Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use transitions when you don't have enough handle, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Better Transitions.
- We've already discussed the concept of handles,…essentially overlapping frames that we use…to create the transition.…Let's explore what to do when you don't have a handle.…In this case here, I'm gonna apply a transition.…Let's choose just a video transition.…You'll note that that transition…was not placed in a centered fashion.…It seems to have a shorter start and a longer end.…Well, if I double-click on that,…you'll see that it's a bit shorter.…
Instead of being a second long,…it lost a little bit off the top.…Well, that's because we don't have enough handle.…If I try to make this transition longer by pulling,…you'll note that I can't.…It doesn't have adequate media.…It's warning me,…but I'm at the maximum duration there.…If I try to drag this, doesn't move.…Sure, I can extend this here on the back end,…unless, of course, there's no media on that side.…
So in this particular case, we've run out of media.…Let's remove that effect for a second…and just look at these clips.…Note here if I drag that out,…there's only a few extra frames there,…
