Working with Default and Favorite Transitions

Final Cut Express offers one default video transition—a 1-second cross-dissolve (Figure 13.9)—and one default audio transition—a 1-second cross-fade (Figure 13.10). The default transitions are available from the Effects menu, the edit point’s shortcut menu, and as keyboard commands. A transition edit, available in the Canvas edit overlay, automatically includes the default transition at the time you perform the edit. You can also designate a transition (or any other type of effect) as a Favorite by dragging the effect from the Browser, Viewer, or Timeline and placing it in the Favorites folder on the Effects tab in the Browser. Using Favorites is an easy way to save a transition’s settings so you can reproduce the effect later. You can build up a small group of favorite transitions for a particular project.

Figure 13.9. FCE’s default video transition is a 1-second cross-dissolve.
