Are you sure that your video track is targeted?
I will also confirm that Apple D does not apply the default transition to the selected clips. It does from the menu but the short cut does not
I also had this problem for one editing session. Several of the shortcuts would not work for some reason, though I could achieve the same ends via other means.
I never did figure out what was happening.
Show of hands: Who is trying this with:
- only one clip selected in the timeline
- multiple clips selected
- one or more edit points selected
What I'm finding is that the shortcut works consistently when you have edit point(s) or multiple clips selected--even if the selected clips are not contiguous or not even on the same track--but it never works when only one clip is selected. Moreover, when multiple non-contiguous clips are selected, the results are inconsistent.
Incidentally, contrary to what dkardell reports, the behavior is consistent with the shortcut vs. Sequence>Apply Video Transition.
I confess I'm not sure what the expected behavior is with this command, but the current state of affairs is at the very least unpredictable. After the company break, I'll investigate further--and check whether this is a known issue, possibly even fixed in the upcoming patch...
I think I see what's going on here. In Premiere Pro CC, we can now select a range of clips and apply the default transition on them all at once using the keyboard shortcut. This was only possible in CS6 with a menu command.
So it kind of makes sense that it doesn't work with only one clip selected.
Another handy new feature that was never touted before release.
