I have a clip that i want to cross dissolve into the next clip. This normaly works fine. The first clip has normal opacity ups and downs but it ends at 100% before cross dissolving into the next clip. When i leave the opacity effect on, the cross dissolve doesnt work at all and cuts the video out completly during its duration. either showing the clip in the video track below it or just a black screen. - this transfers into the export as well. if i turn off the clips opacity effect, the cross dissolve works fine. it seems like a strange bug to me. how it just suddenly started happening. Now if i turn off the mercury playback engine and go software only it works fine. (with opacity effects on and off) and exports fine. Im using a gtx 480. i realize this card is not supported as off yet but this was all working perfectly before. I can just mix the clips the old fashioned way for now as a quick fix but id like for this to work. Thanks
Cutting the clip right before the transition would allow you to keep the Opacity keyframes for the part that counts, and turn them off for the part with the transition.
I'd agree, however, that this is odd behviour that should not be.
haha wow. DERRR on my part i didnt even think of that. Thats a very easy workaround thanks. works great, cut 1 frame before cross dissolve and turn off opacity and it works. turn on opacity effect (even with no actual changes to the clip) and it fails. go figure....
Or you could stack the incoming clip onto the track above with overlap and apply the fade transition only to the upper clip.
