I have just had this problem with the new FCP Studio. In FCP, whenever I make custom transitions to put in favorites tab, the effect is never the duration I choose. For example, if I make a custom Cross Dissolve for a duration of 20 frames, the length tab in the effect panel will say 20 frames long. However, when I add the transition to the timeline, it will be something different... like 24 frames long. A 15 frame custom dissolve will be 18 sec. But, a 30 frame dissolve will be right on... 30 frames. I am working in a normal NTSC 29.97 frame sequence.
Any ideas? It's annoying to have to change the duration of custom frames... or make a custom dissolve that is 12 frames long so it ends up being 14 frames when I put it in the timeline.

And yes, I trashed prefs.

    Hi Apple27

    Okay, this is a total shot in the dark, but I have to ask. Could it possibly have anything to do with drop frame editing/selections if maybe it's set wrong in your preferences? I was going to guess at your frame rate, but you suggest that these settings are checked and correct.

    Man I don't know how to help you, wish I did. That's very baffling. Im sure someone smarter than me will have an answer for you. I'll be looking forward to hearing what the problem is. I'll have to double check to make sure I'm not having the problem myself.
