  • Unable to put Dissolve at Beginning/End of clips

    All of a sudden I'm unable to place the default dissolve at the beginning or ending of a clip. I just worked on a simple sequence consisting of two clips, when i attempted to drag the default dissolve to the beginning of the first clip (fade in) or the end of the last clip (fade out) it automatically jumped to the middle of both clips performing a cross-dissolve between the two! I could not figure out how to rectify this; I had to settle with using the transparency band. Does anyone know how to fix this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    were you dragging to lower third of clip? (the keyer track) it has to work, I have never seen that fail, but anything is possible

      Could fail if you have extend on and are at the absolute beginning of a clip. :)

          Chris,

          If you want just to fade in/fade out, you can do that without resorting to dissolves. There are dedicated icons / keyboard shortcuts that EDIUS have - you can just customise those you need on the shortcut menu. Then you just need to click on Fade in / Fade out icons and you get the job done.

            keep in mid that these tools only work if the video and audio opacity/node is looked

            in my case they are always unlocked because I make audio level adjustments etc, so these new tools are hardly used here because they don't work when you need them :)

              I found EDIUS totally hopeless when it comes to adjusting audio levels. Prefer to export them to WAV, use Sound Forge, and then delete the original audio track from the video clip - then append adjusted audio track in. Much much better results this way.

                I also use SF9

                however for quick jobs and quick fixes, I like the audio nodes, it is fast the way I do it

                I made the Y key a shortcut to to bring up the value entry box, I type a value such as 20 (20% of originals) for quick ducks below voiceover

                  Hey guys,

                  Thanks for the help and sorry about not replying sooner (hardly had time to get back online).

                  Thanks for all the suggestions, but Edius started to behave it's self the following day! Don't know what happened there?

                  Thanks again for the help,

                  Waychris
