Transition Problems in Nero 18

No matter what duration I set for the transition between photos in my slide show project they always transition at around 8 sec I've tried all sorts of time durations but it has no effect.

As a result of the above I've decided to delete all the transitions only to discover that I can't find a way of deleting either all of them in one go or deleting a selection, surely there must be a better way otherwise I'm faced with having to delete over 300 transitions manually!!!!!

  • Hi Paul-

    Are you using Advanced Editing or Express Editing?

    I'm asking because the default duration in the former is 8 seconds but is only 4 seconds in the latter.

    I tried changing the duration of the first transition and then applying it either to all videos or all empty transition fields in Advanced Editing and Express Editing, as applicable, and didn't have a problem.

    I was using the multiple copies of the flower Meadow video in Advanced Editing and the 10 sample photos in Express Editing. What is the duration of your photos?
    • Hi and many thanks for the response. I was using Express Editing which as you say has a default duration of 4 secs, however I changed it to 10 sec and then applied it to all transition fields but despite numerous attempts the duration is still only 4 secs, the photos have a duration of 15 secs. What it makes it worse is that I can't even find a way of deleting all the transitions on mass only singularly.

  • The only way I know to remove the transitions in mass is to use the Undo while you're editing (unless, of course, you select them all manually).

    If you notice, when you try to use Set Duration when right clicking on a transition, it will not allow you to set the duration higher than the default. You also can't set the default higher than provided in Nero Video in the Application settings.
    • Your right in what you say but it seems extremely short sighted not to be able to select all and than perform an action such as delete. I've already changed the application settings to what I wanted and am relatively happy with the results now, although I'm just seriously annoyed and frustrated that I've got to manually alter / delete the transitions.

  • I hear yah. It's like the inability to remove gaps en mass when one reduces the duration of multiple photos. Nero is aware of it but hasn't done anything with it for any version. You can always post an idea in the forum or go directly to tech support.
