1. Edit the transition in Inspector Panel.

Click to select the transition you want to adjust, and you can see an Inspector panel on the right side of the preview window. Now you can change:

Duration: Enter a number for the duration in this option. Alternatively, you can drag its edges in the timeline to change the duration.

Transition Type: Click to select a type of the transition.

  • Repeat Frame: Keep the end of the former clip and repeat the first frame of the next clip. Then put them together to perform a transition.
  • Retrieve Frame: Retrieve the deleted footage in the end of the former clip (if it was trimmed ever) and combine it with the first frame in the next clip. If the trimmed footage is too short to meet the required duration, it'll be stretched properly.
  • Stretch Frame: Slow down both clips covered by the transition and combine them to make a transition.

Batch Add Transition: Choose to add the same transitions in bulk to clips on the left or right of the current transition, or add transitions to the entire track. If you check Random Transition Type, it'll batch add different transitions from the Effect panel and give the priority to effects that you liked.
