Adding Transitions in Premiere

Chapter Description

In this sample chapter, you'll create a short prelude to a television program about dreams, using transitions between clips, special effects, and precisely trimmed clips.

Exporting the movie

  1. Click in the Timeline window to select it.

  2. Choose File > Export Timeline > Movie.

  3. In the Export Movie dialog box, click the Settings button. Make sure QuickTime is selected for the File Type and Entire Project is selected for the Range.

  4. Also make sure that the Export Video option is selected and the Export Audio option is not selected. The default values for other settings, including those for compression, are fine for this project.

    Use the Save and Load buttons in the Export Movie Settings dialog box to save and later quickly load export settings that you use frequently. Loading saved settings is particularly useful when you create several types of video files (for example, NTSC and Web video) from the same project.

  5. Click OK to close the Export Movie Settings dialog box.

  6. In the Export Movie dialog box, type Dream.mov for the name of the video program.

    Click Save (Windows) or OK (Mac OS).

    Premiere starts making the movie, displaying a status bar that provides an estimate for the amount of time it will take.

  7. When the video program is complete, it's opened in a Clip window. Click the Play button () to watch what you've just created. You may notice that some frames are dropped during playback. This depends on the system you are using and also the frame rate at which the movie was exported.

Congratulations on completing the Transitions Lesson!
