  • Reusing Custom Effects in Avid Media Composer

    As an editor, the ability to work quickly and efficiently is golden. The ability to store and reuse the custom effects that you have built can save you a lot of time and effort, when it’s close to deadline. If you know that you’re going to use an effect more than once in a project, like a... (read more)

  • effects on top of pan and zoom

    Hallew I have recently discovered the pan and zoom effect and it seems to working fine. Could someone tell me if it's possible to add further effects on top of the pan and zoom effect?

    Ever built a few layers of effects and then, noticed that you need to ad a new layer of effect somewhere in the middle of your composite? Used to be you had to add the video layer on top and, in segment mode, drag the upper layers to the new tracks one at a time. Recently I discovered that Avid has made... (read more)

  • Re: How to remove unwanted shadows?

    Nasty. I think Larry's suggestion is good - although you might want to try the 'lighten' mode in Paint Effect with feathering set to 2 or 3 (or whatever works). I just don't see that you've got enough wall to clone. The other option is to explain to the client that the shadow is a... (read more)

  • White Glow removal

    I am editing a dance recital that was shot with a theatre style of lighting and everything with a lighter color glows and is blown out. It looks ok but i would like to make just a fine adjustment to pull the glow out of the video. Brightness and contrast aren't really doing exactly what i want. I... (read more)

  • Re: CRAZY PIP Jitter!

  • Re: Loading Photoshop file

    To keep your motion predictable in Pan & Zoom, make sure that your Path is set to Linear, and then use the 'Velocity' options to control how Pan & Zoom treats each keyframe. The Path setting applies globally to the whole effect, and the Velocity option can be set for each individual keyframe... (read more)

  • render-on-the-fly

    I am unable to disable the render-on-the-fly option inside Avid. I think it's contributing to my editing lag, but I am out of ideas for turning it off. I tried to go into the "special" tab and un-check it but it is not allowing me. I am using Avid Express Pro without a mojo or any transcoding... (read more)
