Hi ! please see attached video ...
01. use automate to sequence but be careful to select your clips using the command key in the order you want them to be on the timeline.. you can also set the durations and other parameters in the pop up panel after automating to sequence...
02. trim a bit to have enough frames at the end of a video to dissolve with the still image after ... right click after selecting all video clips in the project panel,
choose duration in the project panel and reduce it by 1 or 2 seconds or whatever the time of your transition by the end of the clip, this trims all videos by 1, 2 or whatever seconds at the end ... put them on the timeline and apply dissolve after selecting everything by the way Command + A selects all
both ways explained in the video here : Dropbox - dissolve.mp4
I used the second way. I did not download the mp4's because I never download something like this for security reasons.
I have an additional question. I have a nested sequence that also starts with a still image. When I add that nested image to a sequence after a still image, I cannot create a dissolve transition between the still image and the following nested sequence that starts with a still image. Is there a way around that? I can create such a dissolve if I do not nest the second part.
In the project panel, choose your still image first, then, holding command select your nested sequence and drag both of
them to icon that shows 'automate to sequence' at the lower right of the project panel, this will drop them both
into the sequence with the default transition in between (which should be cross dissolve). You can also set your own
default transition within an automated sequence by right clicking on any of the transitions and choose 'make default'
