Why can't I increase the transition time?


Dennis524

Question

Using Video Wave, I want to start my movie with a colored panel fading into view. I put a dissolve transition

in front of a panel. When I go to set the duration time of the transition it was preset at 1 second, it won't let me increase the time. I can decrease but not increase. Using the same transition in other parts of the movie

I can adjust the time. What would be the reasons why I can adjust the duration time in some transitions and not in others? Please help.

Transitions are a combination by subtracting from the panels it is between. If you have nothing in front of it, there is nothing there to take away. As suggested, you need to add a black panel first

Start with a black panel in front of the transition. Set the duration to a little more than 1/2 the duration you want for the transition. The color panel following must be more than 1/2 the transition duration.

 

A transition "steals" 1/2 of its duration from the preceding image/panel and 1/2 from the succeeding image/panel.

What durations do you have for your images and what for your transitions? Does the slide show preview OK?

Slides have been set to 10 sec, transtions to 3 sec. There are 160 slides. Production length shows 00:18:44.03.

Seeing that transtions live insice slide times, I would expect the production time to be 1600 secs (26:40 ).

Preview is OK and slides seem to be approx 7 secs as expected.

Yes transitions live inside of the accompanying slides/videos, but it also in effect causes the neighboring slides/videos to overlap each other. In you case, by apporx 3 secs each, for a total of approx 8 mins (160*3 = 480 secs = 8 min). so the production is shoretened by theose 8 mins when transitions are added.

:huh: The above answer solves a part of my problem with the sum of the durations and the transitions not adding up to the production time !

However, the sum of only the transitions is still much greator than the production time.
