My sequence start from black,than i have to do a fade in with a very soft image (body skin),the problem is that the cross dissolve and the additive dissolve in FCP are too "strong" ,i don't know how i can describe it,but the image doesn't come "smoothly" ,the skin tone comes into the image like "circle"....this "problem" appear only during the fade-in from black into a some kind of shot,

One time a did an offline in FCP and than i finisced the online on IQ (quantel),i rememember that the fade dissolve on IQ was much better and accurate(much clean and precise...

Anyway,i usually have no problem with the cross dissolve of FCP from 2 scenes,but this fade-in from black give a really bad result...

any plug-in suggestion? (i am sure that should be some plug-in for that...)

Thanks!

Rather than fade-in from black, try putting a slug above your video track,
and then add the fade to the slug.
