    UI bug discovered with Image effects in MC 8.5 and 8.6

    There is a UI bug in Media Composer 8.5 and 8.6. It was reported to me by my users and I've done extensive testing to confirm the details with a clean build and new user and project settings.

    If you apply an image effect to a sequence (e.g. Mosaic or Paint effect) and have the shape highlighted, clicking the 1 frame step button forward or backward (or using the keyboard shortcut) actually causes the shape itself to move around the screen instead of stepping the video forward or backward. The odd thing is it does not happen with the 10 frame skip button, which behaves properly. If you deselect the shape, the 1 frame step buttons work as expected.

    This bug did not happen in MC 8.4.

    Can any Moderator repro this and report back, if found bug, I'll have this investigated by support team.

    I see it here but I think it is a feature, as the up and down cursor keys nudge the shape up and down. Designed behaviour? Deselct the shape and yes, you move along the clip.

    This was not the behavior in 8.4. If the change is documented somewhere in 8.5+ I cannot find it. Furthermore, the 10 frame skip button does not exhibit similar behavior. Shouldn't that move the shape 10 times as much as the 1 frame button?

    Intuitive design would utilize the arrow keys on the keyboard for moving the shape instead of the frame step / skip buttons. If this is an intentional design, it's a poor choice at the very least and something multiple users have complained about to me. I would request that it be changed back to the 8.4 behavior even if it's not a bug.

    OK - I agree. I couldn't find an 8.4 but in 8.3, the L-R keyboard keys step through the clip, as you say, but the Up-Down keys do move the wireframe in the monitor, so a kind of halfway house.

    Farhad,

    I created a case and will have the escalation team look at it.  Case # 03062071

    Roger - I added you to the case so you will know what they find as well.
