Chapter 5. Adding the Right Transition > Using Gradient Wipe Transitions

Using Gradient Wipe Transitions

The last few sections have covered cuts and dissolves as transitions. Now, let's investigate what you can do with Premiere's digital transitions. All the transitions found in the Transitions Palette work by letting you drag the desired transition icon from the Transitions Palette onto an edit point on Video Track 1 in your timeline as long as enough source material (handles) exists to complete the transition.

One of my favorite transitions to use is the gradient wipe transition. You can use the default gradient transition or create your own using any grayscale image. Premiere then animates that image into a transition for you. The default wipe consists of a grayscale gradient blend from black to white, as shown in Figure 5.17. Premiere can create custom transitions over whatever duration you specify. You can blend the outgoing scene into the incoming clip by designing your own gradient images, as shown in Figure 5.18.
