographic television show “Continent 7: Antarctica” and had to find out how it was done.  Then I found Justin Odisho‘s tutorial on how to create a smooth rotation spin transition effect in Adobe Premiere Pro CC…

It’s more than a simple transition!

It’s a rather complicated effect, but rest assured, once you’re done you can easily copy and paste your adjustment layers over other edit points in your timeline. Even better, save the sequence with the adjustment layers as a Premiere Pro project “template” and import the sequence into your other projects whenever you want it.
