Chapter 10. Adding Effects > Comparing Effect Types

Comparing Effect Types

Although the previous section describes effects by what they do, it’s just as useful to classify them by how they’re applied. In Premiere Elements, effects fall into two major categories: fixed effects and standard effects.

Fixed/inherent effects

Motion effects, opacity, and volume are called fixed effects. This isn’t meant to imply that you can’t adjust or animate the settings over time; you can. Fixed refers to the fact that these effects let you control attributes that are inherent to the clip: its position on the screen, its level of opacity, and its volume. A better term might be built-in effects, inherent effects, or intrinsic effects. The upshot is that you don’t have to actively apply these effects to a clip; they’re always listed in the Effect Controls window (which you’ll learn more about soon) (Figure 10.1).
