Default transition weirdness
on Sep 26, 2014 at 2:34:05 pm

I'm editing on FCP 7.03. I'm trying to change the default transition Cross Dissolve from 1:00 to :20.

I clear the default, then change the length to :20 and set it as the new default. For some reason when I choose that setting in my timeline the dissolve length is :48!

I've never had this happen before. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.

What happens when you select the transition on the timeline, shift+right click, and change your properties there?

Hi Mark,

When I do that it shows ;48 frames. Of course i can change it there, but that defeats the purpose, since I have lots of cross dissolves (all at 20 frames) I need to make.

What's the frame rate of the footage and the timeline?

Hi Dave. The frame rate for the footage and Timeline are both 59.94

You've performed the litany of standard remedies for FCP Weirdness, correct?

Delete render files with the Render Manager, trash preferences, repair permissions, run Disk Warrior....

Actually Dave - trashing preferences sorta worked. However I needed to set the cross dissolve default to 10 frames instead of 20, so it would work on the 59.94 timeline. Does that make sense?

No. It should work. How long are the trim handles on your clips? If you have only 10 frames trimmed off the in point of a clip, you can only do a 10-frame dissolve.
