TOPIC: Adding Crossfade removes one channel of Stereo audio effect?

Adding Crossfade removes one channel of Stereo audio effect? 1 week ago #196234

Hi! I've been wondering why there keeps being missing effects on one part of my stereo audio clips periodically -- I assumed I was just making a mistake, but I isolated the culprit today and it's whenever I add a crossfade to the clip that one channel of the effect is removed. To demonstrate:

Here's the clip with the effect on both parts of the stereo clip:

And now, after I right-clicked and added a crossfade to the tail:

(Look at the blue effect icon -- or where the blue effect icon used to be -- in the bottom left corner)

Weird eh?

Has anyone else had this happen to them? Thanks everyone.

Just a thought - have not tested - if those tracks are grouped - try to un-group and re-group.

The bottom track 'inherits' SFX from the one above - perhaps that has been disrupted by the crossfade???

This bug is another example for the overwhelming complexity of the interaction of 'Autotrack sync', context sensitive commands, grouped tracks and multiple and differently working ways to add transitions. No big deal for users, if it works, but for developers to make it work.

I wonder what will happen as soon as segments are selectable in the timeline with some future release.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...

In as much testing as I could do today - so some initial observations only

- This does not occur if the SFX were placed independently on each of the tracks
- Does not happen in the above tracks are then grouped.
- seems like it is somehow associated with the 'inherited' SFX
- this does not occur with all media types
- seems like it does not happen with separately recorded audio
- seems like it does not happen with media types where audio is extracted by LW

- Inherited SFX are not as clear cut as in previous versions
- The tracks need to be 'swapped' (Mark/park Alt+s) for the SFX copy to take place

If this has happened - a quick fix to get the show moving again - if the tracks are grouped - ungroup them and 'swap' tracks - that replaces the missing SFX - swap again and tracks are back in the original positions - with Crossfades and with SFX in place.

The above is based on single observations without multiple confirmation tests - but I'm pretty sure the 'fix' will undo any damaged sections.
