Using the Transition Editor

In Avid, you use an Effect Editor window to make changes to effects. In FCP, you can make some changes to transitions directly in the Timeline using the CTRL+click method discussed earlier. To edit transitions with greater precision, you can open the transition from the Timeline, just as you would open a clip. This is where the FCP Viewer begins to take on a more universal role, letting you do more than just view source material.

Figure 12 Avid Effect Editor.

To edit a transition:

  • Double-click the transition in the Timeline. The transition name appears on a tab in the Viewer, along with the options that are available for that transition.

Any change you make in the Transition Editor window is immediately active in the Timeline. If rendering is required, that is done in a separate step.
