Check out my timeline. I've got these two video clips overlapping, with a transition applied on the top video in my timeline. When I preview them, the two clips transition from one to another via a 3D cube effect. 

This is just one of many transitions you could try.

8. Emphasize Your Cursor

The Cursor effects make it really easy to add more emphasis to your cursor. Make sure your footage already makes use of your cursor. Then, simply drag one of the effects onto your footage.

So, for example, if you were giving a software presentation, you could add a cursor highlight, so it's easier to see where your cursor is, for your viewers. Want to emphasize when you clicked? Add the click sound effect—Wondershare DemoCreator will automatically add in the click sounds for you, every time you clicked. Awesome, right?
