Learn how to modify and customize transitions in the Premiere Pro Effect Controls panel and timeline.

Display transitions in the Effect Controls panel

You can use the Effect Controls panel to change settings for a transition you placed in a sequence. Settings vary from transition to transition. In the Effect Controls panel, the adjoining clips and transition are displayed in A-roll/B-roll format.

  • To open the transition in the Effects control panel, click the transition in a Timeline panel.
  • To show or hide the time ruler in the Effect Controls panel, click the Show/Hide Timeline View button . If necessary, widen the panel to make this button visible and active.
  • To play back the transition in the Effect Controls panel, click the Play The Transition button. This doesn’t affect the Program Monitor.
  • To view frames from the actual clip or clips in the Effect Controls panel, select Show Actual Sources.
  • To see a specific frame of the transition in the small preview, click the Play The Transition button. Then drag the current-time indicator in the Effect Controls panel’s time ruler to the desired frame.

Notă:

Keyframes cannot be used with transitions. For transitions, the Timeline View in the Effect Controls panel is used for adjusting transition alignment and duration.  

Kevin Monahan shows how to create new transitions based on effects in an article on the Adobe website: using effects as transitions in Adobe Premiere Pro in this blog post.

Adjust transition alignment

You can change the alignment of a transition placed between two clips in either a Timeline panel or the Effect Controls panel. A transition need not be centered or strictly aligned to the cut. You can drag the transition to reposition it over the cut as desired.

Notă:

You can’t change a double-sided transition into a single-sided transition. If you realign a double-sided transition to the start or end of a clip, it will use handles from the adjacent clip.

Align a transition in a Timeline panel

  1. In a Timeline panel, zoom in so that you can clearly see the transition.
  2. Drag the transition over the cut to reposition it.

Align a transition using the Effect Controls panel

  1. Double-click the transition in a Timeline panel to open the Effect Controls panel.
  2. If the Effect Controls time ruler is not visible, click the Show/Hide Timeline View button in the Effect Controls panel. If necessary, widen the panel to make this button visible and active.
  3. In the Effect Controls time ruler, position the pointer over the center of the transition until the Slide Transition icon appears; then drag the transition as desired. For finer control, magnify the time ruler.
    • To center the transition on the cut line, in the Effect Controls panel, double-click the transition, and select Center At Cut.

    • To place all of the transition in the clip preceding the edit point, drag the transition to the left to align its end to the edit point. Alternatively, in the Effect Controls panel, double-click the transition, and select End At Cut.

    • To place all of the transition in the clip following the edit point, drag the transition to the right to align its beginning to the edit point. Alternatively, in the Effect Controls panel, double-click the transition, and select Start At Cut.

    • To place unequal portions of the transition in each clip, drag the transition slightly left or right. For finer control, zoom in on the time ruler.

    Notă:

    You can also choose an option from the Alignment menu in the Effect Controls panel. Custom Start appears as an option in the Alignment field only when you drag the transition to a custom location over the cut.  

Move a cut and transition together

You can adjust the location of the cut in the Effect Controls panel. Moving the cut line changes the In and Out points of the clips, but does not affect the length of the movie. As you move the cut, the transition moves with it.

Notă:

You can’t move the cut beyond the end of a clip. If both clips do not have trimmed frames extending beyond the cut, you cannot reposition the cut.

  1. Double-click the transition in a Timeline panel to open the Effect Controls panel.
  2. If the Effect Controls time ruler is not visible, click the Show/Hide Timeline View button in the Effect Controls panel. If necessary, widen the panel to make this button visible and active.
  3. In the Effect Controls time ruler, position the pointer over the transition, placing it on the thin vertical line that marks the cut. The pointer changes from the Slide Transition icon to the Ripple Edit icon .
  4. Drag the cut as desired. (You can’t move the cut beyond either end of the clip.)

Change transition duration

You can edit a transition’s duration in either a Timeline panel or the Effect Controls panel. The default duration for transitions is initially set to 1 second.

Lengthening a transition’s duration requires that one or both clips have enough trimmed frames to accommodate a longer transition. (See Clip handles and transitions.)

Change transition duration in a Timeline panel

  1. In a Timeline panel, position the pointer over the end of the transition until the Trim-In icon  or the Trim-Out icon  appears; then drag.

Change transition duration in the Effect Controls panel

  1. Double-click the transition in a Timeline panel to open the Effect Controls panel.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • In the Effect Controls time ruler, position the pointer over the transition until the Trim-In icon or the Trim-Out icon appears; then drag. (If the Effect Controls time ruler is not visible, click the Show/Hide Timeline View button in the Effect Controls panel. If necessary, widen the panel to make this button visible and active.)

    • Drag the Duration value, or select it and type a new value. How the transition changes length depends on the alignment option currently selected:

    Center At Cut or Custom Start

    The transition’s start and end points move equally in opposite directions.

    Start At Cut

    Only the end of the transition moves.

    End At Cut

    Only the beginning of the transition moves.

Set the default duration for transitions

If you change the default, the new setting has no affect on transitions already placed.

  1. Choose Edit > Preferences > General.
  2. Change the value for the Video Transition Default Duration or Audio Transition Default Duration; then click OK.

Reposition the center of a transition

Some transitions, such as Iris Round, are positioned around a center. When a transition has a center that can be repositioned, you can drag a small circle in the A preview area in the Effects Control panel.

  1. Click the transition in a Timeline panel to open the Effect Controls panel.
  2. In the A preview area in the Effect Controls panel, drag the small circle to reposition the transition center. (Not all transitions have an adjustable center point.)

Change transition settings

  1. In a Timeline panel, click a transition to select it.
  2. In the Effect Controls panel, adjust settings:

    Edge selectors

    Change the orientation or direction of the transition. Click an Edge selector arrow on the transition’s thumbnail. For example, the Barn Doors transition can be oriented vertically or horizontally. A transition doesn’t have Edge selectors if it has one orientation or if orientation isn’t applicable.

    Start and End sliders

    Set the percentage of the transition that is complete at the start and end of the transition. Hold down the Shift key to move the start and end sliders together.

    Show Actual Sources

    Displays the starting and ending frames of the clips.

    Border Width

    Adjusts the width of the optional border on the transition. The default Border is None. Some transitions do not have borders.

    Border Color

    Specifies the color of the transition’s border. Double-click the color swatch or use the eyedropper to choose the color.

    Reverse

    Plays the transition backward. For example, the Clock Wipe transition plays counterclockwise.

    Anti‑Aliasing Quality

    Adjusts the smoothness of the transition’s edges.

    Custom

    Changes settings specific to the transition. Most transitions don’t have custom settings.
