wrong timecode essential graphic when i upgrade to master graphic
i found an issue when i simply do the "upgrade to master graphic" on my text animation. Here's my workflow:
On my timeline i start to write text and shapes. Then i start to animate it. When i'm ready i save it to my personal library as backup. Everything works well. But, if i need to upgrade this essential graphic to master graphic on my project, i found a big issue on timecode: for example, my essential graphic it's five 5 seconds long. When i upgrade to master graphic, this new "shape" clip it's 12 hours long, and my animation starts at 1 hour following timecode. This is the first issue, and last but not least, if i do double click to this new clip on my project, it open correctly to the preview monitor with IN OUT points from 1 hour to 1 hour and 5 seconds. After that if i put this to my timeline, the timecode clip portion starts to 2 hours, so my clip it's black. If i re-do this drag and drop, the shape's timecode starts at 3 hours.
If if delete from my preview monitor IN OUT points and i put only my OUT point at 5 seconds from start, from 00.00.00.00, on my preview monitor i see nothing, all black screen, but if do drag and drop on my timeline, i see correctly my good animation. What's wrong? Is it a bug or i have to ceck some preferences on graphic essentils panel?
Upgrade to Master Graphic converts your Graphic to a project item which means that it is not a child of the Graphic you converted it from and every new Graphic you make from it will always be an exact copy of that master. That is probably not what you want.
