    Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 25 - The Fluid Morph

    The final tutorial in this series created to assist Avid/Pinnacle Liquid users who are considering migrating to or have migrated to Media Composer.

    Instead of pointing out problems likely to be encountered in making the migration I decided to end on a more positive note and show one of the features in MC which will make you glad that you did migrate.

    One of the many new possibilities available to you in Avid Media Composer

    The Fluid Morph!

    Re: Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 20 - Fluid Morph

    I think it's great that you've taken on the task of helping Liquid users become accustomed to the ways of the Media Composer. 

    The FluidMorph trick is a great one, I use it all the time for interviews - I generally do a 6 frame (centered) duration so the "morphing" is minimized.  Also, there's a setting to switch whether you morph a still frame or video.  That can also help smooth out some of the motion blending.


    And finally, if it's an effect you find yourself using over and over with the same custom settings you can click on the effect's icon in the Effect Palette and drag it to a bin to re-use later.  Also, (in the case of FluidMorph especially) if you create a bin named exactly as "Quick Transitions" (minus quotations) and place any Transition type effects in that bin, then when you hit the "Quick Transitions" button ( "\"  on the keyboard) your customized transition fx will appear in the selection list.

    Re: Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 20 - Fluid Morph

     Thanks for the positive feedback.

    I have enjoyed making the tutorials and I am getting a few emails from around the world - all with positive reactions.

    I run them on my own site too and have had about 900 hits from about 20 countries.

    In the next day or so there will be links here on the Avid site to full size QT versions so that newcomers will be able to see them in better detail.

    Regards,

    PS. Thanks, too, for your tips.
