Using Transitions In Final Cut

 

Open up final cut and import the pictures or video clips that you'd like to link together, they should be side by side in the bottom window.

When you're done putting them all together go up to the tabs on the top left corner and click on the effects tab. Then click on the 'video transitions' menu.

Once that is open you have the choice to pick a sub category of transitions, pick one you like and open it up.

A drop down menu will pop up, pick a type of transition and drag it down between the two clips you want linked together.

Add transitions between each clip and one at the beginning and end.
