    Is there a way to ‘easy-ease’ the dissolve transition in Premiere without having to do opacity keyframing? Linear dissolves look abrupt at their start and finish. Vegas has a gradual acceleration and deceleration progress curve at the end/beginning of the default dissolve and DaVinci allows you to change the default to an easy-ease dissolve. I personally can’t imagine when I would want a transition to be linear.

    Hey Tim,

    Yes, it would be nice if there was a smarter way of editing transitions inside Premiere Pro, like using belzier.

    However, do consider using presets if you make up your own.
    These will allow you to custom create your own transition and save it in the preset panel.
    Adobe has got a guide for saving them here.

    There is also a large number of plug-ins, and preset providers, who might straight out of the box offer you what you are looking for.
    Some have free versions, just need to go search for them.

    I use BorisFX, MotionArray and Cinepunch – it is a bit like deciding on your streamer what to watch, rather than watching an actual program – as in that you can spend a lot of time looking through all the variations, without actually doing any work 😉

    Is your sequence set for “Composite in Linear Color” in sequence settings?

    Use Film Impact dissolve plugins, they all have curves to adjust the easing
