Customizing Transitions?

Is there a way to customize a transition, let's say cross dissolve, and then save it? I'm coming from FCP and figuring out there are some things I use all the time in FCP that I can't seem to find in Premiere Pro.


Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    No you cannot save transitions, however you can use the Opacity in the Fixed Effect any which way you like and save that as a preset.

    To quote myself from another thread:


    I keep a project with video and audio that has all of my favorite effects on them. I renamed the clips to tell me what effect they carry. Or, in the case of transitions, I use the same clip with the transition description as part of the name. The project also has my logo, some standard titles, and a variety of commonly use audio and video clips.


    I just import that project into just about every new project I create.


    I used to just copy and paste between the sequence with the effects on it (named Saved Effects0 and the sequence for my new project. It was a hassle switching back and forth, but then Ann Bens pointed out that I could just have the Save Effects sequence sit right on top of the main sequence. I have the room. I am using two 1920X1080 monitors.


    Since it is easy enough to copy a transition and apply it to a new cut, this works for me.
