I have a a few clips that I have applied time remapping on.
I take this sequence and put it into another sequence
At the end of the new sequence I simply apply opacity keyframes to do a fade out
The fade does not work and the opacity is acting like it is 100%, even after render.
Why does this happen where PPro CS5 on Win 7 does not respect a simple opacity keyframe for a sequence with time remapping?
Even if I put a black color matte on top of the end of the clip, this does not work. Very frustrating that something this simple does not work.
We need more information to help you. Please provide answers to the questions listed here: "FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?"
I think that I have pretty much already answered most of the questions.
Win7 64bit mercury playback, yes I have have 3rd party plug-ins installed, but I am all effects turned off except time remapping right out of Ppro and opacity. Source footage is H.264 in a .mov container. The issue happens in preview and on export.
I got around the issue by exporting my sequence as an uncompressed .avi file and importing it back in and applying opacity keyframes on that. This is what has always killed me about Premiere, no matter what version, what hardware (never used it on a Mac), what OS, there are always simple little things that just don't work right for me. At any rate, thanks for the suggestions. I was able to get my little project completed.
For future reference, if I should ever need to export to a single rendered clip with affects applied so that I can add more effects and preview in real time without having to rerender the effects in the clip that I have already finalized, what is the best preset to do this with? In this case, I was using 1920x1080 30p footage. And uncompressed is quite a large file. But what is a good codec to use for 720p or 1080p which does not introduce much generation loss when you save it and import it back to make further edits?
I like the free and lossless UT codec for that purpose.
(And with version 11, it looks like Mac users can now encode UT into MOVs, making it a free, lossless, cross-platform DI codec.)
