Add Special Transitions and Effects to Videos

Video transitions are the visual movements between two video clips, and the joining of those clips is the transition from one photo or video to the next one. Transitions effects can be an instant scene or image change, a fade, dissolve, 3D rotate or any digital effect.

When you want to enrich your personalized videos, transition plays a very important role by giving a blending effect when the scene changes.

Step 2: Set special video transition effect

After importing photos, go to "Organize Tab", and you will find transition effects are inserted between every two photos/videos automatically and randomly. Then you can choose from 5 categories of transitions effects (3D, Alpha, Fade, Slide and Smooth) as you like. Click one transition effect to play and preview, and choose your desired effect by double-clicking or drag and drop it between two video clips. By default, the video transition duration is 2.0 second, but you could set the effect by double-clicking it in the Storyboard.

Here I choose the Fade transition where the first scene appears to be faded out gradually while fading in the next scene.
