    Re: Suggested Changes to Transition & Fade Handling in Studio 22U.2.0.325

    Update:

    The following issue was added to the Support Ticket:  

    Another issue in Studio 22U.2.0.325 when creating an IN Fade (cross-fade) on a clip when the Timeline is in Insert or Smart mode.

    The left clip that is being overlapped and all clips to the left of it are being pulled to the right creating a gap at the beginning of the Timeline and causes sync issues to the left of the edit point.

    In this situation all clips on the track to the right of the edit point should be pulled to the left as the clip is trimmed to accommodate the Fade (cross-fade). (There should be no gaps or track sync issues created to the left of the edit point. The sync issues caused by the overlapping should be to the right of the edit point). 

    Corel Tech Support suggested 'Delete Temp Files' and 'Re-name Pinnacle & Pinnacle_Studio_22 Folders' to try and resolve the issues.  

    PS22U.2.0.325 was again tested with Transition Mode in control Panel set to 'Overlap Clips' and Timeline in 'Insert Mode'

    NOTE: The Transition Mode setting also controls the handling of Fades (cross-fades between clips) for overlap purposes.

    A summary of the issues passed to Corel Tech Support is set out below.  CTS advised the issues have been referred to the next level of Support.

    FADES (Cross-fades between clips)

    - Add or adjust duration of a Fade (cross-fade) is OK, however there is an issue when adding a Fade IN - the clips to the left of the edit point shift to the right leaving a gap at the beginning of the track.  Also creates sync problems with other tracks to the left of the edit point.  The clips to the right of the edit point should shift left. (The similar action for Transitions works correctly).  

    - Adjust the duration via the Transition Editor does not overlap and still frames are created.  The clips should overlap.as for manual adjustments. 

    TRANSITIONS  

    - The following actions do not overlap the clips (still frames are created):

        . Drag Transition to Timeline

        . Adjust duration via the Transition Editor

        . Add IN or OUT Transition via the Context Menu

    NOTE: After a Transition is added to the Timeline (no overlap) the duration can be increased but not decreased below the value when added to the Timeline.  After one or two manual changes this appears for some reason to stop overlapping. 

    - Cannot add IN or OUT Transition to multiple clips selected on the Timeline.  Transition is only added to the last selected clip.  Suggest that transition should be added to all clips selected on the Timeline and overlapped if Transition Mode is set to 'Overlap Clips' and Timeline is in Insert Mode. (as per PS21U.2)

    - When Transition Mode is set to 'Overlap Clips' and Timeline is in Insert Mode Ripple of Transitions and Fades (Cross-Fades between clips) should overlap the selected clips (no still frames to be created).

    NOTE: The purpose of the Transition Mode function in the Control Panel is still unclear after further testing as the Timeline Mode should be able control the handling of Fades (cross-fades) and Transitions.  INSERT and SMART modes overlaps the clips, shortens the Timeline and does not create still frames. OVERWRITE Mode creates still frames and maintains Track Sync.

    No response at this point from the next level Support.
