Chapter 8. Transitions > A/B Roll vs. Single-Track Transitions

A/B Roll vs. Single-Track Transitions

From the beginning of this book, you learned that transitions are displayed differently depending on whether you set the workspace to A/B-roll editing or single-track editing. In this chapter, you’ll finally see the difference in action. You can achieve the same results by using either layout, but each requires a different approach.

When you set the workspace to A/B roll, the Video 1 track is split into an A track and a B track. Transitions appear in the Transition track, which runs between the A and B tracks. This layout emulates a traditional A/B-roll editing suite. In A/B-roll editing, transitions are accomplished by playing two source tapes (A and B) at the same time and transitioning between the two with a video switcher. The tracks of the expanded view correspond to this editing model.
