  • Editing with Edius and the LITTLE dark triangles.

    OK after my install problems I am up and running, in EDIUS 2.53 I am waiting for my PRO3 and PRO4 upgrades to arrive Tomorrow I hope!!

    But In the mean time I have noticed some small darkened triangles / handles that appear on the ends of every clip in the timeline, now when these are visible I cannot place a transition on any two clips together??????

    Have I missed something in the capture?

    Any Ideas?

    Triangle on the ends of clips denote the absolute end of the clip. This means that if you want to add a transition, you'll need to make sure that "Extend Clips When Applying Transitions" is disabled/unchecked.

    You'll find this in the main application settings menu.

      To expand on Kennelly's great answer...if "Extend Clips When Applying Transitions" is checked then you must have some extra "meat" or "handles" on the end of each clip. For example, a 1 sec dissolve applied in the center of two end lips would need 15 frames extra on each clip to complete the transition and the total time of the project will stay the same.

      If the "Extend Clips When Applying Transitions" is unchecked, the same example will take the 15 frames from the end of each clip thereby shortning the project on the timeline by that length.

        To expand on Pats great post...

        If you have a clip that you have trimmed and and clip that is on the first (or last frame) instead of placing the transition in the middle of the clip you just place the transition on the end of the clip with the little triange.

        If you do that thet trimmed clip with extend 30 frames and the other clip will just use the first 30 frames keeping the cut point at the same spot on the timeline :)

          OK and Thanks! What function do they serve other than to show you that its the clips very end?

          This feature is not in any other NLE I have seen.......

            AFAIK that is the only function of the little triangles. It does come in handy.

              It is certainly a feature in A**d systems. Very useful. :)

                Wouldn't it be much simpler to have the transition simply "take" from both clips regardless of whether they had been cut or not? Say a 3 second duration fade out/fade in transition. 1.5 seconds of the first clip and 1.5 seconds of the second clip would be affected the the transition but only as a percentage viewed as the fades take place. Cut or not, the timeline would always stay the same length. Would you ever want it otherwise? What am I missing here?

                  Many folks, Coming from Storm or RexEDIT did not have this choice and so were not used to it. So when they would be at the start or end of a clip it wouldn't matter because the clips overlaped.

                  It all depends on what you are used to. :)
