  • slide 1 of 1

    This is part four of the Colorful Movie Editor series. In this part of the series, I will show you how to apply transition effects to your video you are creating. You will need to click the Transition tab at the top of your window to switch to this section. In the transition section, you will see all of the different transitions available and you will see the preview of the transitions. There are 14 transitions available for you to use.

    Adding the Transition to your Storyboard in Colorful Movie Editor

    In your storyboard, you will see the small squares between each video clip or photo. This is where you will add the transitions. Click a transition in the transition window and drag it to the slot of your choice. Then add the transitions to the other slots. Once you have all of your slots filled in, you can preview your video in the player to view the transitions.

    Deleting a Transition Effect in Colorful Movie Editor

    If you want to delete a transition and replace it with another one, follow these steps. Click the transition you want to delete. Then right click the transition and click the delete link. Once it is removed, click the transition you want to go in that space and drag it to the slot.

    Editing a Transition in Colorful Movie Editor

    You can also edit the transitions. Right click on a transition and click the Edit link. When the box opens, you can change the time it will take to transform to the next photo or video clip. After you have changed the time, click the OK button. You can edit each transition the same way.

    You can use one transition for all of the clips or you can use a different one for each clip. Continue on to the next part of this series to find out how to save the movie you are creating. You can save it as an .avi file or MPEG. Part five of this series will show you how to do that.
