Transitions create professional fade and cross-fade effects. Click the transitions icon in the upper left of the Timeline panel. Then choose a duration, and drag a transition type to the start or end of clips. (Place the transition between clips to cross-fade.) Drag the edges of the transition preview in the Timeline to precisely set in and out points.
Right-click transitions in the Timeline to replace them with another transition type or specify a precise numeric duration.
Right-click video clips to access Duration and Speed sliders. These controls interact; for example, a Speed of 400% limits the maximum duration to one-quarter of the original.
To apply filters across all frames in a video layer, first convert the layer into a Smart Object. Any subsequent filters you apply become Smart Filters, which provide total flexibility, letting you readjust filter settings at any time.
For more information, see Nondestructive editing.
Right-click text, still-image, and Smart Object clips to access pan, zoom, and rotate presets, quickly applying sophisticated animation. Drag the resulting Transform keyframes in the Timeline to fine-tune the results.
To create dramatic effects as you pan, scale, and rotate clips over time, convert your clip to a Smart Object and use Transform keyframes with the Free Transform tool.
