How to remove all transitions?

Nov 8, 2008 11:26 PM

I used the automate to sequence with default transition. A few dozens of transitions were added to the sequence.
How to remove all the transitions without deleting the sequence and starting from scratch please?

Thanks in advance.

    AFAIK there is no way to select all in one go.

    A tip:
    Since one click on the wrong place deselect all transitions you just selected i would select lets say ten transitions and delete them, select ten more and delete them, etc until all are gone. :)

    Given that you can apply the default transition to all selected clips in CS4, it might be nice to have a NONE transition which you could apply to all selected clips and thus remove any applied transitions.

    If jusko thinks it worth it, he could submit a feature request to http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform.

    Depending on what editing you have done after using Automate to Timeline, it might be quicker just to repeat the process into a clean sequence (so you have a backup in the original sequence if you change your mind).

    >"transitions" are in fact under the "effects" category.

    Do you mean in a general video production kind of way, or do you mean specifically in a folder or a menu? Because in the first sense, an effect and a transition are two very different things, and in the second sense, previous versions of Premiere did indeed have them separate. If they're now combined, well...Adobe should also realize the first sense and probably should not have done that.

    I also think, if there is an option ...apply the default transition to all selected... you have done that to your 100 over clips, then there should also be an option 'remove all transitions for the selected area'.

    Why give a shortcut to apply transitions to it all but now way to get rid of them?

     

    I found that putting in transitions doubles my movie size. So I dont want them any more...so, putting them in was easy and getting rid of them is tedious?
    It looks like going to the Mafia for a cash credit. Getting it is easy but paying it back costs you a finger or your life.

    Is that true, putting in transitions doubles the movie size? Are yuo sure, because as far as I remembr my final file is always same size, it only depended to the lenght not the efects!

     

    I think the effects and transitions only make the encoding time long not the file size.

    Adding transitions will have no effect whatsoever either on the resolution of your export or the file size of your export.

    I tend to disagree....

    same export settings....NO transitions 29.7Mb Movie....WITH transitions 54.8 Mb.

    Well, its not exactly double but its substantially more.

    File size is determined by two factors, the bitrate and the duration.  Codec, resolution, frame rate, content and other factors do not come into play here.

     

    The only way to get such a large difference between files is to change one of those two mentioned factors - bitrate or duration.  The most likely explanation here is observer error.  Either the files aren't the reported sizes, or the settings were not identical.

    The difference in file size you are seeing is because you are only using motionless stills in your movies. No motion, and no effects. Some codecs allows for file size reduction by writing first and last frame information for a still, regardless of the length in the video sequence. Why the transition increases file size is because the codec actually has to write info for each frame in the length of the transition.

     

    This is not going to be the case with anybody working with actual video clips, or if someone adds motion to their stills. The codec then has to write information for every frame, resulting in a larger file size. For most projects, transitions will not make any significant change in file size.

    Stephen, yes that may well be.

    I am adding a lot of changes to my frames and all the changing frames add new information while if I have only still images to show.

     

    Another interesting observation is: Although I have only still images and nothing much changes from frame to frame the movie has a huge size.

    Actually during the export changes from frame to frame could be taken into account to make the movie smaller.
