- Pick a transition from the transition panel.
- Right-Click that transition and chose "set selected default transition"
- With your timeline clips loaded - go to "Edit".
- In "Edit" choose "select all"
- Now, in "Edit" click "Apply Default Transition"
This will put your newly-selected default transition across all clips.
Had to play around with different things to find it. Saw "Apply Default Transition" in the Edit field, but it was grey (non selectable), but after figuring out the first few steps it became selectable.
Hopefully this will help other editors.
You ARE quick! I did not even see your post, until you had figured it all out.
One little keystroke, that might come in handy, is with the Timeline active, Ctrl+A will Select All. Not sure that there are any other keystrokes, that will speed up the other aspects of that operation.
Glad that you found it, and thank you for reporting those steps, as they will help others with the same question. Job well-done.
Set a keystroke for Apply Default Transition (I have it set to D)
Now it will even be faster.
Ctrl + A
If you just want the video applied with transitions hold Alt to lasso the video part.
Same goes for just the audio part.
For years, PrE did not have the Ctrl+D (Apply Default Transition at CTI), and I had not yet found that.
Although one can set Ctrl+D for apply default transition at CTI in the KC but somehow it does not work.
So lassoing a few clips and hitting D is faster then going to the dropdown menu.
Clips need to be but to but otherwise Apply Default Transition will not work.
