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.
