    Premade FX not working anymore in 2018.12.1

    I have had a bin of premade FX for a few years and after upgrading to the most recent version of Media Composer they no longer seem to translate properly to clips when dragged over.

     

    I have only noticed it with animated scaling, for example going from 100 to 105%.

     

    I drag my premade effect across and the clip will have a start keyframe but no end keyframe, usually when I go to the end of the clip it has scaled up by 0.1 or 0.2.

     

    Anyone else come across this? I'm loathe to recreate all of my premade FX.

    Thanks very much

    Re: Premade FX not working anymore in 2018.12.1

    Hi Marianna,

     

    The FX would have been made in version 8.3, 4 or 5 I'm not 100% sure.

     

    I'm running El Capitan 10.11.6 but I had the same thing happen at work on a PC running the latest MC.

     

    I've been using these FX for years and not had a problem before so am certain it's not my bins.

     

    Thanks

    Re: Premade FX not working anymore in 2018.12.1

    Hi Marianna,

     

    just checking in in from work, the same thing happened but with a newly created premade resize effect.

    I came in this morning and my 3D Warp with a scale increase from 100 on the first frame to 105 on the last frame doesn’t work. It’s as if once shutting down MC, it forgets what the effect was or is somehow maintaining the original duration between key frames rather than scaling them to the new clip length.

     

    any help would be appreciated.

     

    All the best

    Perhaps you have keyframing set in Fixed rather than Elastic mode? Once set, it becomes the default for newly created effects thereafter.

    Good suggestion MikeyB.   

    Can you check that and report back?

    Re: Premade FX not working anymore in 2018.12.1

    Hi Marianna,

     

    Just checked, dragged over one of my older premade FX, key frames are ELASTIC and same problem.

     

    Good suggestion but as I said, I’ve been using these FX for about 4 years now with no problems until 2018.12.1.

    Re: Premade FX not working anymore in 2018.12.1

    I wonder if the OS might be a contributing factor.   2018.12, 2018.12.1 and 2018.12.2 were not appaorved for El Cap.  The min OS to use with these is 10.12.6 Sierra.........

    Macintosh v10.12.6, 10.13.6, 10.14.2

    I can create a case but support is going to push back on the OS as we found issues with the newer MC and older OS....

    Re: Premade FX not working anymore in 2018.12.1

    Hi Marianna,

     

    The same thing is occurring on my machine at work which is PC running Windows 10. In fact that is the machine I did the above keyframe check on.

     

    Cheers
