Andrew, do you realize your use of dip to black in lieu of a fade to black results in a fade that is half as long as you want? IOW, the fade begins, or completes half way through the transition. Just because its at the beginning or end doesn't make it a fade. It still dips to black, but it just happens that its dipping from back, to black, to video. Or at the end, it dips from video, to black, to black.

Great series btw!

Hi Bret

Good point!! Thanks for pointing that out - sometimes you just grab and go and so it is easy to miss the best/right solution ... :o)

All the best

Hi Richard

I'm not sure I have ever saved a transition as a custom preset, however, you can change the system default length of a transition from your preferences>general panel under the 'video transition default duration' option. This is in frames so can be changed to any default length you want.

Then, when you apply a transition it will always come in at the new length you set regardless of which transition it is.

Also, if you have already applied transitions before you change the default length they will not be affected, only new transitions after you make the change will reflect that change.

Hope this is some help

I am using CS6 and like a lot of editors I find that a 30 frame transition is not always desirable. I tend to use dissolves that are 10 and 12 frames long. I know how to do this, but I would like to save them so i dont have to continuously go into effects and change them. When i have a project that has 50 or so dissolves, this tends to get time consuming. CS5 let me save them to a Custom Bin in my effects panel, but i cannot figure out how to do it in CS6. thanks for you help.

The 'Rate Stretch' tool is a great way of fitting clips into your timeline that may be slightly too long or slightly too short for the gap you have for them.
