Getting a "Flash" with a Drag-over Transition

I'm creating a transition by dragging one clip over another.  I get a flash at the right-hand end of the transition, which would be the end of the lefthand clip, and partway into the righthand clip (yet it's the righthand clip that's affected). 

I've attached a video of the issue.

Sorry about the echo in the recording when the narration in the original video comes through, I should have turned it off...

    I suspect it's related to the Nest or the contents of it.

  • Indeed it was... I zoomed in as far as I could on the overlap, and found that the words "The End" disappeared for exactly 2 frames.  I then zoomed into the end of the nest, and found the tracks all ended exactly 2 frames short of the cross-hatched end of the enclosing nest.  I dragged everything 2 frames to the right, and that solved the problem.

    How is it envisaged that we would normally easily adjust the length of the enclosing nest exactly to the end of the last clip?  Is there any simple "adjust nest to end of tracks" step?  At normal magnification you can't even see the 2 frame gap. It seems an awfully fiddly way to do things!

      JOHN HOWARD Currently you'd have to go into the nest and make the changes. As a rule, one would make sure there are "handles" to allow the proper overlap frames for a transition.

  • I'm not sure what you mean by "handles".  Could you explain that?

    The odd thing is that as the upstream clip had a gap of 2 seconds at the end, it overrode the downstream clip's text item for 2 seconds, but you would think that in a clip-overlap transition the downstream clip should take priority, i.e. conceptually the later clip would fade-in "on top" of the earlier clip.
