Thread: The How I Met Your Mother whoosh transition

    Smile The How I Met Your Mother whoosh transition

    I'm trying to use a transition similar to the one used in every episode of How I Met Your Mother when a character starts telling a story and we flashback to the past. There's always a whoosh sound and the pictures blurs and zooms quickly into the next scene. I'm using Magix Movie Edit Pro 17.

    Look again because it's the exact same effect.

    Similar. Okay so how do you do it?

    It's just a basic "slide" transition with a blur and panned audio. Almost any NLE can do a slide effect.

    The sound can be added to the transition if using Final Cut Express or Final Cut Pro you will need to add the whoosh sound anyway. that transition is a very common one on the BBC at the moment ..
