Mostly of my videos have images over a video. I’m using the dissolve transition to make them appear (10 or 30 frames duration). Until the v19.01.27 I have not problems, but after that version, the transition have transparency and the video beneath can be seen.
The only solution is put the images in differents tracks and apply a fade in and out to the superior, but this dupplicate the time of the process and make the project more ram consuming.
I want to use the update version of Shotcut, but with this little problem I go on with the obsolete version.
Any advice to avoid this problem? How can I make this transition works as before?
It was changed to fix a bug when transitioning between images with differing alpha channels. The only solution is workarounds. Another workaround is to make a background with the desired shape and place that in a track under the transition.
Thanks a lot to both of you for the answers. I will try with the multiple tracks or with the old version. The change to jpg it’s gonna be a mess (a lot ot images in a lot of projects) and I tried others programs that don’t have this problem, but I prefer the timeline, transitions process and others features of Shotcut.
I rounded the corners of two images and saved as PNG to preserve transparency in those corners (as in your example).
I created a standard Dissolve transition, dragging one clip to the other. Then I add an Alpha Channel filter: Adjust - Threshold - 40%.
You can see how well it works.
Without the filter, the light rays of the video are seen underneath the transition. With the filter activated, this transparency disappears.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.
This is what @Brian indicated but without Invert and with a different amount value.
@ejmillan Thanks, that solution works, but I will need to put the filter in every transition. It’s the Threshold option that make the magic, I can put a 0% and this filter works… Time to try that with others images because this error happens with all PNG images, with or without transparency. With images that covers all the video happened the same.
In your case, it works with 0% because in both images there is a black background. I tried with transparent images of non-rectangular shapes and the threshold has to be adjusted.
In my case, there are two images with different color backgrounds so in my case the value 40% does the “magic”.
