Slow down and blend effect not working together

     Hello,

 

I have 2 footages coming from 2 different cameras that were recording the same event and I am using Premiere CS6.

 

I have each footage in a video track and  slowed them down both to 40% . Then I want to use blend effect, so at the last third of one scene, the other kicks in, since camera 2 was set for a close shot.

 

However, although blend effect works great with scenes that are in original speed, I could not make it work when speed is changed! It seems like it blends with a totally different clip - that exists in timeline and is in the same track as I wanted scene 2 to blend in.

 

At the moment I change speed setting (or time remap), the scene 2, in which I applied blend effect, loses is reference for scene 1 .

 

Any thoughts on how to blend slowed down scenes without having to export slowed down first then blending output files?

 

Thank you!

    Well, I probably would be using the Opacity effect on this one, not Blending modes.

    I see that there is certainly a problem. I set one clip on another and used blend at 50%. Worked fine. I changed both clips to 40% and the clip with the effect looks like it is on Frame Hold on the last frame. A bug for sure.

     

    Perhaps you would be happier using a cross dissolve transition between the two clips? At least until the bug gets fixed. I suggest you put in a bug report. I will do so as well.

    Actually they do if you nest the clip that does not have the blend effect.

    Cool. Although it is still a bug. But at least there is a workaround. Thanks Ann.

     

    I have never used the blend effect and never plan to, but they should fix it for those who do.

    There are a lot things that do not work together where nesting is the way to go.
