I am editing a Super 8 film in FCX, which means I have large blocks of footage that I cut up and insert into my timeline. I cut them pretty precisely because often you'll have something completely different at the end of a clip. So when I apply a cross dissolve I notice that it brings in a few frames beyond my cut, which totally screws up the dissolve because it just looks like a mistake. Is there a setting that I haven't applied or a way to tell the cross dissolves to only use the available footage in the clip?
Not the most experienced editor here sorry guys if this is a really stupid question.
