    Re: Avid Deko 1000 import animation

    Clips can be used in the background or as a layer.  However since clips are part of the Clip Plane they will ALWAYS appear behind any Deko layers or Deko background regardless of the layer number.

    The new PowerClips option, available on Deko3000 running version 5.x, will allow small clips to be placed in Deko layers and maintain their visual priority pertinent to the layer number.

    Re: Avid Deko 1000 import animation

    I am not sure what you mean by "imported animation".  A cel animation would run in a layer, and therefore would be in front of a background clip or layer clip.  A Quicktime .mov file would be transcoded to a Deko .mxf file, or clip, and would therefore be behind all Deko layers.

    And one clarification of my earlier statement that clips will always be behind Deko layers - it is possible to reorder the planes via the buttons along the top right of the GUI.  The "normal" way is to have Deko in front of all the other planes, with the CG plane to the left of the other planes.  But is is possible to move the CG plane to the back, by dragging the button to the right of all the other buttons.  This is not advised unless you are absolutely certain you will remember to move it back, either manually or via a macro.  If you move that button behind the Clip, Video or Objex you will not see any Deko layers or Deko background on the video output if any of those other planes are active and fullscreen.  For clarification of this concept please refer to page 603 of the Deko User Guide.
