    Matte Effect Removal Changed In 2018.* Please Restore

       Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug, but when you delete a matte key off of a clip with alpha in 2018 (tested in 2018.7 & 2018.8) It now retains the matte layer and not the fill layer. This behaviour has been changed from what it used to be in 8.9.


    Further information that may be pertainent. If you use Avid 8.9 to cut in the clip with alpha. It will retain the Fill layer when deleting the Matte Key. This is true if you delete the matte key on a 2018.* system or on a 8.9 system.

    Conversly if you cut in the clip with alpha using a 2018.* system. It will retain the Matte layer if you delete the Matte key using a 8.9 system or a 2018.* system.


    It would be preferable if the delete effect command on a clip with alpha retained the fill layer. This is something we use a lot when creating playback reels for live shows. Alternatively if there was an option within the matte key to display the fill layer that would also work.
