Here’s a quick demo of how I’ve done it. I’m definitely not a FCP expert, so there might be better ways to accomplish this. I’ll record this with a bit more “finesse” another day when I can talk and put a little more time into it.
Note: FCP will sometimes prompt for that “Create Transition” alert when the clips are smaller and it can’t create the transition without bleeding into the other clip(s).
Hey! I just wanted to say thanks for this. I finally had a chance to try it today, and it was super-simple to follow.
If there’s a way to make the transition a little more gradual, that would be good to know how to do (I looked around but couldn’t figure it out and have 22 videos to edit for Christmas Eve so…), but even as it is, it’s much nicer than a harsh “cut to black” which is what I was getting with my old method.
