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.
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.
........... 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.
