I'll bet you didn't think it was possible to use a transition between your video or image clips in the overlay tracks. Well I did too, until last night. Oddly enough I discovered this while trying to get a bumper designed in MSP to work in VS. To add to this a read through Terry Stetler's tutorial for MSP 8 on using Inter-Track Transitions. With MSP7 and earlier the transitions were placed on an FX track between the video tracks, that you wanted to transition. <---Read that sentence again!!! It's that easy... Didn't get it? Ok, with VS 10 Plus you can not actually place a transition between or on any of the overlay tracks. However you can:
- Fade-in and Fade-out clips on overlay tracks.
- Place clips on any of 6 overlay tracks.
- Overlap those clips
Ok I'll show you just how simple this is. Just click on the image below and I'll walk you through it.
There is a downside, you can only Create a cross fade. or Fade to Black. You see you are not applying a transition, you are creating it.
