Transition file should have transparency at start and end (webm, mov, etc.) files.

Next step is to set transition point, move slider to select place, that is not transparent.



By default, transition point is set to the file end. This should, generally, be adjusted.

Transition point is set either by changing numeric value, or by pressing set point. Current point is shown as a yellow line below preview slider.

Dragging the preview slider will not change transition point.

If there are no transitions, stinger node in playlist transition is empty.
When stinger transition is deleted, all items with deleted transition, will change transition to one specified in ScreenController settings.
