  • Dissolve between tracks

    Sometimes I prefer clips on two tracks (e.g. 1VA & 2V) just so I can see what's going on! The only way I know to dissolve between clips on two tracks is to use the fade in/out tool or manually fade using the blue line in the white area. However both these methods are unsatisfactory because the images are actually fading to/from black and the result is the image going dim through the dissolve.

    Am I missing a trick here or is this normal for Edius?

    be sure to always apply the fade or dissolve to the upper track only

      Also make sure the bottom track is overlaping (or would that be underlaping in this case?) the top track.

        Barry:
        Yes, you are missing a trick. Pay attention to what pjsssss notes above, and simply put a disolve transition (or any other transition you wish to use) on the keyer track of the upper clip.

              Gees guys I have came over to edius from Premiere Pro and am having all sorts of problems figuring out this interface. I am for one, trying to do the same add a fade in on the front of a clip (the very first clip ion the timeline) after adding the buttons to the timeline it doesnt do anything when i add the fade in to any part of the clip. I know Im missing something but need a little advise on what im doing wrong.
              also cannot find the add video button only in the application settings for the left player??????

              Please help!

                to fade in, drag a dissolve yo the beginning of the clip at the bottom gray area called the keyer track

                or add the fade in fade out tool buttons on the timeline, in customize, button, timeline

                or create ab opacity rubberband fade on the keyer track yourself and an audio rubberband fade while you are at it, the following is a fade out example
                http://www.videoproductions.com.au/e...fade-still.gif

                to kill audio on any clip, click the delete audio button on top of timeline, you may need to add it first

                or, drag a clip to a V track and the audio is deleted automatically
