iMovie '11: Change the style of transitions in a project

Change the style of transitions in a project

You can change the style of a transition that’s already in your project. For example, you might want to change a cross-dissolve effect to a ripple effect, or you might want to replace a standard transition with one from the theme that’s applied to your project.

To change the style of a single transition:

  1. In the Project browser, double-click the icon for the transition you want to change.

  2. In the inspector that opens, click the Transition button, which is labeled with the name of the current transition style.

  3. In the Choose Transition window, move your pointer over any of the transition styles to see a preview in the viewer.

    Press the Space bar while your pointer is hovering over a specific style to preview it playing at normal speed.

  4. Click a transition style to select it.

  5. If you have automatic transitions turned on, click Turn Off Automatic Transitions in the dialog that appears.

  6. Click Done.

To change the style of multiple transitions:

  1. With your project open, click the Transition button in the iMovie toolbar.

    Release the mouse button when you see the green Add (+) symbol.

  4. In the dialog that appears, choose Replace to change just the selected transitions, Replace Similar to replace all similar transitions, or Replace All to change the style of all transitions in your project.

  5. If you have automatic transitions turned on, click Turn Off Automatic Transitions in the dialog that appears.
