How to Use our Fire Transitions in DaVinci Resolve

How to Use our Fire Transitions in DaVinci Resolve

March 27, 2021

Add some epic video transitions in DaVinci Resolve with our Fire FX from CinePacks! In addition to some awesome fire video effects, this pack also includes video transitions that are smooth and easy to use. Check them out today! 

This pack comes in two separate zip folders. The easiest way to import these is to open them both, select all the files, and drag into one folder to import into your editing program. Once they’re imported under your Media tab, you can start editing with these video effects in DaVinci Resolve.

To use these video transitions in DaVinci Resolve, navigate to your Fusion tab, then select the video transition you want to use. Each transition has two parts: a track matte and an overlay. Go ahead and grab the track matte; this will serve as a mask to reveal the footage underneath. Rename the track matte by right-clicking and selecting Rename, then connect it to the blue dot of your MediaIn1.

Select your MedianIn1 node and go to Settings on the right hand side of DaVinci Resolve. Change the Channel to Luminance. Open your Keyframe Editor and find the frame where you want your transition to end. Drag the transition over so it aligns properly by ending on that frame.

Next, drag your Burn Overlay on top of the line in between your MediaIn1 and MediaOut1 to merge them together. Then drag your overlay over in the Keyframe Editor so that it aligns with the matte.

Go back to your Edit page and place the footage you want to use underneath your transition. The transition will then play through to reveal your clip. 

Drag any of these fire video effects directly into your timeline. Change the Composite Mode to Screen or Add to make the effect transparent. This same process applies to the other video effects in this pack.

We also have some video transitions included in this fire effect pack that are super easy to use - simply drag and drop them into your timeline, change the Composite Mode to Screen, and align it so that the video transition covers the screen right at the cut in between your two clips. You can customize these video transitions easily through scaling, positioning, or flipping them.


We also included some great LUTs in this Fire FX pack to provide different colors and textures which you can explore. To install these LUTs in DaVinci Resolve, go to File → Project Settings → Color Management → Lookup Tables → Open LUT Folder. This will open the folder where DaVinci stores all of its LUTs. Once that folder is open, navigate to the Fire FX folder and drag the Fire LUTs into your DaVinci Resolve LUTs folder. Navigate back to DaVinci and click Update Lists under Lookup Tables. 

To customize these LUTs in DaVinci Resolve, navigate to your Color Tab and go to your LUTs tab at the top. Apply the LUT to your clip by right clicking on the one you want and selecting Apply LUT to Current Node. Adjust the Hue, Brightness, and Gain sliders as desired if you want to achieve a different look. 

The CinePacks’ Fire Split Effect is another cool editing asset to try in DaVinci Resolve. To use it, grab two clips you want to use and drag them into your timeline. Drag the Fire Split Effect on top of them and change the Composite Mode to Screen. Select one of your clips and click the Transform tool. Move the clip into the frame and position it however you like. Click the arrow by the Transform tool and select Crop if needed. Then select your same clip and repeat the same process to align it inside the frame. 

We also included sound effects for you to use in DaVinci Resolve. Add any of them to your project to make it feel even more authentic!
