The 2 clips being joined in both cases are over 2 minutes long each so it's not a clip length issue. They are nested multicam seq's
hmmm... ok just tried a video transition between the 2 clips and see the same behaviour.
Some would say RTFM, other tell you to read up on handles, and some tell you to get a proper education in video editing, read the manual from front to cover and watch tutorials. There are even instances of hand-holding nanny's who will do all the work for you.
I tell you again to read about "handles" in the help file. Hint: ensure sufficient overlap between the sequences.
For every clip you put on the timeline there is a clip in and clip out. The clip also has two physical ends of the media file.
If the clip out of the outgoing clip is the same as the end of the media file, OR, the clip in of the incoming clip is the same as the start of the media file, you cannot place a transition--there must be overlap for most transitions.
Go to the junction between the two clips you are trying to place a transition:
Using the trim tool, drag the clip out of the outgoing clip back an amount equal to 50% of the transition duration
Using the trim tool, drag the clip in of the incoming clip forward an amount equal to 50% of the transition duration
If this created a gap between the two clips, do a ripple delete of the gap.
By dragging the clip in and clip out with the trim tool, you moved them away from the physical ends of the media file you now have what Harm refers to a handles. You can now place your transition.
As Harm said: "Read the manual," and everything will be made known to you.
it will go to one seq or the other
That's often the result of having empty frames between the clips, rather than being butted up against each other.
I have read most of the manual -once- and and the clip handles and transitions page says " 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 a Timeline panel with diagonal warning bars through it."
which is most assuredly -not- what I'm seeing...and that's maybe why it didn't occur to me and why I'm here.
My situation is this:
Seq_src_x are 3 vid tracks + sync'ed stereo audio which nest into Seq_multi_x which are Multicam 1 vid tracks + stereo which nest into 1 vid track + stereo fas the rough cut
The transition in the rough cut is where I'm trying to add the transition (between seq_multi_x tracks). I have added head room (10 seconds) to the problem seq_src_x which and stretched the multi cam clip by the same amount and reset the in point but it doesn't seem to make a difference. The seq_multi_x track has a dog ear (as does the instance of it on the rough cut) and I can't get rid of it.
thx but Empty frames was the first thing I checked...and don't have any
ok...got it fixed. I assume because the clips were nested, I didn't see the warning as outlined in the docs.
I had to stretch the source track then the multicam track then reduce it on the rough cut track.
