    Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug, but when you delete a matte key off of a clip with alpha in 2018 (tested in 2018.7 & 2018.8) It now retains the matte layer and not the fill layer. This behaviour has been changed from what it used to be in 8.9. Further information that may be pertainent...

  • Imported lower third turns white

    Hi All, a very strange thing has happened to me. I needed to import a lower third graphic with an alpha. So as usual my settings are: Image sized for current format Do not scale colours Do not invert alpha channels (Black = opaque) The lower third came in just as expected. I cut the matte key clip into...

  • RGB Image import for a matte key

    I'm importing a TIF image which has a gradient from superblack to superwhite, into a YCbCr 709 project, to be used as a matte key. Should this image be scaled to the legal 16-235 range? (Do 16 and 235 represent the levels of 100% transparency/opacity in the key?) If the image is not scaled to legal...

  • Applying Matte Key effects settings to other Matte Key clips

    Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to copy effects settings from one Matte Key and paste it to another. One thing that comes up quite often, is that I set a drop shadow for a Matte Key title and I have many other titles I'd like to apply the same exact drop shadow to. The only thing I have been...

  • Can't turn off opacity of Matte Key titles

    Hi, My director wants titles invisible for the new few phases of post, but doesn't want to remove them from the timeline. Because I can't turn off the clip in Avid, I tried putting a 3D warp effect on all the tracks and lowering the opacity in the foreground section. This removes the background...
