# Blender VSE - speed control and cross effect at the same time

I try to use cross effect between two stripes and set speed control effect to one of these stripes , only one of these effects works (the one which is on the top).

1. Add the speed strip (in your case to the rejs_anima... image strip)
2. Select the newly added speed strip (not the original image strip) and the second video strip (MVI_... in your case) then
