Chapter 7. Adding Transitions > Understanding Transitions

Understanding Transitions

If you’re an experienced editor and already know the concepts behind transitions, feel free to skip ahead to the tasks (cut to the chase, as the old editing expression goes). But if you’re new to editing, the inner workings of transitions can seem a little mysterious at first.

When you cut from one clip to another, the transition is instantaneous: The Out point of the first clip is immediately followed by the In point of the second clip. To switch from one clip to another more gradually, however, transitions must use frames beyond the cut point. In other words, the transition must mix some of the frames you previously trimmed away: frames after the first clip’s Out point, before the second clip’s In point, or, most often, a combination of both. (Remember, because editing in Premiere Elements is nondestructive, the frames you trimmed away are always available for use.)
