I took a little break from editing and recently got back to it. And something weird is happening... When I try to drag and drop a transition from one to another clip something strange happens (see print screen). It groups the clip together and adds the transitions twice - no matter what I do. Is someone else experiencing this? If so, how do I change the settings to it just being applied as a simple transition between two clips with no grouping?
I believe that is the standard way FCP works. When you select a clip FCP puts the transition at both ends. When you just put the playhead where you want the transition FCP puts a single one at that location.
Thanks for the reply and your solution. To my understanding, this means that if I drop it precisely where one clip ends and the next one starts, so in between the two, it should just do a single transitions. If so, I am sorry to tell you that I have tried exactly that and it didn't work. Is there a setting I might have to change within the application or something?
I am so sorry. I just realised the mistake I made unknowingly. My two clips were not on the main timeline but on the one above. Never had that happen so again, sorry for my confusion. Thanks for getting back though and the help and assistance.
Also, highlighting one end of the clip then hitting command + T places whatever's selected as the default transition at that position and that position only. Highlighting an entire clip places transition at both ends.
Mine appears kind of random also, but it’s easy enough to to quickly delete the second transition if it throws one on both ends. You are correct, I don’t think it did this 18 months or more ago... somewhere it was added as standard performance.
