Thread: A flash when transitions are used.

    Default A flash when transitions are used.

    I can't think of any other way to describe it....
    When I use the dissolve transition the clip I am dissolving FROM, into the next clip, there is a momentary flash of light as it ends.
    This is annoying and jarring on the eye.
    What would be causing this?

    I'm using Sony Vegas 7

    Here you can see an example of this "flash" as the opening carousel images dissolve into the head shot.

    I've tried changing the transition to a cross fade but the flash still occurs.

    I've also tried changing the type of dissolve it is but that didn't work either.

    The strange thing is it seems to only be a problem in that very first section but I have encountered this problem several times before in other "experimentations".

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Yeah . . . I'm wanting to see a good Screen grab of your timeline around the area of 24 seconds. A few frames before and a few frames after - yeah? I pride myself at being able to spot these anomalies right off. But I'd need to dig about the VEG. In which case all I would need is the veg around that region. I DON'T need the media. You could email it to me.

    Hi Grazie.
    I was up late last night determined to try and fix this and it looks as though I have!
    I changed the fade TYPE to one where it looked like a straight X and miracle of miracles it worked!
    I have no idea why something so simple would work....or if indeed this is just some fluke, but I'm not complaining.
    Thanks anyway!
