    Effect Question

    I have a timeline with 2 video tracks, one has the video and the other has a title.  When I apply an effect to the video track, I can view the effect by scrolling the timeline, but when I play it back I get a black screen.  I notice on the track with the title that there is a thin red line along the top of the title track for the duration of the effect.

    If someone can tell me what I am doing wrong I would be most grateful!

     

    SemperFi,

    Camilo

    Re: Effect Question

    Have you tried rendering the effect?

    Re: Effect Question

    Yes, I should have noted that I have rendered the effect...

    Thanks for your response

    Under the special menu, is "render on the fly" active?

    Yes, render on the fly is active and the effect has been rendered after being applied.

    Carl, you asked me about posting a screen shot of a timeline once before.  How do I go about doing that?

    Hi,

    Camilo:

    Taking a screen shot might be different on your computer, but on my laptop it's Fn+Prt Sc (make sure you can see your timeline on the screen when you do this), then open up Start Menu > Accessories > Paint and press CTRL+v to past the pic into it.  Save it as a JPEG.

    When you reply to this thread there will be a button under the compose window that says Add/Update.  If you click that you can navigate to the picture you saved and attach it to your reply.

    ciao,

    Re: Effect Question

    Thanks for the instruction.  I hope this works.  Notice on the title clip the small red line above the transition.  It did the same thing when I tried to insert a freeze frame.  When I scroll through with the mouse I see the effect, but when I play back the screen goes black for the duration of the effect.

    Re: Effect Question

    Hi Camilo,

    The effect on V2 with the blue dot on it is not rendered.  Park your blue position indicator on it, right click and choose Render at Position (not in front of a machine, so the working might be slightly different).

    Re: Effect Question

    Well, that did the dang trick...  Any reason why that did not render when I selected the render icon and rendered the timeline that way?  Do you always have to do the right click and render in position like that on an effect?

    Re: Effect Question

    My preference is to mark the entire timeline end to end, all layers, and "render in/out". That will render the entire timeline, unless you have a nested fluid motion clip somewhere in the mix, which I find I must step into and render manually at position. And any effect that has a blue dot MUST be rendered to play in real time. You can usually, however, get a fairly decent slow motion preview of an unrendered effect when playing it back in the effects mode. Reducing the display resolution improves the performance of an unrendered preview.

    Whether you use the render button or the render at position command from the menu, what gets rendered is whatever is closest to the blue position indicator.  In your case that was the transition effect on V1.  If you'd parked on the effect on V2 and pressed the render button, it would've rendered the effect on V2.

    If you want to just render everything all at once, mark and in and out around the whole time line, right click and choose Render In/Out.

    Re: Effect Question

    What that was showing was that your effect was rendered all the way up to where the red line starts. The red line indicates unrendered sections of a partially rendered effect.

     

    Since that was directly over the transition on V1, my suspicion would be that you changed that transition effect and rendered it after you had rendered V2.

     

    Since adding or changing anything on V1 unrenders the effect on V2, you should do an "expert render" after any changes like that. You can get to expert render by right clicking on the timeline. Expert render only renders what needs to be rendered which is a time and drive space saver.
