Chapter 10. Creating Movies Using Movie ... > Adding Transitions Between Clips

Adding Transitions Between Clips

A transition is an effect that provides a smoother, more gradual change between clips in a movie. A transition plays before one clip ends while another starts to play. You can add a transition between two video clips, pictures, or titles on the storyboard or timeline. In the Video Transition folder, Movie Maker provides a variety of transitions that you can add to a movie project, such as Bars, Diamond, Fan Up, and Shatter In.

Adding a Transition

Click the Locations list arrow on the toolbar, and then click Video Transitions.

Click the Show Storyboard button or Show Timeline button.

To view the Transition track in the timeline, click the plus sign (+) next to the Video track in the timeline.

Drag a transition to the video transition cell in the storyboard or between the two clips in the timeline.

To increase the transition duration in the timeline, drag the beginning of the transition towards the beginning of the timeline.

To decrease the transition duration in the timeline, drag the beginning of the transition towards the end of the timeline.
