I am trying to splice together several clips of a person speaking. Unfortunately, one clip ends with the person facing one way and the next clip begins with the person facing the opposite direction. So when the whole movie sequence is played there is an awful image jump between clips. Is there any method to eliminating this "jump" between clips?

You can use a cross-dissolve... It will still look pretty bad but it can get rid of the harsh jump.

You could also try a white flash. Just put a white matte (video generator) at the end of the first clip, in a video track above the second one, and fade the opacity down quickly over the second clip....

I do alot of editing for public speaking events and such... in this type of venue I can usually I can cover the cut with a dissolve to and from a crowd shot from a different part of the teaching/speaking. Most people won't notice they are seeing the same shot twice when it shows later.

Hopefully one of those suggestions wil help.

well do you have any other suggestions, would using two cameras filming simultaneously and just switching between angles avoid the situation???

If you had two cameras, you could fade from one shoot to the other.
