Cross-dissolve not working for time reversed clips, bug?
Hi, I'm having an issue with cross dissolving to a clip that has been Time Reversed. When I apply Time Reverse to a clip, it does not play back during the first half of the cross dissolve. Instead just a static frame is shown. Footage only starts playing after playback head reaches the start of the reversed clip.
In other words, it looks similar to a case where you try to cross dissolve to a clip that does not have any extra footage at the start: the previous clip plays ok and slowly dissolves out, while the next one dissolves in showing a single frame (=first frame of the second clip). It only starts moving half-way into dissolve effect. In this case I have a lot of extra footage around in and out points for both clips, though.
I can perhaps work around this by using two video tracks and doing separate opacity ramp down/ups to the two clips. But it is a kludgy solution.
Is this a real bug, or are there any better workarounds?
edit: found a duplicate https://community.fxhome.com/discussion/49604/cross-dissolve-on-timeline-freezes-action-for-first-half-of-the-dissolve , although I am not using composite shots, just normal timeline clips. Is the Time Reverse internally behaving as a comp shot i.e. discarding all frames around the clip thus not leaving any for the transition to work?
