Hi and thanks for any input.

I'm editing photos into a series with music, as part of a larger doc I've animated the movement in Motion 5, exported as quicktime, imported the .mov files, and put them on a timeline added cross dissolves. This isn't a new technique for me and I've never had problems. I've been working on the piece for several days, and only the new edits show this issue. All the settings match--.mov files and timeline are the same specs.

But for some reason I'm getting a black frame at the transition. Just one. Right at the switch from one shot to the other. Moving in and out points doesn't change it. Should I restart? Put everything in a new timeline? I took one transition and created a new timeline and put the images then the transition in. Same deal. So I'm not thinking a new timeline will work.

Mac Powerbook w 16g ram running OSX10.9.5

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Jana Birchum

Check the parameters of the animation file you created in Motion, my guess is that you made an error in Motion by exporting at a frame rate that differs from your sequence settings.

Well, that wasn't it. I had duplicated the project from a previously (working) project, and the parameters stayed the same.

I've just laid them into the timeline differently and it's working, so I'm moving on. I don't know why they don't dissolve correctly when laid side-by-side and the dissolve laid across. But they do work when laid on separate tracks and the dissolve added to just one clip, so I'll go with that.

gremlins.

I prefer the kind of gremlins that sneak in late a night to do all our uncompleted work.

I NEVER get those gremlins. Just the "weird things happening that can't be explained kind".

Please send yours over. I could use some that do things CORRECTLY while I'm gone.

In the fairy tale the gremlins made shoes at night for a cobbler who fell behind in his work - perhaps they've graduated to editing, but I've never awoken to a gremlin completed project yet.
