User-added imageUser-added image

Transitions can help your movie switch smoothly from one scene to the next. They can be applied to single clips or in between clips on all tracks in the Timeline. Effective use of this feature can add a professional touch to your movie.

There are 16 types of transitions in the Library. For every type, you choose a specific preset effect by using the thumbnails.

To add a transition

In the Corel VideoStudio Pro Editor, do one of the following: Click Transitions in the Library and select from various categories of transitions from the drop-down list. Scroll through the transitions in the Library. Select and drag an effect between two video clips in the Timeline. Drop your effect and it will snap into place. Note: You can only drag and drop one transition at a time. Double-click a transition in the Library to automatically insert it into the first empty transition slot between two clips. Repeat this process to insert a transition at the next cut. To replace a transition in your project, drag the new transition onto the transition thumbnail for replacement in the Storyboard View or Timeline View. Overlap two clips in the Timeline.

To add a transition automatically Select Settings > Preferences > Edit, then select Automatically add transition effect. Choose a transition effect from the Default transition effect drop-down menu. The default transition is added automatically between clips. Note: A default transition is always added automatically between overlapping clips, whether the automatically add transition effect in Preferences is enabled or not.

To add a selected transition to all video track clips Select the thumbnail of the transition. Click the Apply current effect to video track button or right-click on the transition and select Apply current effect to video track.
