Adding Multiple Transitions in Final Cut Pro 7

Final_Cut_Studio_3.gif

A new feature in Final Cut 7 is the ability to apply a transition to more than one edit at the same time.

You can do this by simply highlighting a range of clips in an entire sequence and then press Command T to apply the default transition to every transition point.

If there isn't enough available media, the transition duration will be adjusted automatically. You can then adjust, delete, or change selected transitions after if you choose.

For example if you were to apply a 30 frame cross dissolve to every edit in a sequence, you could go in and change the individual durations of each transition by right clicking on each transition and change the duration.

You could also delete the ones that you want to be cuts. For example if you have 50 edits and you are going to want 35 cross dissolves, it would be faster to put cross dissolves on every edit, and then delete the ones you want to be cuts.

If you know which ones they are, you can command click on each transition, and then delete them all at once.

Just a reminder that when deleting a transition, you want to use the big delete key (backspace key) a.k.a. lift edit, and not the little delete key (down and to the right of the backspace key, or shift backspace) a.k.a. ripple delete. The reason is that a ripple delete will also delete the media associated to the transition.

For those of you that don't have Final Cut Pro 7, and want to be able to apply multiple transitions with earlier versions of Final Cut Pro, there is a work around to accomplish this. Check out this article written back in 2006.
