I just installed the latest patch (2930). I started a project in PD12 and continued it in PD13 Ultimate. It is a 14-month HD video chronology of a new hardware store being built from ground breaking to the Grand Opening, which was this week. The video is 104 minutes, with 66 minutes being video clips as the construction progressed since April 2013.

I noted that with the new patch, every previous transition that I had applied as the project progressed no longer worked correctly. It would start the transition (fade and flip transitions) and then pull in a few frames of the previous clip after it had moved to the new clip, and then show the new clip. Deleting and replacing the transitions worked to solve that problem, but it was tedious. Just a warning that if you have a previous project, check your transitions before burning. Not sure if the problem would show up in the produced/burned project, but it was definitely very apparent on the preview screen. Applying transitions to the new Grand Opening video segments worked fine. It appears to be something connected with older .pds files, which at least affected my computer.

Second observation is that I sorely wish that CL would fix the Title Designer for scroll up credits. I took one of the two Title Room "credits" templates and modified it to a simple scroll up credit. Entering text was painful. The response times were horrible as they have been now for the last two versions of PD12. The workaround, I guess, is to do your title construction in Notepad and paste, but I really think it is long past time for CL to fix this outstanding issue. There is nothing complicated about scroll up credits and they worked fine in PD9 and PD10. Something so basic should work smoothly.

Just my observations. Happy video editing. Have a great day.

Did that happen AFTER you made changes to the project? Reversed transitions were an issue probably since the first release of PD 12, but I always had to edit something to make transitions "flip". In fact saving and loading the project always corrects the behavior for me.
I never filed a bug report, because the exact steps to reproduce it were unclear to me.

+1 for the scrolling text issue.

Thanks, Dafydd.

I had added the new video clips and transitions to them to complete my project when I noticed the transitions applied previously were not functioning correctly when I was checking the project over prior to burning. Glad I did because I would have wasted some BDs. I Don't know if that had anything to do with it whatsoever. I did not try saving and reloading the project so I don't know if that would have corrected the issue.

I am not sure if this is a bug because it could have something to do with my computer configuration. I just wanted to post my observations in the hope that it might help someone else if the problem is more widespread.

Have a great day.
