Screencast tip of the week
when using transitions stick to only a few. There are either the dip to black/white or the cross dissolve. Too many people over use transitions that are available to them. If your goal is teaching transitions then by all means go ahead and use them all, if it's not, only use the ones I suggest. Adding transitions can and will detract from your message.
