- Hi, my name is Rich Harrington, and welcome to this course on creating better transitions. When it comes to Premiere Pro, there are lots of ways to add transitions. There are, of course, the traditional methods of using the actual transition effects. But you can use filters or standard effects, and stacking techniques as well, plus there is a slew of third-party options out there. In this course, we're going to explore best practices, some creative ideas and things that maybe you haven't used before, as well as how to maximize the tools that you probably use every single day.
If you take a look at some of the other Premiere Pro guru courses, our objective is to help you really dig deeper into some of the core features that you need to get the job done. So, with that in mind, we're going to explore transitions today. Remember, a transition is something that you use to signify a change in space or time. With this in mind, let's start to explore what could be done when we add transitions between clips.
- Applying transitions between clips
- Positioning transitions in the Timeline
- Customizing default transitions
- Trimming shots
- Combining effects and transitions
- Creating a blur transition
- Creating and applying custom gradients
- Saving transition presets
- Working with third-party transition plugins like Red Giant and CoreMelt
