    effects question

    I have multi-layered keys collapsed into one track in order to apply a transition effect to them globally.  The added transition affects the base layer video beneath it.  How can I prevent this from happening?

    There are limitations within Avid as to how much layering and nesting you can do with effects.

    You may find After Effects is the way to go.

    Is there any way you can just animate each key individually?

    Thanks for your response.  I did try After Effects, but was suprised by the "jaggies" that were introduced.  My edges are much cleaner in my all MC-built sequence.  It seems the only transition I can use between these collapsed tracks is a simple dissolve.  You think I've reached the elastic limits of MC?

    You can try doing a Field render in AE; that sometimes takes care of those sorts of artifacts.

    Just make sure you interpret the correct field order for your footage and project.
