How do I add a transition between every clip in Premiere Elements 11?

Greetings -

 

Folks, I'm looking for a feature that even the cheesy old Windows Movie Maker used to have.  I'm trying to figure out how to get Premiere Elements 11 to add a transition between every clip via some shortcut/quick means.  I find it obnoxious and inefficient that I need to manually drag a transition between every clip.  If I import 200 short clips that I took with my point and shoot camera, it'll take me over an hour alone just to put the transitions in place.

 

Is there any way to select a transition and have Premiere Elements add it between every clip?  I've stumbled on the fact that you can click a transition and make it the "Default" but have not been able to figure out what that does for me.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thank you.

 

Andy

    As I show you in my book, you can select all of the clips you want a transition between, right-click on the group and select Apply Default Transition and it will be applied between all of the clips.

     

    You can set any transition to be the default by right-clicking on it in the Transitions panel.

    Were you able to add your transitions as desired? I could add them but the time was set by defaul as 0 seconds and I have not been able to change that. Tips???

    I think trying  Edit > Preferences > General > Video Default Transition Duration will fix it.  Mine came with 30 frames set at installation.
