A transition is something you add between TWO clips. You don’t add a Transition on a clip. You add a Transition BETWEEN two clips.
- By controlling how much the two clips overlap, you can control how fast or how slow the transition is.
- To increase the overlap, just slide the second clip more into the first clip. To decrease the overlap, just slide the second clip out more from the first clip.
- Transitions add a nice touch. But don’t overdo it. It’s only striking if you use it sparingly. Do you see fancy transitions on professional Holywood movies?
- The transition I use the most is the simple Dissolve.
- To dissolve one clip to the next, I can either drag down the Dissolve transition from the Video Transitions Collection to my timeline, or I can simply slide the second clip into the first clip. If I sound Greek to you, please preview the video on Overlapping Video Clips.
