Can you not use an effect/dissolve between video clips and images?

Sure you can. What does happen when you try?

I figured you had to be able to. When I try, it only wants to let me place it on the video side...it's not extending over to the image side.

OK...I figured it out. There wasn't enough "buffered time" for the transition to work. I realize now that my previous clips were all segments from longer clips...ie...they had plenty of material on either side (I just wasn't aware of the function at that time).

Roen is very wise and this is 100% correct. This concept goes back about 100 years.
