Add a Transition
Transitions add a visual effect between the end of a clip and the beginning of the next clip. Use transitions to indicate the passage of time, change in location, to call attention, or to create a smooth flow between clips. Random Dissolve and Fade through Black are commonly used transitions.
Transitions may add to the total file size. Use a straight cut from one clip to another to avoid increasing the total file size.
You can only insert a transition between two clips on the Timeline. Videos cannot begin or end with a transition.
- In the Task List, select Transitions.
Tip! You can also insert a transition by pressing <T>. Camtasia Studio adds a fade transition or the last used transition. To change the transition, right-click on the transition and select Change Transition.
- The Transitions pane appears. Double-click on a transition to view the transition in the Preview Window.
- Drag the transition onto the Storyboard. A transition thumbnail appears between the clips on the Storyboard.
- Click Finished.
To change the default duration for transitions, select Tools > Options > Program tab.
