I'm sorry, what about handles?
In the manual it says, "In some cases, the source media may not contain enough frames for clip handles. If you apply a transition, and the handle duration is too short to cover the transition duration, an alert appears to warn you that frames will be repeated to cover the duration. If you decide to proceed, the transition appears in the Timeline panel with diagonal warning bars through it."
Well, I don't see any alerts, sometimes transition is simply applied to the left off the cut between two cips. I want to know why?
Lack of handles.
Would the moderators please remove the offensive language in post #1?
Harm, I too consider a lot of these questions to be pretty basic stuff, as others do as well, I'm sure. But you act like this is your forum and decide who and what should be posted. It's really simple, ignore the ones you don't like. Someone will answer them. Or not.
Guys, can someone please explain why this is happening:
Here's what I do:
1. I'm editting a single audio track (no video);
2. I cut several clips from that track and inserted them in the time line (each track is from 4 to 7 seconds long);
3. I want to apply Constant Power audio transition between them but what happens is that sometimes this transition cannot "straddle" two adjacent clips and can be applied only on one side.
Why is this happening? (I checked handles, like the first poster suggested, and there's plenty of room on each side in the original track.)
PS. Yes, I'm a noob in this and I cannot seem to find any explanation of this in the documentation.
Is it possible that you have a small gap between the two clips that you cannot see at the timeline magnification you are using? That's the only reason why the procedure you are using might not work if you have enough spare frames to provide the required handles.
Try zooming right in.
Do not cut from the track, but from the source monitor, otherwise you lose handles.
It makes no difference at all to handles if you set in/out in the Source monitor or razor/trim ends on the timeline. Unless you create a subclip, handles are the same in all three cases for the same end clip.
It might be true about the gaps between clips because moving one clip's margin just a notch to the left (or to the right) might allow transition to be applied (straddling) on both clips. I can't really explain why and the documentation is silent about it.
Thanks for all your help.
> I can't really explain why ...
Simple...If you have a gap (even one frame) between clips, it is impossible for Premiere to create a Cross Dissolve over the clips because they are not adjoined..and therefore you get a Fade In/Out only.
Put another way - the gap does not have handles.
