What is Shift + D in Premiere Pro?

Shift + D (Windows) or Cmd + D (Mac) is the keyboard shortcut for “Apply Default Transitions to Selection” in Adobe Premiere Pro. This shortcut is used to apply a default transition to all of the selected clips in the timeline.

A default transition is a transition that is automatically applied to all clips in a sequence. This can be a quick and easy way to add transitions to all of your clips without having to apply them individually.

To use this shortcut, simply select the clips you want to apply the transition to and then press Shift + D.

The Apply Default Transition dialog box will appear. In this dialog box, you can select the type of default transition you want to apply and the duration of the transition.

Here are some of the different types of default transitions you can apply:

  • Crossfade: This transition crossfades between two clips over a specified duration.
  • Dip to black: This transition fades the video to black and then back to the original clip over a specified duration.
  • Wipe: This transition wipes between two clips over a specified duration.
  • Push: This transition pushes one clip away from the other clip over a specified duration.
  • Reveal: This transition reveals one clip by pushing it away from the other clip over a specified duration.
  • Iris: This transition reveals one clip by opening an iris over it over a specified duration.
  • Zoom: This transition zooms in on one clip and then zooms out to reveal the other clip over a specified duration.

Once you have selected the type of default transition you want to apply and the duration of the transition, click the “OK” button. The transition will be applied to all of the selected clips.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when using this shortcut:

  • If you have not selected any clips, the shortcut will have no effect.
  • If you have selected some clips but not all of them, the transition will only be applied to the selected clips.
  • If you have already applied a transition to the selected clips, the shortcut will not apply another transition.
  • You can customize your default transitions in the Timeline Settings panel.
