Stinger Transitions

  • Files that work best with streaming software will be WEBM, since they are easy to load and also include the transparency needed

  • Recommended to be 1920x1080 since that is the most common streaming resolution and scaling down produces better results than scaling up

  • If you want your transitions to be compatible with video editing, we recommend including MOV files as they are the most widely accepted video file that includes transparency

  • You will want to make sure that atleast the first and last frame of your transition are completely "empty"

  • Included in your files, you should put the information for when your transition "cuts" to the next scene. Essentially dictating when the scene will be hidden completely and ready to cut to the next. This is usually done either in "frames" or "time". Frames will be submitted as a basic number based on the total frames in the video and frame rate. Time will be submitted as a "ms" based on the length of the video. Frame example: Total transition frame count is 120, frame rate of 60, assuming transition point is the middle of your video, your frame would be 60 Time example: Total transition time is 2s, assuming transition point is the middle of your video, your time would be 1000ms

  • You can include audio in your transition files that will play when they are triggered. You will want to include a muted version without audio as well if you do, as you cannot alter audio of transitions in streaming softwares. We also recommend including a "lowered" audio version, will the audio turned down.
