Many years ago, we could choose to edit on two tracks, with a transition track between them. Adding transitions was easy, and seeing the timing of the transition was intuitive. The new way is clunky and annoying. (Back then I would trim one clip to the Out-point I wanted, then another to the In-point I wanted. Overlap them as much as I like, and drop in a transition. Now, the overlap is kinda invisible, and I always get surprises when I preview the fade, because on a one-second-fade it has "extended" an extra 15 frames from each clip. 15 frames from each clip that I specifically trimmed.)
