    Adobe Premiere CS6 smooth dissolve and opacity work around solved

    jercharger81

      I have heard a lot of people having problems getting a smooth transition dissolve or opacity change. The last 10% of your dissolve seems to abruptly end.

      Well until adobe fixes this problem i have a workaround that will make it smooth.

        the clip you want to dissolve you make a key frame on the opacity and make it 100% and then where you want it to end you make a key frame and set it to a low opacity like 10% or less

        so you can barely see it, ( depending on how dark or light your clip is) then you make a third keyframe about 6-9 frames down the timeline to bring it down to 0%.

      This will make a nice smooth fade out at the end.

        Play with the settings but that third key frame is key to extend that last little bit of fade a few frames longer.

      i sometimes will even extend that keyframe about 10 frames further down the timeline for a super smooth dissolve.

      Hope this helps!
