Transitions Black Out


Recommended Posts

I have a question about editing clips and transitions. I had 4 clips that I edited/took a segment from and placed them on the sequence bar. I did not place any transitions in because I wanted the final version to run seamlessly. When I previewed it, it did just that, made one seamless video. However, after I saved it into .avi and played that back on my computer, every time there was a "transition" the screen flashed black. This is kind of annoying. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to upload/change something?

There's no transition between clips and no gaps? Odd. Visit the video card chip manufacturer's WEB site and see if there's an updated driver available...

Download and install. If problems arise, roll back to the prior driver via Control Panel|DEVICE MANAGER|DRIVERS tab.

Hi

 

Just tried this with v3.12

Clicked the clips on the media list and used the IN/OUT flags and the DOWN arrow to put them onto the timeline with no transitions.

I noticed a tiny delay at each clip join in the preview and in the saved avi (HD-720) an almost imperceptable black "flash"

Checked back on VP and stepped through the track frame by frame. There seemed to be a "black frame" at every join.

I also noticed that the joins on the timeline were actually a noticable thick black line. It wasn't possible to drag the clips closer together.

 

Adding the clips straight from the media list with no prior cutting gave a similar result although not all joins showed a black "frame"

 

In 2.41 the joins were sometimes a broader blue line but simple adjustment by dragging the clips together or overlapping them (which is not possible in 3.xx) and they would jump back correctly.

 

I think this is probably a fault and should be looked at by NCH.....Anybody else notice this?.

Not seeing this, using 3.10. Back-to-back uncut clips (no transitions) - whether video, still images or intermixed - flow seemlessly in both sequence preview and finished AVI file. Do hear audio pops at the cut points occasionally.

I double checked and everything is up to date. I made a few more videos to see what would happen, and my results were a random 50-50 for the black fluttering. At least now I know it's the program and not something I'm doing wrong. Thank you everyone for the help!
