Review

Working with effects can become quite a daunting task. Experiment, explore, and render effects so you’ll become familiar with their different parameters and attributes. This chapter certainly covered a lot of material in relation to effects, but in reality it only skimmed the surface. Look for some more effect tips and shortcuts in Chapter 16, “Power Editing Tips”.

  • Avid Xpress allows you to edit on 24 layers of video.

  • A basic two-layer effect is the superimpose.

  • The Picture-in-Picture effect defaults to 50%.

  • If you recorded material from analog format, you’ll need to remove the blanking around the frame.

  • The PIP, Resize, and 3D PIP effects can have advanced keyframes.

  • Advanced keyframes have their own graphs, which allows you to have more control over how frames relate to each other.

  • The 3D PIP effect can rotate an image in true 3D space.

  • Color effects create more of an effect as opposed to correcting color.

  • Using the Color Correction tool, you can set the black and white points of an image.

  • Avid Xpress Pro allows you to pan and zoom in/out of a still image larger than the native frame size.

  • Clips can be slowed down, sped up, or reversed with a motion effect.

  • Avid Xpress can create freeze frames.

  • The Expert Render tool only renders what needs to be rendered.
