Just a quick question. When I apply a sapphire transition, it drops on as a default 30 frame transition. That's fine, but if I need to shorten it to something other than 30 frames (15 for example), the transition shortens to 15 frames, but seems to only cut the transition in half... going from 0 to 15 frames, instead of transitioning from 0 to 7 frames and then down to 15. Does that make sense?
Every time I apply a custom transition, I need to go in and manually adjust key frames to get the transition to work. What am I missing?
I assume you're using Sapphire2 for AVX2 on an Avid. This is actually an Avid bug; the auto keyframes for the transition are not elastic like normal keyframes. To fix it, before you change the transition duration go to the effect editor, right click on the Wipe Amount or Dissolve Amount keyframe graph, and click Elastic. Then the keyframes will auto-adjust with the transition length.
