Playhead

is located
in the
T
imeline
, Premiere Pro will give you the option of Inserting your footage or
Overwriting
existing
footage.


*Note: When superimposing clips, you may wish to lock your tracks in the
Timeline

so clips are
not accidentally shifted or overwritten.


Editing a

Clip in the Timeline


1. To slice a clip, select the
Blade Tool
from the
Tools Palette.
Move

the
Playhead
to where you would like to make a slice and click on the clip.

H
. Adding Video Transitions


A transition moves a scene from one shot to the next. Generally, you use a
simple cut to move from shot to shot, but in some cases you might want to
transition

between shots by phasing out one and phasing in another. Premiere
Pro provides many transitions that you can apply to your sequence. A transition
can be a subtle crossfade or a stylized effect, such as a page turn or spinning
pinwheel. While you usually p
lace a transition on a cut line between shots, you
can also apply a transition to only the beginning or end of a clip.


By default, placing one clip next to another in a Timeline panel results in a
cut
,
where the last frame of one clip is simply followed b
y the first frame of the next.
When you want to emphasize or add a special effect to a scene change, you can
add any of a variety of
transitions
, such as wipes, zooms, and dissolves. Apply
transitions to the timeline using the Effects panel, and edit them
using the
Timeline and the Effect Controls panel.


1.To add a
video
transition, open up the
Effects Panel
. It should be docked with
the
Project Panel
.


2.
Choose a transition from the
Video Transitions
folder. Drag it on top of the

clip
(
s
)

you would li
ke to transition. To change the length or other characteristics
of

the transition, double click on it and a new menu with editable functions will

appear in the
Effects Control Panel
.


3. To remove a transition, simply delete it from the timeline.


4. Yo
u can also apply a default transition to all of the clips in your sequence. To
do so, highlight all of the clips in your sequence. From the
Sequence Menu
choose >
Apply Default Transitions to Selection
.

do so, highlight al
l of the clips in y
our sequence, and f

Apply Default Transitions to Selection
.


Note: The default transition is a 1 second cross dissolve. To change the default transition,
choose the transition and right click the mouse and select
Set Selected

Default Transition
.

AS YOU WORK THROUGH YOUR EDIT, MAKE SURE TO SAVE OFTEN.**


J
. Creating New
Sequences


A sequence is a container for a series of clips that play one after another,
sometimes with multiple blended layers, and often with special effe
cts, titles, and
audio, to produce a completed film.


Premiere Pro allows unlimited sequences for each project. Each sequence can
handle up to 99 track of video and 99 tracks of audio.


There are two ways to create a new sequence.

he elements needed to create your
finished video. It can contain individual video clips, audio clips, titles, photos and
graphical images. When you import new items they appear automatically in the
project panel.


The project panel also contains
sequences
,

which include all the data in a
particular timeline. When you create a new project, the project panel contains a
single sequence called
Sequence 01
.



The monitor panels are where you view video clips and edited video sequences.
