I am new to PD. Just registered for the 365.

I ma use to ( premiere ) be able cut first with the right tempo and timing and then add or calibrate the transitions.

If I use Cross - I get a frize frame of the second clip during transition ( althogh the clip is trimed with enough tail or header in the original ).

If I use overlap - alll the timing work that was preformed is lost. This will also happen whenever I make a transition lenght adjasment.


Do I need to go back to premiere or is there something i am missing?

Every video program (including Premiere) requires extra video frames beyond the cut to create a transition. If they aren't there, the program adds freeze frames. How the various programs add these extra frames varies a bit from program to program.

In PowerDirector, you need to overlap one clip onto another to create this transitional segment.

Thx

You can include the overlap when you assemble the video on your timeline.

Maybe someone has a better suggestion.
