    Composite Modes

    Would really like to be able to use composite modes (Add, Multiply, Overlay etc) within MC without having to leave the software and without having to purchase additional software/plugins.

    The paint effect has composite modes.

    Re: Composite Modes

    I should have clarified better. I need what the DMN Transfer Plugin offered. Here is the description of this plugin: 

    Transfer is an AVX™ plug-in for Avid® editing systems that allows you to composite video tracks using transfer modes (also known as blending or apply modes) similar to those available in Adobe® graphics and effects software.

    Normally, the video in a higher video track completely obscures the video in lower video tracks. Although you can use a Superimpose effect, your only blending control is for opacity. By using a transfer mode, you can control how the pixels of a video track blend with the pixels in lower video tracks to create a stylistic effect.

    The Transfer plug-in also lets you control how much blending is performed, as well as how the transfer mode settings are interpolated between key frames 

    (This free plugin is 32bit and outdated.)

    The composite modes in the paint effect are limited. I used a lot of film clutter composited over footage in my work and the paint tool can not composite that the way After Effects and FCP can.

    Joel,

    I too find it a strange and frustrating ommission.

    I used DMN transfer a lot before we lost it's functionality.

    BCC composite works well, but as you say it needs to be purchased.

    AvidFX comes included... and has composite modes... you can set up an AvidFX effect template and use within MC.

    Agreed that is should be a feature of 3D Warp really.

    I would really love to see this feature too. The Boris plug-in worked well, and then I upgraded to 6.0 and those all went away. It should be added for sure. I miss using my film clutter effects too.
