    Re: a method to convert a resize effect in a PIP effect?

     You have to step in to the effect.  With a PIP or re-size effect applied to the clip, click on the step in button (an arrow pointing down located on the top left of your timeline by default). Once in, apply your effect, then step out using the up arrow. That's how you get effects not to affect all the tracks below.

     

    Good luck

    I think the question really is "can I convert a Resize effect to a PIP?"  In that case stepping into the effect won't help.

    I'm not in front of my Avid now, but this might work.  If you can promote the Resize to 3D it will become a PIP.  Then all that you would have to do is disable the background color.  If this doesn't work then I'm not sure that you can.

    Glad to help.  Personally I've never understood why Avid has two separate tools that essentially do variants of the same thing.

     Cuanto más aprendo Avid más lo odio. :)

    Trying to traslate: How much I learn Avid I hate it a little more. :)

     

    Thanks a lot.

    If I will had a MAC I´ll tried Final Cut and compare but how I haven´t it Isay ¡Viva Vegas Video!
