Extending a fusion clip (changing length)

PostWed Aug 01, 2018 12:16 pm

I have created a fusion clip with a short text animation that should be used as intro.

This fusion clip is 10 sec long. Now I would like to add some more text animation. For this the original fusion clip needs to be 5 sec longer. I do not find a way to do that. Is it really not possible to changing length of an existing fusion clip?

I looked for adjustments allowing me to change the duration time from 10 to 15 sec. Did not find something.
I tried to simply expand the fusion clip in the edit tab – it does not work.
Then I tried to create a new fusion clip 15 sec long and then copy all the nodes from the old one in it. Copying is possible, but after 10 sec screen gets black (and the nodes sine up in red, indicating something wrong)

Any suggestion how to solve or work around this?

Thanks
Martin

If you copy nodes they will retain the length of the original clip. You have to click on the Keyframes button in the Fusion tab and change the duration of each node from there.

Thanks Eric for that information!

But I am not able to worke out how do that: Using Resolve 15.0.0B.065, when I activate the Keyframes window in the Fusion tab I see the bars for all the nodes I have created. And off course I see their length (number of frames). By left click on a particular bar (node) I can use a slider to shorten the bar (= length of the node?) from either the right or the left side, but not extend it.

So, I tried the different options I get by a right click on the bar or on the name of the node. But I can not find a field with the time value or number of frames. Number of frames are to be seen in the Metadata window, but no way to change this.

Finally, there is a small button right under all the bars in the Keyframes window, offering “time”, “T-Offset”, “T-Scale”. Towards the right hand of it is a blank field/space, but you can not type a value in here.

So, I may have overlooked the correct option for the change of the duration or I may have searched at the wrong place.

Thanks, Martin
