Add Transition

Transitions are often between two video clips. We all have seen videos that obscurely joined together without any sense of beauty. Adding transitions between clips will avoid this issue and make your videos a lot smoother. The following are the steps to add a transition for a video:

  1. First, determine where to add a transition in a video clip and split the video.
  2. Click the Fade in/out icon at the start or end of the video clip, and then click the Back icon.
  3. Then, a Transition icon will be shown at the split position. Click the icon to enter the transition screen.
  4. Choose the transition effect you like and set the transition duration.
  5. Click the Back button to save the transition changes.
