The Transitions section
The Transitions section of the Album provides a large set of drag-and-drop clip transitions. To keep things manageable, the transitions are divided into groups. Use the dropdown list to select which group of transitions you want to view.

Studio’s transitions collection includes 74 standard transitions, more than 100 Alpha Magic transitions, and a starting set of unrestricted Hollywood FX 3-D transitions.
Besides those installed with Studio, additional packs of Hollywood FX transitions are available for purchase through the Pinnacle web-site.
See Expanding Studio for more information about purchasing premium content for Studio.
As you move the mouse pointer over the transition icons in the Album, the pointer changes to a grabber symbol (indicating that the transition can be dragged from the Album to the Movie Window). If you pause momentarily on the icon, the name of the transition is displayed. The display persists for several seconds or until your mouse pointer moves off the transition.
When you click on a transition icon, the Player demonstrates the transition using the convention that “A” represents the original clip and “B” the new clip. The demonstration cycles for as long as the icon remains selected.
To see a detailed view, stop the Player and use the jog buttons (Frame reverse and Frame forward) to step through the transition one frame at a time.
