Hi! Here's Rant #2,699
Please, oh Lord, please, will the the miracle of software engineering please forever fix the frame-flex bug that prevents settings to stick??? Please oh please.
If for some reason, you don't know what I'm praying for....
Whenever you change or animate settings in FrameFlex, if you don't exit the tool by clicking the timeline grey bar, most often than not, whatever you did won't stick even 'tho the settings are there. The ONLY way to consistently get it to stick is to exit each and every single one by clicking the timeline grey bar.
I'll open a support case 03169054 for this issue.
Allow me to join my pastafarian prayer to this :
Please, oh great FSM please, will the the miracle of the great software engineering fix this !
This is rather painful when using Framflex to mockup anything from a full frame image, like a rack up/down or a pan & scan outside the normal crop area. You constantly have to step in and out of effects mode via the timeline to compare with other shots in the same sequence.
Would be good to be able to see the results on the sequence monitor too, not just the full area with the crop box on it. The Player side becomes effect results, but only that of the frameflex, it does not display the full results if you have other effects stacked up (like a mask or spectramatte with another element for instance). Switching which video track is being played to the OUTPUT monitor doesn't help... (This being on MC 7.0.5).
Ok, I've got a case open, delivered examples to AVID and also had a screen-share with tech to show them all about it, so hopefully they can get this bug put to bed... not bed bugs, we don't want that.
