Lesson 3. Transitions > About transitions

About transitions

In the Tour, you were introduced to transitions or changes from one scene or clip to the next. The simplest type of transition is the cut, in which the last frame of one clip is simply followed by the first frame of the next. The cut is the most often used transition in video and film and is often the most effective. However, you will also use a variety of other types of transitions to achieve effects between scenes.

In Premiere Pro, transitions can be added to a project in a variety of ways. For example, you can select clips in the Bin area of the Project window, or create a sequence in the Sequence window, and then use Automate to Sequence with a default transition. This is useful, for instance, if you want to focus on the general flow of the sequence first, and then adjust or replace some of the transitions as you fine-tune your program. You can also pre-trim clips, add them to the Timeline, and then insert a transition between them. Whichever method you prefer, Premiere makes it easy to replace or modify transitions after adding them to the Timeline.
