Transitions are a very simple and effect technique of smoothing the cut between two separate clips on the sequence timeline. Rather than switching directly from one clip directly to another, a transition can make for a smoother cut to convey a particular mood or time shift.
In order for a transition to work, there must be sufficient material available on both the outcoming and incoming clips on the sequence timeline for the effect to be applied. If insufficient media is available, a pop up appears to inform the user.
