Just started playing with Final Cut and I can't get it to do simple video transitions like fade in, fade out, and cross fade. I got one fade in on the very first clip in the timeline at some point but now the transitions do nothing. For cross fades I'm selecting two video clips on the timeline and selecting the crossfade. Video effects work such as blur but the simple fades do not.

Editing simple DV on the latest macbook pro so I can't believe the program can't handle it.

Appreciate any help.

Thanks!

To do effects such as cross fades both clips need over lap material. iMovie does this for you. This Ken Stone article, "The Basics - Editing with Transitions in Final Cut Pro", is likely a good read for you.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
