Except for the basic edit tools, this program also has a strong transition function. Movavi provides users with a wide range of transition effects that you can add to your videos, such as Fade video transition effect, Warp or Circle, and other more transition effects. But, this software limit the free use time, if you want to continue to use this program, you have to pay for the bill.
