    Cool Effect in Final Cut Express 4 won't work
    Hey you guys,

    Question, i've just started working with FCE4 (used to work with Premiere Pro) and now i've stumbled on to something.

    I added a couple of clips to my sequence and now i want to add a audio effect to all of these clips. The cross dissolve effect works on a couple of clips, but on a couple other it won't attach to..

    Does anyone know what this could be?? Thanks ya'll

    sorry, but i dont completely understand what is wrong.

    you are dragging audio onto the time line then trying to do a cross dissolve? can you manually automate the audio so it crosses over?

    Fixed it
    Oh! I fixed it. I dragged the audio clips to 2 different tracks... now i was able to add the cross dissolve. And then i dragged them back to the top 2 tracks!
    Hmm.. weird solution, but it worked!

    I would delete the fades to see if the clips are indeed right next to each other. Moving a clip with a transition attached sometimes leaves a short gap to make room for the transition.

    Also realize that if you use all of a clip's content to the very end or from the very beginning, there won't be any extra frames for the transition to use, and the transition won't be added on one or both sides of an edit point. You'll have to start or end the transition on the edit, but you won't be able to center it right on the edit.
