Try this: The transition insertion behavior you reported happens when one drags the transition to the lower center of the clip or to the lower audio portion of the clip. Drag that transition only to the top portion or video portion of the clip and release the mouse button.

Expand the timeline ruler temporarily to allow you to see the transition placed in the center of the clip instead of it being placed on the left or right clip which will cause the black portion to be displayed as you have noted.


Thank you very much for this. I will follow your advice to the T

Thank you again.

Hi again to all of you
The positive answer to my question concerning 4K editing was very helful.
I have another question/problem I need to solve.

When editing and creating my film I do use the "fade" extension very often (I do not use any other transition).

I have a hard time inserting that transition between two clips. Sometimes I have to trys 5 or 6 times, sometimes more often.

When I manage to insert the "fade" transition, the result is not good. I get a fade from the prior clip than a black screen for one second or so before the next clip appears. There is no proper fading.

This is in at lest 50% of my editing.

My PC has plenty of HD space, plenty of memory and processing power. It was custom built for video editing by PC Specialst.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Kind regards

Quote Hello,

This camera came out in 2014, so all files should be compatible. I found a few sample videos, including a couple 4K videos in the XAVC/MP4 format. I had not problems wiith them in the latest version of PowerDirector.

Cheers

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Quote In the chain between your camera and the DVD there are several moments where things can go wrong.
Note that if you have a HD camera which is likely 1920x1080, the regular DVD file format set to high quality goes as far as 720x480 60 frames. Which is much lower than the HD input?
Maybe good to help us understand the specifics of the steps are you take?
- What is the format of the video (file) you get from the Sony camera?
- What are the project settings you have used in PD 20 (framerate etc.)
- Let us know what the settings are for the preferences for producing and for hardware acceleration, they might matter too.
- What kind of editing did you do, color changes, effects etc.
- What are the settings you use to output the video?
- Is there an intermediate step, if so what format specs are you using?
- If directly to DVD from PD20, what are the parameters you apply
- And last but not least: how do you show the DVD, is that per PC (which software) or on a DVD player?

Sharing the result may give us an idea of your problem but the above may help us pointing into the right direction.
If you can then maybe add a screen recording showing a bit of the original and a bit of the result? Maybe use VLC to show the clips on you PC?
