Lesson 4. Adding Transitions

Lesson 4. Adding Transitions

Although an instantaneous switch from one clip to another is the most common and simple way to combine video clips, Adobe Premiere also gives you dozens of options for varying the change from one clip to another. Such transitions can provide texture, nuance, and special effects.

In this lesson, you'll create a short prelude to a television program about dreams, using transitions between clips, special effects, and precisely trimmed clips. The Classroom in a Book CD includes both a sample of the final movie and the final project in the Lesson 4 folder. You may find both useful as electronic visual references as you work with the more advanced tools and perform the complex steps in the lesson. Since the subject of dreams lends itself well to the use of transitions, you'll use a variety of transitions in interesting ways. Specifically, you'll learn how to do the following:

  • Place a transition using the Default transition and the Transitions palette.

  • Preview transitions.

  • Modify transition settings

  • Trim clips to precise timecodes for special transition effects.

  • Add a special effect.
