As the title implies, I made some changes to the default transition time, and I cant remember the original values.

How can I reset the preferences and set them back to their original values?

Thanks.

It differs by Adobe program, but I think that it's hold down Shift as you launch, and keep holding it down. If that is incorrect for PrPro, I'm sure that someone will correct me. In PS, one gets a dialog box, asking if they wish to reset the Prefs. I don't think that PrPro provides that screen, but could be incorrect.Good luck,Hunt

Basically you are correct, Bill. Just hold down the SHIFT key while starting PR untill the splash screen appears. There are no messages.

Why reset all preferences if you only want to change the Transition Default.

Its a simple prefence menu setting.

Holding down SHIFT worked to reset the preferences, but it did pop up a message asking if I wanted to reset. I don't know if this works in all versions - Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2019 is what I have.

As Shooter said, why make a fuss of this. Just set your preferences to 60 frames or 150 or whatever you like for the default transition duration. Make sure that your scratch disks and media cache files are pointed at the right directory.

Shift only clears the plug-in cache.  To reset all of your preferences, use the technique shown here:

Hi Jeff,

The link you indicated,
http://blogs.adobe.com/genesisproject/2009/11/having_weird_behavior_with_an.html

Has this suggestion for deleting the PC Adobe preferences info:


http://blogs.adobe.com/genesisproject/2009/11/having_weird_behavior_with_an.html

Just to confirm, is this the name of the folder that needs to be deleted in order to reset the settings?

C:\Users\[insert appropriate user name]\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro/5.0

Thanks


Rowby

A faster way to do that is to hold down the Alt key while you launch Pr.  Keep holding it down until you see the Pr Welcome Screen.

Having the same problem with a project. However it opens fine in a slightly older version of premiere. I guess I updated the program recently and it won't open.

PLEASE HELP!

Did you have any success with figuring out what is going on?

I have a similar problem. I deleted my user settings and no longer getting the "low-level exception" error in the event viewer, but footage is still not performing as it should.

Getting very slow response and an unspecified error when trying to generate a preview.

Thanks,

Bart
