    I tried to use transitions between clips on the same track, but I gave up - whatever mode I use I get strange results - only one of the clips is marked with transition (sometimes on the right, sometimes on the left) or strange cropping occurs and the projects gets out of sync. So I decided to use the mixer instead.
    I think that first it is better to try and understand how transitions work in a single track and then choose what is best for you in each case...


    do some experinments with the following modes:
    • Ripple mode On/Off
    • Sync mode On/Off
    • Extend Clips On/Off (Application Settings)
    • Insert/Overwrite modes
    • trim mode
    try some combinations as well and see what happens...

    Tracks, Transitions and audio crossfade, etc

    Ok,
    first I need to admit I'm new to Edius. Next, it seems I'm idiot too :)...
    I read all posts here related to transitions (thanks Anton and others!), but I still have troubles with what I want to accomplish.

    I work a lot with music and I use frequently overlaps between V and A, and more V and A...

    I tried to use transitions between clips on the same track, but I gave up - whatever mode I use I get strange results - only one of the clips is marked with transition (sometimes on the right, sometimes on the left) or strange cropping occurs and the projects gets out of sync. So I decided to use the mixer instead.

    Here is what I want to do:

    I have two VA tracks with overlapping clips on them.
    - Add transition (dissolve) and get the audio cross-faded - I saw this 'visualized' in one of the posts but can't 'reproduce it'. Should the audio transition be made manually (fade I/O)?
    - Make the transition stick to the 'edges' of the clips, so when moving one of them with Alt+Shift, it moves and matches the overlapping area. Is this possible at all? Or I need to adjust the transitions all the time? This was possible even in Speed Razor, ages ago...
    - Is it possible to make audio cross-fade default Audio transition for all other effects?

    Example:


    I prefer doing transitions this way - it is more clear visually on the TL, and is much easier to trim. Or... Am I wrong?

    Can an icon or title be added to the transition region, so one can easily see what type it is (e.g. Dissolve, Circle, etc)?

    Also, is it possible to make Edius automatically split stereo across separated Audio tracks and keep them synced with Video? I mean when dragging clip from preview window to TL?
    For now I decided to use VA tracks, but... is this the right way to go?
    I'd prefer to have Video and the 2 Audio channels on separate tracks, but still synced, until I decide to 'ungroup' them - this gives much better control.

    Thanks a lot in advance!!
Working...
