    Effect Editor not displaying anything

    Hello all, when trying to add simple motion to a still image in MC, I hit the effect editor button and the window pops up, but it does not display any clips or effects. What is happening?

    If you want to edit a motion effect, you need to open the motion effect editor (it's under the Tools menu).

    It might help to know what you're trying to accomplish, as you seem to have applied a freeze frame effect to a still image.

    Hi abrownstein8087 and welcome to the forums. Not sure what You want to accomplish. That's the effect editor, if by simple motion You mean adjusting speed, as in a motion effect clip, You need to open the motion effect editor instead. If You want to move the still frame You have to apply an effect (resize, PnP, 3d warp) before opening the effect editor. Not in front of a system to double check right now, but You may need to ALT-drag the effect on top of a motion effect clip.
