    Collapsing clips and transforming without affecting the layer below

    I am aware that there are seemingly dozens of posts on this but after all of the googling nothing seems to work.

     

    What I have is a background video track on V1. Nothing on V2. A lower third paint effect background on V3. And a text layer with the lower third name on in V4.

     

    What I want to be able to do is group the text and text background layers together and slowly expand them, without affecting the background layer on V1.

     

    For all of the 'stepping in', 'collapsing' and everything else I'm reading about nothing seems to work.

     

    Is there a way for this to be achieved?

     

    Thanks

    I'm sure there's a more efficient way, but I'll be damned if I can remember it. So in lieu of a better answer I'd promote both the lower third background and the text to 3d, and then do the move to one of them and just copy the X,Y,Z parameters (or whatever parameter you're using to do whatever you're trying to do) from that one to the other one.

    Thanks. I can't quite believe that this is the best way too but Avid is strange sometimes with effects I think.

    Re: Collapsing clips and transforming without affecting the layer below

    I have this same question and have for a while.  Say I create a multi-layer bug or logo and want to resize it with one stroke as opposed to going into each layer and doing the resizes individually.  Is there any way to do this?  I've tried collapsing but a Resize, 3D or PIP effect will transform the entire scene.  

    Thanks,

    Michael

    ...background layers together and slowly expand them, without affecting the background layer on V1.

     

     

    Is there a way for this to be achieved?

     

    Thanks

     

    Sounds like this example may help you out:
