So are you saying it leaves a one frame gap ahead of the overlayed clip?
I will just go and do a quick test to see if I can replicate that but I have never seen it happen before.
Sorry - I re read your post then I did the test. (Note PAL 25 fps)
I set an IN at 10:00 and an OUT at 11:00 and a single IN on the source clip. - a three point edit
I overlayed it and the duration of the clip in the timeline is 1:01 (26 frames)
That is as it should be because the first frame is numbered as "0"
One second of PAL is 00 to 24 (25 frames)
My problem is more that the "out point" I set doesn't match up with the sequence marker. A easy way to explain and for you or anyone to test it out is just zoom in as-far-as you can onto a timeline. Position your sequence marker (red line that runs vertically across the timeline) anywhere and hit the "o" on your keyboard for an "out point." Notice that the "out" point doesn't match up with your sequence marker, but rather one frame ahead. This make it very frustrating when using short cut keys to edit. Especially the kind of editing I do, where I lay down "a roll" first, then fill in the blank spots with "b roll."
Set an IN point NOT an OUT point to drop in a new clip adjacent to the out mark of the preceding clip.
I did do your test but I believe that is expected behaviour of In and Out points.
Try your test by having a clip in the timeline. Pgd/DN to get to the end of it. The CTI is now on the tail of the clip. Hit "O" and you get the behaviour you describe (one frame over shoot). CTRL-Z to Undo it and the mark.
Hit "I" and bingo. In point is where the next Overlay will edit in to the timeline ie adjacent to last clip.
Also do your test with two clips on the Timeline with a gap between them. PG/DN to the end of the first. Hit "I". PG/DN to the next (head of the clip) and Hit "O"
The CTI and the Points match perfectly.
A simple easier way to think of this is:
"Ins" are to the left of the frame and "Outs" are to the right of the frame.
Worth knowing for Keyframing also.
Your first example doesn't help me out because what I'm doing is filling in gabs like you described in your last test you mentioned. Your last test is exactly what I've been doing (thanks for explaining it better) but for me the CTI and the points don't match. The "out" is still one frame ahead. Maybe it has to do that I'm doing a NTSC (29.97fps) project

I tried it also and thats is what happens in that type of project.
I have no idea why sorry.
>"Ins" are to the left of the frame and "Outs" are to the right of the frame.
I kind of thought from the first post this is what was being seen here.
Nope. Its definitely an (annoying) issue in NTSC 29.97 that is not in PAL 25 fps.
I would call it a bug except I do not understand much about NTSC Drop frame etc...
I love PAL.
