  3. Click Flash.
  4. Use the Onset % and Offset % sliders to select the percentage of the transition that each phase of the WhiteFlash takes.
    • Onset — duration of the dissolve to the WhiteFlash color.
    • Offset — duration of the dissolve to the preset video source.
    • Hold — duration of the dissolve that the WhiteFlash color is held. This value is the residual of entire duration minus the onset and offset.
  5. Select a default or custom color for the WhiteFlash.

    • Custom — click the arrow to the right of the Matte Color area and use the Hue, Saturation, and Lightness sliders to select your own color. Click OK to apply the color or Live to apply it in real-time.
