Add Transition Effects

Adding transitions to your video helps to improve its flow. You can apply transitions to single clips or in between all of the clips on the timeline in Filmora for Mac.

  • Click into the Transitionstab to see the available transitions. Double-click on transitions you'd like to preview.
  • Once you find a transition you want to use in your project, drag and drop it to the desired location on the timeline.

  • Instead of dragging and dropping a transition you can also place the playhead at the exact spot on the timeline where you want to add a transition, right-click on a transition you want to add, and select Apply.
  • You can also use the Apply to all option if you would like to add the same transition to all video clips in your project. To add a random transition to all video clips, choose Random to All.
  • To delete a transition, highlight it and click the Delete button in the toolbar above Timeline, or press Delete key on the keyboard.
  • If you especially love a transition, you can add it to Favorite by right clicking transition in the list and selecting "Add to Favorites" from the menu.

Keep in mind that if you are applying a transition, you need to make sure that you've placed a video clip on the timeline.

You can add a transition to the start (prefix transition) or the end (postfix transition) of any video or image on the timeline, or add transitions between clips.
