    Not possible to add Quick transition

    Hi,

    in my Timeline, I have in V1 an AVI clip that has an effect on it. Above, in track V2 there is a crawling title.

    I want to apply a quick transition between the clips in V1 (and if possible also at the end of the V2 clip.

    I position the cursor between the two clips in V1, have track V1 selected and click on the Quick transition button. The popup appears but the Add button is disabled and the duration is 0 and not editable.

    I'm doing something wrong, I know, but what?

    Hi,

    It looks like you've used every frame of the A side clip (can't see the clip name, but it looks like it's an imported AVI) and every frame of the B side clip (Amerika tape 1-1), leaving no handles to make a transition from.

    ciao,

    Yep, it is an imported clip. Handles?

    If it is possible to use the quick transition, how?

    Re: Not possible to add Quick transition

    Hi,

    Sef:
     Handles?
     

    Handles = unused frames at the beginning or end of a master clip.  If you have a 10 minute master clip, and you use the 8 minutes in the middle of it in your sequence, the unused 1 minute at the top and the unused 1 minute at the end are the handles.

    Sef:
     If it is possible to use the quick transition, how?

    The quick transition requires handles.  If you want, for example, to make a 20-frame dissolve, you'll need 20 extra frames that are not being used in the sequence.  In your situation, you could go into trim mode, trim the A side back 10 frames, trim the B side forward 10 frames, and that would result in 20 extra frames that you could then make a transition out of.

    Or just watch Douglas' tutorial. :)

    ciao,
    Carl

    Same as in Liquid Sef, only there the "Handles" were called Leeway.

    Re: Not possible to add Quick transition

    Thanks for the tutorial!

    After some trial and errors, I managed this to do on the timeline by trimmode.

    Re: Not possible to add Quick transition

    Sef, to be sure, deselect any other tracks and only select the required video track.

    You'll sometime get this issue if it's your audio tracks that doesn't have any available handle left.
