|Scene Editing Guide|
Effects and transitions in FilmCutter's editor share a selection list but they are two distinctly different things. Effects operate on frames within a given cip or scene and transitions operate on end frames from a proceeding clip/scene and the beginning frames of the following scene or clip.
Click the ' T ' button to open or close the transition and effects selection window.
Transitions reside between scenes and therefore a transition cannot be the first or last scene element but are a scene element in themselves, whereas an effect such a FadeIn is applied to a scene and is part of that scene element. Transitions draw two scenes together and need to be surrounded by usable frames. If scene one is 30 frames, scene two is 30 frames and the dissolve in between has a duration of 60 frames "?8/(!@)" (error, error, error). Trust me.
