Hello - in one frame I have the following: http://www.proofreading4students.com/FrameA.jpg and in the next frame I have http://www.proofreading4students.com/FrameB.jpg I have a 6-sec cross dissolve in the middle but I cannot see the second image (frame B) emerge from under the first image. What am I doing wrong, please?
Learn about 'Handles'. You must make sure that you have 6 seconds of extra material on the two clips for the dissolve to work correctly. If you center the dissolve the left clip needs to have 3 seconds on the end and the right clip 3 seconds on the beginning to create 6 second long handles.
If its one clip and you just cut it on the timeline, then added a cross dissolve, you wont see any difference. Although the transition is doing its job.
Like Harm said you need 'handles'.
