Transitions between clips VARY if a video is present

I'm having a strange problem i've never had. Everytime I drag a transition in between two PICTURES the transition is 21 frames long (which i want). It works with two images fine. However, when I place my transition in between two VIDEOS the transition is only 10 frames long. I can manually adjust it to 21 frames but i know there's a way to always have my transitions always be 21 frames long. I looked everywhere and have no clue how to fix this. I'm using Vegas 19. I attached a video demonstrating the problem. The top track I drag the transition to contains two images, the second track contains a video. You can see how the transition is reduced by half for some reason.

Do your videos have enough head and tail to cover that length of dissolve?

they're both long videos... it's the transition length that's varying. If they're two images and i drop the transition in between them, its 21 frames long. But if they're two videos it's 10 frames long instead. I can manually slide it over to 21 frames like i want but i don't want to keep doing something I know can be done automatically :p There's a video showing that I attached fyi

I just found out that this problem is only occuring when I use .AVI video files and not the other formats. Is there an adjustment I have to make to something so that it's stops behaving this way with .AVI?

You’re missing the point of transitions. The length of the transition is equal to the overlap between two events.

@klever187 Probably you missed this beginners tutorial: how to add transitions in Vegas.

The only other thing I can think of, but not likely, is the video is a different frame rate than your timeline.

Hey guys found the solution to my problem. I had "Enable loopin in events by default" unchecked. Once I unchecked this option everything worked fine.
