Chapter 8. Transitions > Using a Default Transition

Using a Default Transition

If you frequently use a transition, you can set it as the default transition to apply it quickly, without going to the Transitions palette. The default transition also defines the initial duration of transitions added in the single-track workspace.

To specify the default transition and duration:

1.
In the Transitions palette, choose the transition that you want to set as the default.

2.
From the Transitions palette's pull-down menu, choose Set Selected as Default (Figure 8.50).

Figure 8.50. Select a transition, and choose Set Selected as Default.


The Default Effect dialog box appears.

3.
Enter a duration, in frames, for the default transition (Figure 8.51).

4.
From the Effect Alignment pull-down menu, choose an alignment (Figure 8.52):

Center at Cut—uses the same number of hidden frames after the out point of the first clip and before the in point of the second clip.

Start at Cut—uses the hidden frames after the out point of the first clip.

End at Cut—uses the hidden frames before the in point of the second clip.

5.
Click OK to set the default transition and close the dialog box.

When you apply the default transition, it reflects the settings you specified.
