Chapter 8. Transitions > Adjusting a Single-Track Transition

Adjusting a Single-Track Transition

Even if you’re good at anticipating how a single-track transition will look, chances are that you’ll need to make small adjustments. You can adjust the transition in either track mode, though it’s usually easier to make small changes when you set track mode to display a split Video 1 track.

To adjust a single-track transition:

1.
Click the track mode button to view the Video 1 track in split-track mode.

The icon indicates that the single track is in split-track mode.

2.
For the transition you want to adjust, do any of the following:

  • To change the position of the transition without changing its duration, drag the transition to the right or left (Figures 8.46 and 8.47).

    Figure 8.46. To change the position of the transition without changing its duration, drag the transition to the right or left.

    Figure 8.47. After the transition is moved, Premiere trims the corresponding edges of the clips accordingly.

  • To change the duration of the transition by changing its starting point, drag the left edge of the transition or the in point of the second clip.

  • To change the duration of the transition by changing where it ends, drag the right edge of the transition or the out point of the first clip (Figures 8.48 and 8.49).

    Figure 8.48. To change the duration of the transition, drag the edge. In this example, synch mode is off, so the video can be trimmed unrestricted by the audio.

    Figure 8.49. After you trim the transition, Premiere trims the corresponding edges of the clips accordingly.

Premiere trims the corresponding edges of the transition or clip to keep the edges aligned.
