    pinnacle 25 overlaping transition images

    opened the pin 12 project in pin 25

    series of images with transitions and a sound track.

    in 25 the images are longer than the sound track.

    i assume this is because the images were "overlapping" each other so in total they were shorter.

    does this make sense?

    pin 25 has three positions for a transitions. do i choose the middle one, to get the same effect?

    thanks

    The difference might be because PS22 onwards have two methods of working with transitions (you can set this in Studio's control panel - Project Settings page). I would suggest that you try setting Studio's transition mode to Overlap Clips and then re-import the Studio 12 project. FYI I've added an explanation of the two transition modes below in case it helps:

    Overlap Clips
    Transitions behave in the same way as legacy Studio and "new" versions prior to 22.

    • Add the transition as an "out" transition (to the left of the "join" between two clips) and the clip to the right of the join (and everything else further to the right on that track) moves to the left to create the "overlap" necessary for the transition. Synchronisation of content with what is on other tracks will be disturbed... (All transitions placed between clips in Legacy Studio work in this way).
    • Add the transition as an "in" transition (to the right of the "join" between two clips) and "spare meat" (that had been trimmed from the end of the clip before the trasnsition) will be used to create the necessary "overlap" for the transition. If there isn't enough (or any) "spare meat" you'll see the "out of meat" (pink) colour and the last available frame in the "outgoing" clip will be held as a still-frame for the remainder of the transition.

    Maintain Timeline Sync
    Newer mode introduced by Pinnacle (from 22 onwards) in an effort to help novice editors who were struggling with keeping stuff on different timeline tracks in sync. But IMO it's a pain in the butt; quite a few transitions don't work properly in Maintain Timeline Sync mode - so I prefer to stay with the "overlap clips" mode!

    However the transition is added between two clips, Studio will always try to use "spare meat" that was previously trimmed from either or both clips to create the "overlap" necessary for the transition; if there isn't enough "spare meat" Studio will hold the last available frame of the outgoing clip (to the left of the transition and/or the first frame of the "incoming" clip (to the right of the transition) as a still-frame

    The transition's alignment (left/right/centre) controls how much "spare meat" is taken from each clip:

    • Left - no "spare meat" is taken from the "outgoing" clip, it is all taken from the "incoming" clip
    • Centre - an equal amount of "spare meat" (half the length of the transition) is taken from both clips. The transition must be an even number of frames in length!
    • Right - no "spare meat" is taken from the "incoming" clip, it is all taken from the "outgoing" clip
    • Custom - drag the transition left or right to change the proportion of "spare meat" taken from each clip (e.g. to create artistic effects or avoid seeing still-frames if there isn't quite enough "spare meat" in one of the clips).
