1. Before You Begin
Since our transitions were made on a different computer, Premiere Pro needs to remember the way to the necessary media files. Do the following:
- Unzip the file.
- In the folder – open the .prproj file with the resolution you are planning use later.
- Re-save this project file.
- Close the project.
These actions will enable Premiere Pro to remember the way to the required sound FX files and other media files that are included in the package. This must be done only once.
If you do not do this, then every time you import the transitions to your project, you will receive a “Missing Media” warning.
2. Importing transitions into a Project
Select the .prproj file (that you saved earlier) that corresponds to the resolution of your project in Premiere Pro and drop it to the panel of your project.
To select the desired transition, open folder with sub-category. To see the preview of transition, set the Icon View mode.
3. Configuring the Project Sequence
To correctly use transitions, you need to configure the sequence properly. To do this, do the following:
- Enable the ability to insert layers from other sequences.
- Select the transition in the project panel.
- Disable the insert for the first video track (V1) – since this track contains a layer with video preview.
4.Importing a Transition into a Sequence
- Drag and drop the transition sequence into your sequence.
- The transition peak is indicated by a cut. Move the layers of the preset along the timeline so that the transition peak coincides with the joint of your two media.
Note! If transition does not work or looks broken – make sure that resolution of imported presets matches the resolution of your project.
For example, if you imported a file with transitions “Transitions – FullHD 1920×1080.prproj”, in a project in which the resolution of your sequence has a resolution of 3840×2160 (4K), the transitions will not work.
