The essence of any transitions is to combine two or more clips into a single whole through transitions and their accompanying actions.

This is the only challenge here – to record the clips the right way. We choose props to reflect the changes, whether it's cosmetics a change of clothes, or a change of scenery. At first, we need to prepare everything before the actual record.

TikTok Finger Challenge requirements

Our requirements are a tripod or any strong surface to place your camera on. Besides, we need to mark our position in front of the camera to avoid obvious seems between clips. For the marks you can use anything handy, you can stick something to the floor for instance, just make sure these marks do not move as you need them to understand where you stayed in a previous scene before doing the next one. It is also recommended to set a timer for your records because we have a time limit of 15 seconds for such clips to be effective on TikTok. Hence, taking a position also takes some time, so you need to make sure you are ready and in a position for that time. And that is pretty much it. Now we need to understand what to do on the record.
