I know how to apply a fade transition to an entire slideshow. Is there any way to remove all the transitions, without selecting each transition individually? I tried applying "no effect", but it will only allow me to apply it slide by slide. (I can't use undo, because I've made many changes since I applied the fades to all slides.) Regards,
Dan

The answer is no. Look at this recent link: http://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/29995.page . That does not stop individuals to come up with ingenious ways to make it easier. See the last thread on that post.

You can always check the autosave for a time that you knew was before you added all those transitions.

Hey Dan -

Here's a way to apply "No Effect" to the whole slideshow. It doesn't "remove" the transitions, as such, but the produced file will look like there are none.


  1. Add the "No Effect" transition to your favourites, and remove any other previously added favourites.

  2. While you have the "My Favourites" folder/tag open, select "Apply Random Transition to all videos"


It's shown here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70CTEAI9ozI - but I don't think someone of your perspicacity needs the visuals.

P.S. When I watch it play back, it doesn't completely look like there's no transition there... but see what you think

Cheers - Tony

Thanks tomasc and ynotfish. I tried the "favorites/no effect" approach and it worked fine (and I learned something new about favorites and transitions in the process).

Then I checked out tomasc's link. I realized that I could control-left click on several transitions at once and remove them, but only if I used the "delete" key. If I right-clicked to bring up the menu with "remove", it de-selected the transitions.

I also realized that if I changed to storyboard view, it made selecting the transitions a lot faster and easier. So thanks to both of you!

Select the first transition. Hold down the Shift key and select the last transition. Hit the Delete key. Done!
