How To Add Video Transitions

Improve your video editing skills by using transitions. VideoStudio Pro has numerous transition styles built into the software for you to easily add to your edits. So instead of just cuts you could use dips to white, fades to black, cross dissolves, or wipes of different angles and shapes. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses and some work better than others in different situations. Learn how to apply them below, then have fun experimenting with your videos.

You can add transitions between clips or between photos. Transitions can be used to fade in or fade out or to dissolve one photo into the next. There are many transition options to choose from.
