TikTok has a variety of trends to make your video click-baiting for the viewer. You probably heard about different types of transitions and effects such as makeup, clothes, outfits, jumps, and many other transitions. Some of these were very popular at the TikTok launch and some of them live nowadays.
Finger snap as a transition has a lot of use and is a very popular trend on TikTok still.
You can use finger snap to add the transition to any scene, whether you change clothes, shoot outside day and nighttime differences or places, or do a makeup transition. Finger snap specification is based on continuous snapping from scene to scene multiple times.
That way it takes the effect of controlling not only your appearance in the frame but also your surroundings. Thus, it is a very flexible transition to use. You can use finger snap transition as itself and in combination with other transitions to make your scene more complex.
Finger snap is a very simple transition at the same time, you can use it as a trigger to cut your scene, that way it is very easy to time it during the editing process in your chosen app.
Timing and rounds
TikTok's most popular videos are at 15s in length, which makes you be precise.
When filming, you need to set a timer in the app that will do a 3-2-1 countdown, which gets you ready to action. Other than that, when you pick your scene’s length, you can separate the timeline with parts of 3-5 seconds depending on how many snaps you are going to do eventually. That way, if you pick 5 scenes on a 15-seconds timeline, you have 3 seconds for each snap.
Now find the idea you want to do with a finger snap transition. Let it be added on clothes change as a transition. The whole idea is about you getting clothes on or off with each snap.
As we mentioned above, the snap is our trigger to cut a scene, make sure your snapping fingers stay in frame and not go off before the snap is completed. Repeat the action 3-5 times depending on how many clothes you want to put on or off in the scene, and now it is time to process the video in the Vjump app for TikTok.
