    Flatten video tracks

    This should be simple but I can't figure out how to do it. Assuming that I have a master track, V1. I've built up 3 additional video tracks on a portion of V1. 

     

    I know I can collapse V2-V4 but I don't know how to make that behave like a Master Clip for the purpose of adding an effect to that stack, for instance a Picture-in-Picture.

     

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Once you've collapsed a set of layers, you'll see that you now have a submaster effect icon on those layers. 

    I'm not sitting by MC at the moment, but isn't adding another effect on top of an existing one just a case of ALT-dragging the effect on top?

    Be aware that because of the way Avid's effect architecture works, adding certain effects on top of a collapsed V2-V4 stack may also effect the V1 layer

    Yes, Bruno. That is what's been happening to V1. Adman's response seems to solve the issue.
