HOWTO: Using Effects as Transitions in Premiere Pro
From the blog:
Over on Creative Cow’s Premiere Pro forum, user Jaysin Osterkamp asked, “where is the white flash transition in Premiere Pro?” This transition is a common effect used by editors, but is not included in Premiere Pro. So, what do you do in this situation? My advice is to create your own transition using video effects.
There are a couple of ways to create a transition from an effect, one involves the use of transparency to reveal the incoming clip. This typically requires that you overlap the clips on two different video tracks. The other way to create a transition from an effect is to ramp up controls to obscure the incoming clip, then ramp those controls back down to reveal it. In this case, it is not necessary to overlap the clips.
