Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video What are clip handles?, part of Premiere Pro Guru: Better Transitions.
- When it comes to creating transitions,…one of the key things you need are handles.…Handles are the parts of clips that overlap.…Now, for many of you who work with Premiere Pro…or really any NLE, you're used to this concept,…but we couldn't start to take a deep look at transitions…without understanding how handles behave.…So let's get that out of the way.…If we zoom in here on the timeline,…you'll note that this first clip…has no extra handles on the end.…These little tags that you see…at the left and right edge of the clip…indicate that the clip is at the end of the media.…
These little corner tags tell you…that there are no extra frames that can be accessed.…So, for example, if we try to add a transition here,…let's just take the Selection tool,…and we'll right-click and apply the default transitions.…You'll notice the transition ends where the shot ends.…That transition, by default, can't be moved…or repositioned to be centered…because there are no actual frames.…
The shot ends here.…Now if we go a little bit further,…
