I am using version X.1. When I add a dissolve to footage that has been stabilized, the image pops bigger when the dissolve completes. It's like the cropping that occurs with stabilized footage doesn't happen during the dissolve then immediately kicks in when the dissolve is over, resulting in a noticeable and annoying jumping of the image. I've tried re-rendering, re-stabilizing, re-doing, but this looks like a built-in bug. Can anyone suggest any work-arounds other than not using a dissolve on stabilized footage?
I'm not totally sure, but it might also work to simply lift the clip above the primary storyline temporarily, extend it and stabilize it, then shorten it again and overwrite back to the storyline. then place the transition.
Sorry I am coming to this conversation late, but in case anyone is still monitoring the thread, I recently experienced the exact same issue — and I can confirm that manoucho's solution works like a charm. What I don't understand is WHY it works — probably because I know nothing about the science of compound clips. If any of you are still checking in, I would appreciate any insights into why creating a compound clip lets me edit stabilized video without any glitches in transitions such as dissolves and others. And either way, many thanks for this solution, manoucho.
The cross-dissolve is working on the Compound container, it's not directly affecting the clip inside of it, thus the stabilization is not misguided by the cross-dissolve, so to speak. The Compound container limits effects, alpha channels, etc, to inside the container and not affect anything outside of the container.
