Dissolves & Fades

Great program but....
Have recently had to edit a home movie DVD passed on to me.
It had a lot of abrupt scene changes both video & audio & could have been improved with some simple dissolves or fades at the abrupt cut points.
From what I have read on this forum VRD doesn't have a transition feature in either of its versions.
Is this the case ?
If so, is there a chance that this feature is coming & if so when ?

Thanks Pat. I had read that link & some other postings.
What I have gleaned is that the feature is coming, but could you indicate roughly when?

Jackson, they are not going to give a time. This question has been asked and answered many times. It is a feature that is not high on their list of priorities.

Shame.
Perhaps it could be started with just a fade to & from black with accompanying audio fade.
Any chance in the near future ?

Not likely. They appear to have other priorities, although I believe they will some day provide this much requested functionality.

That would be the icing on the cake. People are crying out for this feature and it keeps being promised 'some time in the future'. I don't think the VRD team understand how important this feature is.

I don't think we understand how difficult this feature is to implement. If it were easy, VRD would put it in to shut us up, or so it seems to me.

OK it may be difficult but perhaps someone from the company could help us out with a definitive reply as to their current & future position.

Nope. They have stated elsewhere that they are not going to reply to any more requests for dates until they have one. Therefore, they don't have a date to report.

2 more months have passed.
Is anyone at VRD prepared to comment as to when this feature may be implemented?

It's all very well for a member to answer for the company but don't you think it would be polite if they were to answer for themselves ?

As this has been promised for some time now (probably years !) I would appreciate a Company Update, say, just the answer to a few simple questions.
1 Is this a difficult feature to implement?.
2 If so might we see first an AV fade to Black/Silence ?
3 Some idea of when?

I have purchased VRD & VRDTV & am very happy with what they do but am frustrated at the lack of this requested feature.

Don't hold your breath. This feature has been in the wings for so long. I have given up on it. Which makes me think this feature is to difficult for them to include. In the meantime. They go ahead with including other features that seem to be way off track with what this program was originally designed for. And that was to edit mpeg files without having to re-meg. And fades I feel are a part of that...

Still hoping

At the risk of being accused of repetition, is there any hope of getting a fade/transition facility soon ?
I know I could defect to Womble but having paid for VRD (& not regretting it), I am reluctant to pay up a similar sum to Womble.
So guys what is the position ?
A simple fade to/from black will do me for now.
If any readers of this post agree, please do post that agreement so that the developers can see the strength of feeling.
If you don't post we may well wait forever & I will have to go to Womble.

It is now over a year since I started this thread & it would seem no progress has been made !!!
Perhaps someone at VRD could confirm that either the developers have no interest in producing this feature or that it is still on the list.
If the latter an ETA would be appreciated.
