I have found a bug (CS6). Please add me to beta testers :)

May 22, 2012 4:36 AM

So, on Windows version, when pointing over a Transition, while an edit point is selected, a Trim Transition icon appears, but when you try to trim the transition, the edit point is altered instead.

Here is a sample video:

    A.  Looks like a bug.  Report it here:

    B. You ARE a beta tester.  We all are.  Pr routinely ships with bugs at "dot-oh."  Some will be fixed.  Some likely never will.

    Works just fine for me.  Only the transition changes.

    it depends on the Timeline's Zoom state.

     

    Makes no difference.  If I get that "adjust transition" icon, it only adjusts the transition.

    Yep, even then.  It only moves the transition.

    Or it's good.  Means there's no bug here.  Just a glitch in your system.  And a new CS suite is as good a time as any to wipe the OS and reinstall from the ground up.

    Works with no problems here.

    It only adjusts the transition.

     

    I'm on Windows.

    Weird, dude.

     

    What else do you have installed on there?  Something we don't perhaps.

    Well, you do have a workaround.  You can adjust the length of a transition in the Effect pane.

     

    I wonder about your mouse.  Do you have a wacky one with it's own driver?  I wonder if changing it to another type, or reloading your driver would help.  Shot in the dark, maybe.  I empathize with your frustration.

    Have you tried a different mouse?

    Just going through the process of elimination.

    Yeah, if I zoom out so far that I can barely see the transition and actually have a hard time getting the transition icon, I do get that.

     

    Not sure how 'high priority' this one is, though, given that with one tap of the + key to get to a much more common and much more useful zoom level, it works properly.

    Finally you admit that there's a malfunction.

     

    Yeah, I guess I just wasn't zoomed out far enough, as it only seems to happen at a zoom level I consider unusable for the task.

     

    Have heart, you are NOT crazy.

    Is it a crazy wish to try expanding Transition duration by eye

     

    Crazy?  Maybe not.  Uncommon?  Quite possibly.  I think most transitions will be specifically timed, 2 seconds, 3 seconds, etc.  Dragging by eye is too imprecise for the task.

    I must agree with Steven - I just reproduced this bug and it bothers me a bit. Like Steven, I add a short fade on most audio cuts, and often need to tweak the duration of the transition (way under 1 second). I am NOT zoomed out to an unreasonable level, probably the level of my liking (I don't like to zoom in too much). In any case, if the icon shows "trim transition", then it should always trim the transition.

     

    The good news for me is that as long as the editing point is not selected, the bug doesn't happen. So I can live with it, but it's definitely a bug.

     

    It does seem like editors have such different habits, so I could be doing something all the time but another editor may not do it at all. Which might explain why I have experienced frustration in moving from FCP to PP, but some others have no problem at all.

    Solving Bug Reports are definetely not in the high priority in Adobe's Software Engineering policies

     

    I disagree.  I think 6.0.2 fixed some pretty serious bugs.

     

    Rather, you should probably say that fixing bugs that are not likely to be encountered by many users and can easily be worked around with a simple keypress are low priority for Adobe, especially in light of more serious issues.

    Did 6.0.2 come with new trim icons?

    Each user have it's own set of issues.

     

    Agreed.  I'm only saying that Adobe needs to consider users as a whole, and as there are still folks who can't edit at all using CS6 due to some serious bugs, I'd bet this one's pretty low on the priority list for fixing.

     

    In fact, if past experience is any indication I'd wager it's so low that once the critical bugs are fixed, Adobe will move on to adding new features for CSNext and skip this one by.
