    Frame Flex how to apply **per clip** on timeline

    Hi:

     

    I want to apply a DIFFERENT Frame Flex amount for different clips on the timeline but can't figure out how. I was able to do this in previous versions of MC. If i apply a FF from the clip in the bin, it automatically applys/ripples to ALL clips on the timeline. For example, I want to have one clip at 100% and another clip from the same shot at 50% zoom in, but if I select and apply 50% in the bin, it affects all clips on the timeline.

     

    I am aware that I could use the Resize effect but I believe that affects the quality of the clip.

     

    FYI, the video was shot and transcoded at 1080p and I am editing in a 720p timeline as it is going to web, not broadcast. I am using MC v. 2018.12.2

     

    Duplicating the clip and applying a differnt FF from the original clip does not work as it still sees the original clip. Creating a Sublcip does not work either as no FF can be applied at all.

     

    In previous versions of MC I was able to change the Flex Frame after having placed the clip on the Timeline and changing the FF in the bin did not affect clips already on the timeline.

     

    Any ideas?

    This behavior is still working as you describe for me in 2018.12.3 (so take some solace in that.)  Perhaps you have corrupted user settings?

    Johnny...  I treid it as well and it works for me so user settings would be the first place to start as smrpix explained.
