Using the Default Transitions in Adobe Premiere

Premiere has default video and audio transitions which can be added to clips in various ways. This can be much more efficient if you use the same transitions a lot.

By default, these transitions are Cross-Dissolve for video and Constant Power (crossfade) for audio.

To Apply the Default Transition

To Change the Default Transition

Open the Effects window (Window > Effects). Expand the Video Transitions or Audio Transitions bin. You will notice that the default transition is indicated by a red border.

Select the desired transition. Click the options button (top right of the Effects window) and choose Set Default Transition.

Effects Window Options Menu

From this menu you can also select Default Transition Duration to change the length of the default transition.
