Observations: Can't find the opacity slider?
I started with Express to work on some holiday videos and found that it didn't have the needed audio codecs so I blew the bundle and got Pro since I see that it can work with my iClone and such.
Anyway, I ran into trouble right out of the gate that took a night of introspection to solve. I was trying to work with files on my network drive and it just kept locking up or was so slow I almost asked for a refund. (Note to devs - update FAQ on reasons for things being slow.)
My next stumbling block is that, for the life of me, I can not locate the opacity slider that is supposed to exist for every clip. Would someone please provide a screen shot or give a more detailed description of where I should find it? ( Again, the answer should be in the manual.)
