    hello people!
    I would like to know how you do a transition in wich for example this happens:
    zoom on an eye of a person
    zoom out of eye of another person
    a response would be greatly appreciated...

    What we have here is generally known as a "match cut", where the outgoing shot matcheds the general shape of the incoming shot. These can be shots of very similar things (such as the eyes of different people) or quite different things (such as a rotating car wheel into a washing machine drum).

    There's nothing magic about what youre trying to do - the secret, in your case, is t get the eyes on both shots lined up perfectly. Zoom right in so that the eye is no longet identifiable as such and out from a zimilar shoy. Zooming such that you go out of focus amd adding a dissolve to the transition will smooth the cut.

    As I said, it's one example of a "match cut". What you want to do would be best achieved by planning. Film the outgoing shot with a zoom (prbably a crash zoom) into the subject's eyes, then the incoming shot with a crash zoom out from the subject's eyes.
    You can do it in post by using your editing suite to do the zooms, however, unless the zoom is very quick (which may not be what you want to achieve) the loss in quality as you zoom in will be noticable.

    Here's one I just knocked up in post.
