I am having a consistent problem... Whenever I do a cut (extract) on the timeline my effect transition time is cut in half and only shows on the left side of the transition. It's not because I don't have enough handle room. It happens all of the time. It happens on audio tracks too. I believe this was a problem with Avid many generations ago that was addressed and corrected. Anyone have any guess as to why this is happening to me all of a sudden? Please message me if you have a solution.
Not seeing this with 8.5 Mac on 10.10.11 either. Nor on 8.5 10.9.5. I didn't comment because I've never seen this behavior. Transition Preservation was introduced in Media Composer 3, I believe, and always worked. You know, you might need to trash the Avid preferences. Preference Manager from DigitalRebellion.com is free, and does that...even for Avid.
