Re: transitions not working

Generally, you can't, because there must be an overlap for you to be able to see the transition. A razor does not create an overlap of "handles." Roll the adjacent ends you created back by at least 15 frames each, then snug them up together and try again.

Re: transitions not working

If you just razor a single clip you can't see a transition because you are transitioning from one thing to the same thing. So just use two different clips.

Or take your single clip and razor it in two places. Delete the middle part and push the two pieces together. Then try your transitions.

Re: transitions not working

If you're doing a music video you should be cutting picture separately from music. Place your music on the audio track and then lock the track. Then cut your picture.
