Okay, I see what you mean now. Just do this then...

1. Add your transition 1st. BEFORE you add the black space.
2. THEN add 10 seconds of black by selecting the clip and pressing + (whatever seconds you decide.) And the clip should fade up from the START point of the transition like in FCP7.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, there's a ton of cool new features but some really dumb ones and that's one of them. I also, didn't like that to add a transition to a 2nd track you have to press cmd G (storyline - what is storyline btw and what is its function?) before adding the transition. Also, when you do add the transition, it defaults to the CENTER of the dissolve not at the top. Annoying. Sigh... apple, sheesh, I really do like what they did with a lot of the features but some things just simply are completely unnecessary. Changing the names of things, adding 2 or 3 steps where before it was 1 step, etc. I'm still pulling for this program to be what it needs to be but as stated before... Apple needs to speak up, like now.
