Even though most TikTok videos are brief, they’re often bursting with creative elements. And that’s what draws most of us to the incredibly dynamic platform. And one of the most magical elements of TikTok videos is the transition between scenes.
For instance, a video that begins with a person on a bed and with a natural complexion suddenly morphs into a gorgeously made-up face with a perfect blow-dry. Or when someone alters their entire outfit with a quick hop and snap of the fingers. Simply put, the effect is bussin’.
However, as much as transitions are fun to watch, creating them can be a bit of a hassle. But it’s never impossible! If you’re somewhat interested in these transitions or just a newbie on TikTok looking to spice up your videos, we’ve got 6 best and well-known TikTok transitions listed below that you should absolutely try!
Finger Snap Transition
This rather simple transition gets a lot of attention from netizens. You must first determine the nature of the transition before carrying it out. To denote travel – in space or time – is the perfect way to use this transition. Like switching from a scene of urban life to a stunning natural setting. It could also be a switch between modest attire and gangster garb. Just place your hands right in front of the camera with your preferred background or outfit and click record.

This is an easy one – much like the finger snap transition. With one hand swipe, you can make yourself invisible to the camera, and with another, you can reappear. You can choose to lift your hands and swipe, or simply do a regular swipe to get the transition right.
Sideways, up or even down – it doesn’t really matter, just as long as your head gets pushed!

This transition seems like it’s done by two people, but that’s just a simple trick. When someone moves their head to one side of the camera’s field of view, it appears as though someone else has just pushed them out of the frame. When the person being pushed is the same person that enters the frame from the opposite side, it can be a little perplexing. You can even use things like shoes to push your head instead of using just your head. Be creative in any way you like.
When it first hit TikTok, this transition swept the platform by storm and became incredibly popular. To make this transition, the clips must first be separated. Although it takes a little labour, the result is unquestionably cool. The best part is that you can make this shift with two or more people.
Over The Head Transition

This transition is a little trickier, but once you get it down, the results are eye-catching. You’ll need to record yourself holding your phone. Start filming while holding your phone vertically. Then, turn it upside down. Bring your phone to the top of your head in a quarter-circle movement. Finish recording. Your phone should now be upright again. Once you’ve finished recording, immediately return your phone to the starting point.
Close Up Transition
The “shift” is growing in popularity. It’s simple enough for beginners to carry out to prevent scrolling. Here’s how you do it: Start recording. Bring your phone close to you and then pull it away from you. Stop and change your outfit or accessories. Start recording again and pull the phone back to where you started, after which, you go back to where you stopped.
