Yes, you have to add transitions after cutting. If you learn the keyboard shorcuts for doing this, you can do it very quickly. For example, a couple of weeks ago, I had a 6-minute video with more than 60 cuts. I wanted dissolve between all of them. I set dissolve as the default transition then CTRL > D then Page Down. I applied all the dissolves in less than 30 seconds. Try it.
Thanks for that Stanley ....I do use the Page down and inset very fast
......but I have got 24 dances from a dance school to do and thought I saw
somewhere that you could set the transition for the whole section...... if I
find it I will post back ....thanks again .
You probably mean 'automate to sequence'. This is adding clips to an excisting sequence with or without default transitions.
But you can't use that in a mulitcam setting.
I'd leave the dissolves out anyway. Looks very amateurish. Leave them as cuts.
That's pretty subjective, Jim. It completely depends on the material and the effect. For example, my shots were all sports replays with a lot of speed ramping, all starting and ending with a freeze frame. A quick dissolve between each denotes a new replay, not a continuation of the last one (since most of them had 2-3 different cam angles. Sometimes a dissolve really is what I want.
Yes I know what you mean ....I am a cut only person .I hate all the weird <br />effect transitions......But with a slow dance number it does look nice with <br />a dissolve rather than a cut ......<br /><br />at least I know not to bother looking.... thanks<br /><br />Mike<br /><br /><br /><Jim_Simon@adobeforums.com> wrote in message <br />news:email@example.comNXanI...<br />> I'd leave the dissolves out anyway.
