i remain confused about how WL (9, pro) manages crossfades in the montage in relation to track IDs
i drag an album’s worth of tracks into the montage, use my preset in CD WIZARD to space them by 2 seconds and make my IDs (i have “create markers at clip boundaries” checked, do not have use SPLICE MARKERS or “create markers at crossfade points” (at this stage, because i haven’t yet made crossfades))
then, as i go in to edit individual gaps between tracks, if the client has requested some crossfades, i manually drag those and edit the fades and such.
what happens at this point though, is that up in the CD window my END and LENGTH points on those tracks have turned into dashes - instead of times and… if i recall correctly, the tracks won’t properly export or burn to DDP…
if i go in and move the track START marker of the fading-in track to be AFTER the END marker of the fading out track, my END and LENGTH times pop into existence again…
but, what if i want the track start ID to be at the beginning of the fade in… instead of at the end?
i’ve managed to get by all these times, but more out of guessing and confusion… i’d really like to know what is going on so i can properly do what i need to do.
i’m still somewhat new to WL, so it’s all part of the learning curve.
so my question is… how do i create crossfades correctly? without messing up the END and LENGTH times?
