Transitions overview

You can add cross dissolves and other transition effects between cuts to make your program more interesting.

Transitions replace one shot with another over a specified period of time; when one shot ends, another one replaces it. Three very common video transitions occur over time: fades, cross dissolves, and wipes.

You can add audio-only transitions to audio edits in a connected storyline. These transitions can be either a fade-in, fade-out, or crossfade.

Note: When a transition is added to a video clip with attached audio, a crossfade transition is automatically applied to the audio. If the audio is detached or expanded from the video, the audio is not affected by the video transition.
