Chapter 9. Working with Video Effects > Understanding Effects

Understanding Effects

Xpress Pro has three types of effects:

  • Segment effects: Found on the Effect palette and edited in the Effect editor, these effects apply to entire Timeline clip segments. For example, if you drop a Color Correction effect on a clip segment in your Timeline, it affects the hue, saturation, brightness/contrast, and so on of every frame in that image.

  • Transition effects: Also found on the Effect palette and edited in the Effect editor, these effect apply to the edit points between clip segments. Transition effects include dissolves, wipes, and any effect that creates a transition from shot A (the segment before the cut) to shot B (the segment after the cut).

    (For more information on segment and transition effects, see “Applying Segment and Transition Effects” later in this chapter).

  • Motion effects: Usually created in the Motion Effect dialog box, these effects apply to source clips and result in the creation of new motion effect clips. Motion effects include fast motion, slow motion, reverse motion, strobe motion, and freeze frames.

    (For more information on motion effects, see “Using Motion Effects,” and “Creating Freeze Frames” later in this chapter).
