Adding Clip Transitions
Sometimes the shift from one clip to another can be a little too quick. Rather than jarring viewers with a sudden change, transitions let you move the viewer smoothly by blending the end of one clip with the beginning of another.
To apply a transition:
- Click the Transitions button to open the Transitions browser. Hold your cursor over each transition to preview it.
- Select a transition from the Transitions browser and drag it between two clips in your project. Be sure the vertical green line appears before you release the mouse button.
- Click the “Play Project from beginning” button to see the transition effect.
- Click the square transition icon preceding the first clip to select the transition; then choose Edit > Set Duration. When the Duration dialog appears, set the duration for the transition and decide whether the duration time should apply only to the selected transition or to all transitions in your project.
