I have a one sequence video. I want to add a dissolve between two shots in this sequence,so I clicked add edit to separate those 2 shots. When I apply the dissolve button centered on cut, I can see it placed on the add edit, however, no change in the video appears. How can i solve it? If I apply fade to color or other effects, I do not face this problem. I am only facing it with dissolve.
you added an edit so there is no extra video to dissolve to or from. If the add edit was on a cut and they are stills, you can make them freeze frams and make a dissolve. If they are moving shots you could slo-mo and get handles to make a dissolve. If they are talking heads, you might could tighten the edit (depending on audio) both video and audio and make a dissolve ... the more you tighten or edit out the longer the dissolve you can make.
You may have several options but it depends on content.
