This tab allows you to create a transition between the slide you have selected and the next slide on the slideshow. Transitions will allow your slide to gradually transition to the next one. To open this tab, either select a slide on the timeline then select the Transitions tab, or just click the Change transition effect button between two slides on the timeline.

Applying a Transition

To use a different transition on the selected slide, just click on one of the transition icons. To change the duration of a transition, change the Duration in seconds value then click Apply to change only the selected slide's transition, or Apply to All to change the transitions on all slides.

Clicking Apply to All gives an option to either update Transition Only, Duration Only or Both Transition and Duration.

Removing a Transition

To remove a transition from a slide, first select the slide you wish to remove the transition, open the Transitions tab and then click on the Remove button.

Overlapping Transition

Enabling Overlapping Transition will produce an overlap of the two clips instead of just using the start and end frames to produce the transition. This will shorten the transition and clip duration to create the overlap but will produce a smoother transition.

How to begin a movie with a fade-in

If you want your movie to start with fade-in effect, you need to insert a blank slide (using the Add a Blank Slide button on the Media tab) before the first slide of the slideshow. Click the arrow button to the right of the blank slide, and apply the Cross Fade transition.

Transitions with Options

The behavior of the following transitions can be changed using parameters in a property dialog shown when the transition is first applied or by clicking the Settings button:


Slide A (the slide being transitioned from) starts in the center of the frame. Adjust the Slide A End Position to select which direction it moves out of the frame to.

Slide B (the slide being transitioned into) ends in the center of the frame. Adjust the Slide B Start Position to select which direction it moves into the frame from.

Values are specified as a percentage of the frame size. Negative values specify left and up, and positive values specify right and down. e.g., An X position of -50% means halfway out the left side of the frame.


In this dialog we can set how the slides will be moving.

On the left side we can set how the Previous Slide will be moving, on the right side we can set how the Next Slide will be moving when transitioning.

Select preset positions from the pull-down menus, or drag the blue boxes to the desired positions.

Duration determines the speed of the transition.

Ease In / Out can be used to add some acceleration and deceleration to the movement.


Start by using "Draw lines" tool to draw lines around the main features of the two images. Look for similar features on both images and then draw lines on the first image. Corresponding lines will appear on the second image. Move these lines to match the features of the first image. Hold Ctrl to draw connected lines. Select a line and press Delete to remove it. You can also click "Remove all lines" button to clear all lines away.

"Undo" and "Redo" buttons are available to revert the changes.

Use "Zoom In" and "Zoom out" buttons to zoom images. Use "Hand" tool to move zoomed image inside the control. Click "Draw lines" button again to return back to editing lines.

Click "Change line color" button in case the default line color is not fancy enough.

You can also use "Crop" tool to ensure both images have the same proportions. Click "Crop left" button to crop the left image to the proportions of the right one, and vice versa. Red frame will appear on the image; adjust it and then press Enter to apply cropping or Escape to cancel.

Last thing you may need to do is to change the transition duration.

Now that you selected the image features and the duration, you can preview the results. Press "Play" to apply and preview the transition.
