How To Add a Transition to a Compound Clip?
If your compound clip does not have enough meat on both ends, simply right click “Open in Timeline” and extend the end of your clips inside the Compound Clip. This will also make your compound clip longer.
Outside of the Compound Clip Edit (in the regular Timeline see screenshot) You can use the “Trim Edit Tool” (Second icon next to the select tool) and click in the top part of your compound clip. Hold and move to the left or right. You will even see the ends of the clips indicated in white boxes.
Drag the Compound Clip to a position where you have space on both ends. Then simply drag & drop your Transitions to the Compound Clip.
