Matthew Moores: i have a problem.... when i drag a transition into my video place move type thing... it goes to the start of my video........ the first thing i done was add music then i selected clips and added it to the audio...... i dont know what to do please help?
Larry Jordan: Saving sanity is one of my favorite things.
aniorg: omg Larry, Thank You sooooo much, this has fixed the problem and you have saved our sanity! We appreciate your quick response. You're awesome!
Larry Jordan: I may have a YouTube video that talks about filters in Compressor.
Basically, H.264 in Compressor desaturates the image. This means we need to re-saturate it during compression to compensate. I know I've talked about this in multiple webinars, but I don't know if I've pulled a specific example for a YouTube video.
The filter is the Color Correction - Midtones filter.
Larry Jordan: I've covered this in webinars. You need to boost chroma during compression. Too complex to detail here.
lifanek: Many thanks for Your answer!
aniorg: Hi Larry, when videos are created through final cut pro X, they look great when played on quicktime but washed out when uploaded on youtube. We have used the .mov file type with h.264 codec. We've also tried using compressor and all different types of settings. Nothing seems to be working and we are frustrated. Please help!
Larry Jordan: Two transitions means that there is a gap between the two clips. Make sure the clips are touching before adding a transition between them.
lifanek: In my case when point is selected and transition is added gives the same result as I would select clip on the left side of this point - two transitions on both sides of clip ;/ And on screen controls still not visible - does something change in newest version?
Larry Jordan: To fix transitions: Make sure you are running the latest version of #FCPX.
Make sure you have the edit point, or clip, selected.
Then, the keyboard shortcut will work.
Ribal Rayess: Hey Larry thanks for this tutorial! it seems that my transitions are turned off? I type command T but nothing happens!!! Why lord Why!!!!!?
Larry Jordan: Hi, Linn. You delete a YouTube video uploaded from Final Cut Pro the same way you delete any other video - go to the Video Manager of your channel, click the box by the title of the video you want to delete, click the Actions box, click delete on the pull down.
Larry Jordan: Make sure ONLY the edit point is selected, not the clip itself. FCP X adds transitions to the selected edit point OR the selected clip.
lifanek: Dear Larry!
Your videos are really great, but I have some problems with transitions in my FCPX (v 10.0.7). When I want to add trans. between 2 clips and press cmd+T it adds also a second one at the end of the second clip ;/ (and it always telling me "there is not enough extra media..." no matter where I'm doing it ;/), also when I select the transition, I cant see on screen controls! Please help! :)
Tyson ZarrinkelkVEVO: I like your voice.
Larry Jordan: Before applying the transition, select the connect clip, or connected clips, that you want to add transitions to and choose Clip > Create Storyline (or type Command+G).
Transitions can only be applied to clips in connected storylines. When adding dissolves, this conversion is automatic. When dragging other transitions, you need to convert the clip first.
Mark Jeremiah: Hello Larry I would Would like to know how would I apply transitions to clips that are assorted above the storyline? When I try to apply a transition there is a do not apply sign attached everytime I click on it can you help me.
Larry Jordan: In the Timeline, set an In that represents the start of what you want to delete. Then, set an Out where you want the deletion to end.
Make sure the Selection (Arrow) tool is selected, and press the big Delete key.
Deejay Amrish: how to delete or erase a particular area in (fcp)?
Hannah Frey: Thank you very much Larry!
Larry Jordan: Hannah:
Make sure you have enough video, called "handles," to support the longer transition. The behavior you describe is most often caused by not having enough extra video to support the transition duration you want.
Also, make sure that the timecode display in the Toolbar reflects the correct duration for your transition. You may be selecting the wrong object.
Hannah Frey: Hi,
I read what you said about editing the duration time of transitions but my transition won't edit for me. I typed Control+D like you said but when I typed what I wanted in, the duration of the transition just became default again.
Linn Ahlborg: How do I delete a youtube video that I have uploaded from final cut pro?
Please help me.
SquaredIntervention: its backspace for some. :D
rick starr: Everytime I add a Transition, I get a message box that says-There is not enough Extra Media beyond clip edges to create tranision. Do you want to overlap (ripple trim) your media to create the transition?
This will decrease the total duration of your project.
The two clips move position and become out of sink. Can I add transition w/o having the clips move? Thx
rick starr: Very Nicely done Larry. Thx for sharing the knowledge. Save alotta ppl alotta time.
Larry Jordan: Once upon a time...
MajorLungeGoats MLGs: I want this guy to read me bed time stories :P
Larry Jordan: Here's a quick trick. Select the transition so there is a yellow box JUST around the transition. Then, type Control+D. This switches the timecode display in the Toolbar to Duration Mode. Now, type in the duration you want the transition to be and press Return.
Or, press Command++ (the plus key) to zoom in so the transition icon is larger. Once it is really big, drag an edge to change the duration.
nita1228: I'm having difficulties expanding my transition bar. I've highlighted it, and got the arrow to move it, but for some reason it will only drag my scenes to cut down one scene while lengthening the other?
I've also tried just dropping a transition in, just in case my command keys were acting up...but I'm not sure what I can do. Do you have any advice? Thank you :)
FullmetalZo: I'm having the same problem
FullmetalZo: I'm having the same problem
Bradd Theodore: I guess I'm doing something wrong with the transitions. I'm using the Star Wars scrolling letters effect with a star background pic and trying to cross dissolve into my footage. When I select either the end of the effect clip or the beginning of the footage and press Command-T, nothing happens. The cross dissolve does not apply for some reason.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
MeMyselfAndJoycee: Thank you!
Larry Jordan: All MacBooks have a delete key in the upper right corner area of the keyboard. If you're using a keyboard cover, it may not show. What you don't have is a "forward delete" key. To do a forward delete on an Apple laptop, hold down the function key (the key labeled "FN") in the lower left hand corner of the keyboard AND the delete key to get a forward delete.
MeMyselfAndJoycee: I have no delete key on my MacBook! What should I do now?
tasheafinally20: Maybe this is a dumb question but what is a cut transition and how do you do it
TheTCOLL: The edge of the clip? If I do this I just get a full size title without my video in the background. What I want to do is have a tittle on top of my video and have that title fade in or whatever.
Larry Jordan: Yes, you can add transitions to titles in #FCPX. Be sure you are running 10.0.4, then select the title in the Titles Browser & drag it to the edge of the clip where you want the title to appear.
TheTCOLL: Is there anyway to add transitions to tittles? I cant do it.
bobbutnot: I believe you are one of the greatest teachers at USC! and Thanks, your videos about fcpx help me a lot! I am a beginner of fcpx... still lots of things to learn, lol.
Larry Jordan: I love explaining technology so that it is understandable, and yes, I teach at USC and Video Symphony, plus all the training you can find on my website.
bobbutnot: Are you a teacher?
Larry Jordan: I'm not sure what you mean by "a view frames." Normally, using #FCPX 10.0.3 or later, deleting a transition should remove the transition and store the cut. What frames seem to be missing?
MyVideoproductions1: Hi i accidentally added transitions between speeches which was cut, when i delete it on my Macbook pro by deleting with the tab or fn & tab it delete the transitions but then i loose a view frames of the video. Is there a other way of deleting it without the lost of a view frames?
Larry Jordan: The easiest way to change a lot of transitions at once is to hold Command+click to select all the transitions you want to change. Double-click the new transition you want to replace them with in the Transition Browser.
While this will change all the selected transitions, you'll need to manually change the duration for each transition if it is something other than the default 1 second duration.
duveholm3: What's the easiest way to be able to change a lot of transitions at once?
Let's say I've done a project with lots of cross dissolves with 1 sec duration but I want to change them all to a circle with 2 sec duration.
