Here's something to try with Vegas 4. See if you can....

    Drag a clip onto the timeline. Add about a 2 second fade curve at the end.
    Apply a transition to that fade. Now, try to manipulate that transition
    with Key-frames. It won't let you. It just keeps taking you back to an
    earlier time in the clip. It will only work if you grab a solid color
    (black) from the Media Generator and apply your transition going from your
    clip to black. Then, the key-framing works fine.

    So, it would seem that it won't let you key-frame a transition that is
    leading out to an empty part of the track.

    Could someone let me know if they have a different result?

    A transition is a way to go from one scene to another. For example, a wipe
    from right to left, or a page peel, flash, a simple crossfade, or countless
    numbers of other varieties.

  4. Add about a 2 second fade curve at the end.
    It does let me keyframe the transition, but the sync to cursor isn't
    accurate. That is, the keyframe timeline doesn't match the area of the event.
    But if you make go ahead and make the keyframe adjustments , they affect the
    transition part of the event like it should. If you add the generated media
    and set the opacity to zero, all is as expected and it will give you the same
    result as transitioning to a blank area of the timeline.

    Cheers,

    Ahh, ok, It does let you keyframe, but still not as precisely as if you add
    the generated media. I'm glad this is a flaw, and not just a problem with
    my installation of Vegas. Good idea about making the generated media
    transparent.

    Thanks Craig
