I know how to use handles and everything like that.
I was just wondering, is there a way where Premiere Pro CS 6 does not use handles for transitions?
In other words, I have a clip and I'm using every frame of it and I put another clip next to it and it has no handles either. I want to put a crossfade between them. I know without handles this will not work.
I had read somewhere that Premiere can just use the media at the end and beginning of the 2 clips to make the transition.
Is this true?
On an old edtitng system I used to work on, this is how it was. There was no need for handles.
Thanks in Advance
The logic of a transition is that it needs handles ( ie extra frames) so it can buiild the transition with them.
If your other app did this automatically ..it must have used a freeze frame of the last frame and built the transition as a static.
Is that what you are wanting to do?
Its easy to do but a different technique is involved.
You could layer the clips and use opacity key frames to fade A out while B fades in to achieve the dissolve/crossfade.
To clarify what Bingo said.
Overlap the clips on 2 video Layers... and apply Opacity FXto each of them.
That is also a clear way to see what handles mean in "the old fashioned way" What we called A/B or Checkerboard editing.
