Filters or Transitions

Is there an instruction manual that clarifies how to use FxTiles in FCE. I figured out (sort of) how to use the transitions but when I tried adding a filter I couldn’t remove the transition. I’m using a trial version to see if this is what I should purchase but so far I can’t figure out how to add them to a movie so I’m reluctant to make a purchase.

Clicking the FxTiles banner image inside Final Cut Express should open up the included documentation. Does that help?
