dip to white?

Hello all mighty DVinfo community, I once again have a question.
I'm trying to find a way in Premiere Pro to dip to white (i guess that thats the correct term).
Basically I'm looking to crossfade to white but not in a way where i would just cross dissolve to a white matte or jpeg. I would like the highlights to blow out first.
Does anyone have any idea what i'm talking about?
I've heard that this can be achieved using the levels filter; however i require a bit more help than that.
Could anyone provide me more info?
Thanks in advance for all of your help!

Isn't there a transition called "additive dissolve"? If you did that to a white still, that may do what you are looking for....not sure though.

I don't know which version of Premiere you have, but in CS3, you can type 'dip' into the effects search box and POW! up comes 'dip to black' and 'dip to white'.
Barring that, you can use the proc amp to bring up the brightness and contrast on the clip (keyframed to the last few frames), and for smoothness, do the reverse effect on the next clip (start with high contrast and brightness, then bring it back to normal over the space of a few keyframes). You can even throw in a short dissolve between them (be sure not to cover up the entire effect with a long dissolve).

Another way is to create a white solid and then cross fade to that image.

I second that suggestion.

In CS3, in your effects panel, expand "Video Transitions" then go to the "Dissolve" tree. Fourth down is "Dip to White" and it'll give you exactly what you want...

IMHO the default Premiere dip to white doesn't look very nice and rich.

If you don't mind a trip to after effects, you can easily make a much more stylish "camera flash" transition with combination of Levels and (Fast) Blur - blow your levels way up (that's the dip part) and apply blur to get that flashy look. The whole transition looks best when only 5-7 frames long.

I think this has something to do with what you are looking for :

the end of the free "floating point overview" tutorial on this page deals with using floating point in AE to create more interesting fades
