Setting transitions to 0, and working with short clips

Hi, I am using Premier Elements 18.  When I try to add a transition (for example, Cross Dissolve) I sometimes cannot set the duration to 0.  1 second is the lowest it goes.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  My clips are very short so the 1 second duration makes the video blurry because the transition is too long.

Is there a better way to work with very short (3 - 5 second) clips?

Thanks for any help on this,

Novice...

As I show you in my book, you can type in, for instance, 0.50 (be sure to include the 0 before the decimal point) to set the duration for under a second.

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your response.  I tried that but it doesn't work.  For some reason the minimum duration time is 1 second.  It does not seem to be a software installation problem because it happens both on my Mac and Windows 10 computers.  Sometimes I can set it to 0 other times I can't.  I have not figured out when it works or not.

Wait. What? You're setting it to zero?

There's no such thing as a transition with zero duration.

Though I was mistaken. You also can not set duration to less than 1 second. I was thinking of a different editing program.

I can set transitions to 0 duration even though it does not make logical sense.  The 0 setting is smoother than no transition but more crisp than a 1 second setting (at least that is what I perceive).  Premier Elements just does not allow me to do it all of the time.
