    Are you trying to add it in between the shots? That’s when you can add transitions. Or, are you trying to do something different, like using cut-aways?

          So you have a project with two clips. You drag the transition to the space in between the two. The only time this won’t work is if one of the clips is too short.

            I have a video project and i insert a b roll in the video
            which made a video track above the original video.
            know i want to add a fade so the the video will fade from the original video to the b roll i added above the orignal video.
            I dragged the effect between the two videos a roll and b roll
            and the effect doesn’t work.

              Ah, so it made a track “above the original video” — so that sounds like you added a cut-away then, not a second track.
              In that case, you can’t use standard transitions. But you can add a simple dissolve. Just select the upper track, type “I” to bring up the inspector so you can see that’s clip’s properties. You’ll see there a way to set the dissolve.
