This is a tutorial that I posted recently showing how to create a Luma Fade transition in LumaFusion using Luma Key.
Although Luma keys in LumaFusion support keyframing, the luma range levels don’t progress between key frames, so the transition cannot be easily created.
This tutorial shows an alternative method that still uses Luma Keys to create a Luma Fade Transition.

The method discussed in this tutorial gives you the flexibility to decide whether you want to fade out the first video revealing the second one or fade in the second video, hiding the first one in the process. You can also decide if you want the video to fade from bright to dark or from dark to bright.

That is very impressive work.
I don’t like effects for effects sake. In other words I hate how people insist on jazzing up reality. However I am interested in ways of making transitions more natural, and less abrupt, i.e. less noticeable!
Your technique could be better than a fade transition if done subtly. It’s a pity it can’t be easily automated as a standard transition but it’s very clever and clearly presented in your tutorial.
Thank you

Thanks Mark!
In the tutorial I made the transition 3 seconds long so viewers could better follow how the fade progresses.
I agree with you, in transitions less is more.
I usually use this transition in 2 different ways; a 1 second or less subtle transition as you mentioned and a 3-4 seconds transition where the subject in the second video is masked in first, kind of what I did with the Statue of Liberty in the tutorial.
In some NLEs fade transitions have attributes and settings, with Luma Fade being one of the options. I agree, it would be great to have Luma Fade as a stock transition.
I also would find value in having the ability to keyframe the value of the keys in Luma Key and Chromakey.
