Chapter 8. Transitions

Chapter 8. Transitions

A transition is the way one clip visually replaces the next. Although the cut is the most basic transition, the term transition usually refers to a more gradual change from one clip to another (Figure 8.1). Adobe Premiere ships with 75 customizable transitions, including an array of dissolves, wipes, and special effects.

Available transitions are listed in a new, improved Transitions palette. In Premiere 6, the Transitions palette organizes the available transitions into categorized folders. This arrangement makes it easy to sift through all the transitions to locate the one you need. Like all palettes, the Transitions palette can be grouped or docked with other palettes, and it can be customized to display just the information you need.

You can save and load custom sets of transitions. You can also specify a default transition, which can be applied at the click of a button.

Ordinarily, you use a transition in the traditional manner: to change completely from one shot to the next. But you can also customize transitions to achieve effects that aren't, strictly speaking, transitions. In addition, you can layer transitions to create complex effects by using a feature called virtual clips.
