Adding transitions to your project ratchets it up several notches. It also can distract viewers. Judicious use of transitions is the best use. Premiere offers more than 70 transitions that you easily can add to your project by simply dragging them to edit points. If there aren't enough tail or head frames for a sufficiently long overlap to make a smooth transition, Premiere will turn those last and first frames of video into a collection of freeze frames. Most Premiere transitions have several customization features, including adding a border to better mark the transition line(s) between clip A and clip B, multiple motion options, and setting the number of objects?spinning boxes, expanding diamonds, Venetian blinds?within the transition.
