Workshop

Review the questions and answers in this section to try to sharpen your Premiere transition-editing skills. Also, take a few moments to tackle my short quiz and exercises.

Q&A

Q1:I go to the Transitions palette and open a transition to preview it, but all I see are those A and B clips in the windows. I want to see my clips, and there is no check box labeled Show Actual Sources.
A1: You need to drag the transition to the edit point on the timeline. Unless you tell Premiere what source clips you're using, it can't display them. Despite this, double-clicking a transition is the fastest way to preview it.
Q2:Finding transitions by name is cumbersome. I remember seeing some with descriptive names, but searching through all the Transition palette sections is tedious. Is there a better way?
A2: You bet. Use the Find tool. Click the little binoculars icon at the bottom of the Transitions palette and then type in part or all of the transition name, as you remember it. Just like using the Find feature in a word processor, it'll take you to each instance of that word, one after the other.
