Thread: Combining many short clips on the timeline with transition fx

    Default Combining many short clips on the timeline with transition fx

    I have a 30 minute movie from a collegue of mine who held a speech. This speech was notorious for it's "uuuuuuuhm"-moments. Now I want to string all of these together so I get one big "uuuhmmm... hmmmm... uhhhmm" movie (get your mind out of the gutter ). I want to do this by cutting and deleting all the other pieces, so I only have a lot of 1 to 2 second clips left on the timeline.

    I know how to ripple-delete these, but how can I make it so that the audio and video has a short (3 to 5 frames) cross-fade? I'd hate to add these to 100 clips by hand... :(

    What s/w you using? You didn't say!

    In PPro you can define a default transition. I've never used it so check your docs on exactly how it's done.

    Hopefully, once set up it will be as simple as dragging your clips together on the timeline and then the transition will kick in.

    If not then it jujst might be a manual task - which is not a bad thing really because for general stuff, transitions should be used very sparingly after all.

    The keyboard shortcut for applying the default transition is CTRL+D, I think.

    I once made a photo slideshow and wanted to put a very brief cross dissolve between each photo. Use the page down key to step to the next join between clips, hit CTRL+D, then repeat.

    You can knock out 100 transitions in no time.

    Remember to set the desired default transition duration in Preferences beforehand.

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I totally forgot to add that I'm using Premiere Pro 1.5 at work, with no manual :(

    I will give the page-down/CTRL-D a try!
