For some reason I cannot edit the clip duration on short video clips. If the actual clip duration is 3 seconds it may only play for .1 second after it is added to my movie project. When I try to edit this value (.1second) to 3 seconds the value always reverts to .1 second. Seems like this only happens on short video clips. Does it have something to do with the type of transition I use?

    I would suggest removing the transitions.


    A transition can be no longer than half the length of the shortest video clip on either side. If you have a short clip, the transition is likely taking up the whole thing.
