The TransitionTrack is a track of sound of the next scene that starts up at the very end of the previous scene. This track is said to "bleed" into the previous scene.

Required for a SplitEdit. Bonus points if the track matches the mood or words at the end of the other scene. For instance, if a character has just been let down, and sad violin music pipes up. Cut to a fancy restaurant where the sad music is being played by the house entertainment.

* In ''ShakuganNoShana'', just as Yuuji is about to [[spoiler:cast a Fuzetsu, the scene cuts to Margery yelling [[CallingYourAttacks "Fuzetsu!"]].]]

* ''{{Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade}}''. As Indiana and his father are looking at the signpost to Berlin, we hear a marching drumbeat. The scene shifts to Berlin, where Nazis are marching around a pile of burning books with martial music playing.
* Used in'' LawrenceOfArabia'' when the scene cuts from the banks of the Suez Canal to a busy street in downtown Cairo.

* A very good example of a non-musical TransitionTrack happens in the last episode of ''MySoCalledLife''. Patty is trying to tell her family about her dream, but they all leave before she can. She utters what she dreamed about, and we hear an off-screen "Seriously?" as though someone was answering her. Cut to the next scene, where the character who voiced the sentiment talks about another girl's dream.
