    What's up with Motion Effects Editor?

    Hi,

    Regarding a previous project and wanting to reverse clips, my thread on this forum was resolved and this then helped me to speed up other clips (http://community.avid.com/forums/p/133336/760419.aspx#760419).  However, now on a new project, and parking on a clip with a green dot on it, when going to Tools > Motion Effects Editor, there's no "Promote" button, and therefore I can't get to alter the clip's speed.

    Please advise,

    DC

    What format/frame rate are the clips, and what format/frame rate is your project?  What version of MC are you using?

    The green dot does not mean that a clip explicitly has a time warp (motion adapter).  It could mean that there is a Frame Flex or Color Adapter.

    Try adding a time warp effect from the effects tools.

    FYI, in 8.4 the green dot goes away and individual icons show up for adapters that Avid has added to any clip. Definitely a good thing.

    Good luck,

    Jef

    Re: What's up with Motion Effects Editor?

    Hi, in this instance I have resized and CC'd the clip first, if that makes any difference. As a workaround, I have now put the original clip into the Source Monitor and and adjusted the speed, and intend to make all resize and CC changes later. That's fine. But for now, now with the speed-adjusted clip to work with, can I messa around with varying rates, etc.?

    You found part of the correct solution  -  that any motion effect has to be at the bottom of any stack of effects.

    Instead of putting the clip into the source monitor, you could step into the effects till you reach the bottom, apply  the motion effect, then step out and you've still got the effects applied.

    Re: What's up with Motion Effects Editor?

    Hi, it's been a while, and I had to leave aside that idea for the moment, although Now I want to get back to it.  May I ask, can I step into a clip with lots of fx, and at the bottom of the stack now introduce a motion adaptor?  Can you point me to a tutorial?

    Thank you,

    No idea about tutorials, but just, as you say, step in, do a motion effect, then step back out. Depending on what effect you've added, you may need to extend or shorten the clip. (And probably render the effect)
