Strobe Edit

Technical Tutorial Published 8/23/17 Last updated on 5/27/19

A video editing technique that I wanted my Year 11's to practice was a strobe edit. This type of edit is used a lot in the creation of movie trailers (which is the project they are currently working on) and is often synchronised with music and sound effects. The effect is basically an action shot of some type where the clip rapidly flashes on and off to black giving a strobe like effect. As the action of the shot increases, the strobe effect gets faster and the sound effects and music get louder and higher.

Thank you for explaining the use of Strobe edit in Adobe Premiere Pro. Little by little we can learn the right mix of strobe effect, music and sound effects.
