Please make a new transition: Film Dissolve
A video cross-dissolve is different from the way dissolves were created in the film lab.
The way to emulate a film dissolve is easy: fade the head clip to black, fade the tail clip from black and combine the two clips using an ADD operation.
This creates a different look than the video cross-dissolve. Take a look at the images below. These are both the middle frame of each transition; you can see that the film dissolve preserves the highlights, instead of equally weighting the images.
I know I can do this by hand in LF, but I'd like to use this frequently. It would be better to have a packaged transition that could be dragged into the timeline.
Thanks for considering my request.
