    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    Earlier in this thread, there was discussion regarding a bug when keyframing BCC effects. Here is exactly what's happening.

    When using "Add to Active Parameter" for example, the BCC parameter being adjusted becomes deselected every time you change position in the timeline to add another keyframe, therefore, the new parameter value entered is not respected or remembered. That is where the limitation (or bug) is. If the parameter is supposed to be the 'active parameter', it should remain active until the user specifies otherwise. In other apps, the parameter remains truly active allowing you to move anywhere on the timeline and keyframe to your heart's content without having to constantly go back and forth to activate the same parameter you're working on.

    I have entered a bug report a while back, which I will modify with these findings. Thanks Matt and all for your input.

    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    This didn't occur to me now but I took a look and if you install and use the AVX 1.5 version of the effect it seems to work just fine.

    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    Yes, you are correct. AVX 1.5 was never the issue. This bug affects all Avid (including 3rd party like BCC) AVX 2.0 effects in Windows only. This bug does not affect AVX 1.5 effects in Windows, or AVX 1.5 and AVX 2.0 effects on Mac.

    For future reference on this issue I uploaded a short video to show how to get around it/avoid it:

    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    Nice video, Matt! This is a good tutorial on using Advanced Keyframes. Yes

    The issue discussed previously in this thread still remains though - and that is the keyframe on a control slider becomes 'deselected' when you change position in the timeline when "Add to Active Parameter" is enabled. This behavior doesn't allow a new parameter adjustment to be remembered before moving forward to a new keyframe/adjustment. It is a UI limitation, not an operational issue.

    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    To be honest I have never run into that issue.  I'll take a look at it!

    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    I think I know what you're talking about. 

    You are referring to keyframing in the Record Monitor as opposed to actually in the effect editor?

    I'm not sure our schedules will line up to get a web ex session but I'll take a look.

    If this is the case it happens with all effects not just BCC?

    Re: BCC Glow effect not keyframeable?

    Taken directly from the defect report...

    "...affects BCC and some Avid effects (Xpress 3D) when using the Add Keyframe button. This is an AVX 2.0 only bug (does not affect AVX 1.5 effects)."
