Is there some quick way to apply/place transitions in the timeline (eg. cross dissolve, exponential fade) instead of drag n dropping them? I ask cause when there are a lot to place, this drag n drop action, is a pain in the neck! 🙂
Yes, there are keyboard shortcuts for default video transition and default audio transition.
Set those to the ones you want to use at the moment. Change the default transitions any time you want by right-clicking a transition, "set default ... "
Thank you Neil. Actually im not certain if i can do this on my case. Here is my case as i want it to be.
Have you tried selecting the clips, then using the keyboard shortcut? It will work with multiple clips selected, to all the clips selected.
You have to do separate actions for the video and audio of course.
Its not working. In the screenshot i sent, im trying to make a fade from clip to a richblack screen and the cross disolve will only land on the clip. It will not land on the richblack screen. So as seen in the screenshot, there is a xross dissolve only on the video. Im not sure if i can do this alternatively so that the transition will be both on the video and the richblack screen.
This "Insufficient media. This transition will contain repeated frames" is a warning i get when placing a CrossDissolve" between two clips on the timeline... what does it mean?
You don't have 'handles'. Transitions need media to work on ... because, remember, the image needs to start by the place you apply the transition. So the "in" point on the clip needs to be at least the length of the transition past the actual beginning of the clip.
Cant i place a transition on the beggining of a clip? Are begginings and endings the places that do no have handles? Am i correct on this?
what does it mean?
Check the links I posted earlier:
everything about editing is a pain in the neck.

I stack my stuff with exact frames ( cut with no handles ) and do transitions manually. That way I am the one who decides what I see as a result.... not some extra stuff that is used by a program to determine the transition in and out.
You wouldn't believe how a pain in the neck is, until you try to shoot and edit stuff with various digital motion picture film sources.
hang in there.... it's usually OK to just drag stuff in using handles and looks OK but trying to make it FASTER is incredibly lazy and stupid .... hehe... if I was your age I'd probably want something like that too... it cracks me up ( LMO )
I tried to edit my message cause it was stupid of me to say 'lazy and stupid'... but I couldn't change ( edit) the message.... so the revised sentence is:
Is lazy ... ( without stupid , cause that can be contrued as mean or something ... instead of being normal vocubulary for me... where I often call myself stupid and an idiot etc. )
