How do yo do that?
Huh? Say that I have 10 clips that require dip to black 2 seconds centered. 5 that require dip to black 4 seconds on the right. 20 that require cross dissolve of 2 seconds. 2 that require film dissolve at 2 seconds. What's the fastest way for me to do this?

Well the only way I know is to drag and drop every transition, or change the default and use CTRL+D. I see no way to add transitions across selected clips.
Is there any reason why transitions shouldn't be able to be applied just like Presets/Effects? Select a bunch of clips, drag a transition into that group, voila? Select a bunch, apply once.

It is ridiculous how many of these rudimentary issues I'm finding with Premiere... how old is Premiere?
Looks like it was released almost a decade ago. I absolutely can't fathom how I could have been the first person to come up with this suggestion in ten years.
I couldn't get the default transition idea to work, but for those just looking to have a common transition for multiple tracks - you can just 'nest' the clips together that have a common transition, then drag the transition effect to the combined clip.
To nest, select the tracks you want, then right click and click nest. If you ever need to dive back into the individual clicks, double click on the nested sequence.
There's a way to apply the default transition to a bunch of clips at once, selecting them on the timeline (I'm using Premiere 6.0).
What you need to do is to select the clips and enable trim (some red brackets will appear at the beggining or end of the clips). Then, right click and Apply default transition.
It works only with the default transition, but it's better than nothing!
This also works in cuts between two clips (CTRL + click). To select multiple cuts, use CTRL + SHIFT + click.

I just marquee drag with the Roll tool to select the edit points.

Or use the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + D (Windows) or CMD + D (Mac).
I have a track with Powerpoint slide images that I'm trying to fade in and out over the video of the speaker using Cross Dissolve.
Sequence / Apply Default Transitions applies the transitions between adjoining slides, but doesn't do anything at the beginning and end of a slide or sequence of slides. Apply Video Transition Ctrl-D is greyed out.
Any suggestions? Using PPro CS5.
i am currently doing a simple project in the latest version of premiere.
i taught computer training classes for a number of years and have been out of the tech scene for about 5 years.
having observed application development now for about 20 years, i am floored by the lack of progress in application usability -- pretty much across the board (microsoft, apple, adobe, etc.).
if adobe would like someone to come in as an end-user advocate and help clean up the user procedures, really, give me a buzz.
There's a good Youtube video that explains how to copy and paste transitions. I needed to do this using the cube effect but wanted the effect in reverse. By placing the effect on one cut and changing the setting, I was able to copy the effect and quickly paste it to 70 slides using the DOWN key (on a pc).

If you use for example cross fade on 3 layers you will sometimes experience a transparency issue, especially if you work with logos etc..
The solution is:
You have 2 possibilities:
1- IF EVERYTHING HAS TO HAVE A TRANSITION, A fade in of the timeline or a fade out of the timeline, when you have a BG image, A logo and a bunch of text layers (because they all have to be animated seperately and you don't have time for AE) ? -> Put your transition on an ADJUSTMENT LAYER over everything. You can use this technique for lots of stuff.
2- IF YOU CREATE A "COMPLEX" BANNER, TITLE ... BUT THE MAIN VIDEO SHOULD STAY AS IT IS, Like with interviews, you create a banner for the title and there are 3 layers (BG, Title & Logo) you want that all to fade in, move in, slide in..etc...? -> Use NEST SEQUENCE, By NESTING you can Group all those layers but still can edit them later if the client decides that his name should be bold, bigger, yellow etc...) and you can then simply apply the wanted transition to that NEST.
PS: For all of those who use both AE & PR never forget the benefits of a nested sequence (premiere) or composition (after effects)!! Can be very handy and timesaving!
Hope that was helpful
