The Effect Mode

When you add any effects to your sequence, they start with default parameters. For example, if you apply any transition effect from the Effect Palette, it defaults to centered on transition with a 30-frame duration. If you apply a segment effect such as Mask, you’ll notice nothing happens to the clip. These are the default settings, which are attached to each effect. Once an effect is applied, you can edit its attributes with the Effect Editor.

When you’re editing on Avid Xpress Pro, you can only be in three modes. (Not three moods, that’s another story.) You can be in Standard Editing mode, Trim mode, or the Effect mode. To toggle into the Effect Mode, place your Position Indicator on an effect in the Timeline and click on the Effect Mode button (see Figure 8.27).
