    Thanks.

    I thought it applies to the selected cut.

    Cheers,

    Kiril.

    That's right - the CTRL+P shortcut is relative to the edit cursor's position near a cut - it applies to the closest cut on the currently selected track.

    No, this is not strange...
    Just move the cursor closer to the second cut before pressing Ctrl+P....

    I'm afraid I found another strange behavior:



    Now I click on Default transition or Ctrl+P and...



    The transition is placed on the previous cut. In this case the two clips in the middle are actually result of one clip split in two.

    No feature request needed - it's a known issue and it'll get fixed in a future release.

    EDIT: Yes, my instructions require a bit more tweaking alas to get it how you want it.

    The easier method is to turn off Sync mode (Mode>Sync Mode). This will let you add your transition. But it could (and probably will) affect the syncing of any other tracks above and below..
    Worked! Thanks a lot!

    Yes, other tracks get out of sync. May be the way it should work (kind of feature request) is that when you turn off 'Expand clips' sync mode is preserved, but the clips get overlapped.
    For now I need to move manually the following clips on other tracks.

    Thanks,

    Kiril.

    Split V and A.

    Just tried the workaround, but doesn't seem to work - same result - Fade to black...
    Also, tried with VA track - same thing.

    It's a weird issue which may or may not be a bug to do with separation of video from audio on separate tracks, but the current work around is as follows:

    1. Select all audio and video around the cut point where the transition will be applied
    2. Press CTRL+G to group it all together
    3. Apply the transition (it should also apply the default crossfade and shorten your sequence accordingly)
    4. Reselect the grouped clips
    5. Press ALT+CTRL+G to ungroup

    (It's probably a good idea to then regroup the individual clip components, or else future trimming will become more complex)

    I'm not sure what to tell you... it looks like it should work to put the transition between the two clips in the second shot.

    Oh wait... are you using VA tracks or split video and audio?

    Whatever I select in settings, I am unable to add transition, when the mode is disabled (by the button, which I added to the timeline).
    Here is example. I use the upper, left hand button to change modes:
    vs
    In the second case I get fade to black instead of dissolve.

    The question is how to make it work when NOT enabled and the project shrinks.
    It's a checkbox option, you can disable it by un-checking the box.

    When enabled, the clip durations are extended to cover the transition overlap. This results in the overall time not changing, so it's good for fixed-length projects.

    I'm pretty sure this is covered on the EDIUS Training site.

    Hi,

    What's the purpose of the 'Extend clips when applying transitions'?
    I can't apply any transition, if this mode is off...

    If I drag, say 'Dissolve' over the cut, I get a fade from/to black. (an orange triangle in the mixer area).

    If I click the button to set the Default transition, I get error in the status bar 'Data necessary to complete this operation is not yet available'. Bot adjacent clips have plenty of space to overlap.

    What I want is that the clips are NOT extended, but overlapped to accommodate space for the transition. E.g., if the total dissolve length is 2 sec, the whole project will become 1 sec shorter and one sec will be used from the end/start of the clips for the dissolve, while the current In / Out points are not changed, but become the first/last frame in the transition.

    I hope I manage to explain what I want with my average English :).

    Thanks in advance..
