How to add transitions in the HTML5 video editor?

To add transitions to videos without any problems or technical complexities:

1. Open the video transitions app page in your browser.

2. Drag the file or several files you need from the video folder to the files area in the Media section.

3. When the files are uploaded, place them on the timeline one after the other in the desired order. Everything is ready now, and you can start editing, including creating transitions.

Place files on the timeline one after the other in the desired order

4. Now click the Transitions tab. Choose the required item from the available transition effects — Dissolve, Fade In, Fade Out. While holding down the left mouse button with the selected video transition effect, drag the cursor to the area where the two files join or to the beginning / end of the file (depending on the selected effect). The mouse button can only be released when the cursor turns green.

Click the Transitions tab

  • Dissolve effect — dissolving frames from the first file into the second file's frames, overlaying layers.
  • The Fade In effect is a gradual appearance of the current file’s frames.
  • The Fade Out is an effect where the current file’s frames are gradually disappearing (subsidence).

Fade in / Fade out effects can only be applied to the beginning and end of any file. These effects don't require you to utilize the second file to apply the effect.

And the Dissolve effect is applied to two files. Which means that you will be able to apply this effect only at the files joining point.

Transition adding is now complete.

5. If your goal is to add a transition to other places, repeat Step 4 — select the required video transition and add it to the required area.

6. Click the “Save” button to start the editing process. When the process finishes the video transition editor will offer to follow the link with the created file (clicking the link will open a separate tab in the browser) or download the file by clicking on the Download button.
