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.

* A very good example of a non-musical TransitionTrack happens in the last episode of ''Series/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.
