Playlist: Crossfading Between Bright Media Becomes Temporarily Dark

From MXWendler Wiki

This applies to all different OS and MXWendler versions

Problem

You created a playlist with bright media ( eg. sky footage ) and during cue fades, the resulting image goes temporarily dark.

Solution

1. Go to the preload tab.

2. Open the playlist preloads.

3. Change the layer mode from 'Picture in Picture' to 'Add'. (A)

Background

'Picture in Picture' is defined by: place media B inside media A with opacity X. During the crossfade between the two layers, the bottom one and the top one are faded to eg. 50% ( 0.5 ), so placing an image with 50% fade inside an image with 50% fade results in a 75% faded result.
