Smooth Transition Issues

The smooth transitions with media files is unusable as ALL layers fade to black during the transition, not simply the deselected layers.

  • Matthew Potter That black issue is specific to Multi-viewer correct?
    I've seen that as well.

  • CraigS It is not. It is on the live output too… both the actual recording / streaming as well as the live view.

     I'm not seeing it there for me. 
    When you use Smooth Transition you have to match layer order if you are using multiple shot layers within a shot.
    If camera (or media file) is on a shot layer it should be on the same shot layer in the subsequent shot.
    Give you simplest example, one shot to another, and I'll try to reproduce it.

    Lower thirds:


    Place your camera on layer 4, bug on layer 1 and lower thirds on 2 or 3… Then try again keeping the camera live and only using cut or smooth to show and hide media files (while they are set to "hold" after they complete).

  • Matthew Potter Thanks for the sources.
    Tested and it's exactly as you describe. It's as if the media files will go off and on even when they shouldn't be involved in the transition.

    Consider it confirmed. Do report and link to the videos.

  • CraigS Received a followup today about it being submitted and sent the files. I have another one I’ll be submitting today about hiding a sub-layer using the eye and the whole show turning black… yay… and just before a big event tomorrow.

  • Matthew Potter Do post a separate thread for that and include examples as I suspect you will.

  • CraigS Oh, believe me. It will be… thanks Craig. Each time you’re able to confirm, it helps for the submission of the bug. It means that it’s not a one-off and I’m not crazy… okay… more crazy than normal.

  • CraigS More examples. I’ve sent it to the bug discussion but they are saying that they cannot reproduce:
