Can I leave gaps in my timeline between clips to add extra transition between scenes? Or does the timeline have to closed?

Yes, using CS8. I forgot to upload my screenshot. I'm new to this software but I'd like there to be a longer transition between the two clips below, and the only way I've found so far is to have a gap between the clips. I just don't know if that is allowed, if it will mess up the video at the end.

thanks for screenshot

no need to add the gap

add the transition at clip boundaries, then drag out the transition to the duration you want

Thanks for your help but that seems to only transition the video, the sound keeps playing during the transition.

You have to split the clips if you want that to happen. Highlight the audio at the point you want to silence at and press 's'.

do you want the audio [sound] to pause at same time while the transition takes place?

try using a frame extension to spread out the video to allow for the time gap in audio

you may want to separate audio from video so you can put a gap in the audio track

as I'm not sure what is happening at start of second video clip in your screenshot, but you could add a frame extension at start on 2nd video clip to add the required gap in audio
