Tutorial : transitions
ShinyDV clips are not only useful for motion graphic backgrounds,
they can also be used as transitions to tie two clips together

and a shinyDV clip and you are on your way.

import your video segments
and a shinyDV clip that you will use as your transition.

the length of the clip by clicking and dragging the
end of the clip in the timeline.
