  • Adding effects to sections of a clip

    Hi all,

    Trying to add different effects to just a section of a clip. If I drag and drop an effect onto a video track it applies it to the whole clip. Can I crop it to a particular section?

    Many thanks in advance!
    Regards,
    Tony

    yes, slice the clip with the C key and then add your filter to the sliced section

      You can also use the blend filter to keyframe the effect on the clip...do it all the time. Cutting the clip with C will changes abrupt but you can ramp them up with the blend filter and fade them down.

          Just trying this with the blend filter. Basically I've spliced the clip with C. I've then applied the cartoonr effect to the front splice and I want to dissolve this to a native picture. I've used the Blend Filters. Put the cartoonr in the left section of the filter and "nothing" in the right side. I've then dragged the keyframe to be on the bottom half way through the timeline but it's not dissolving the filter nicely, just a brutal switch from cartoonr to non cartoonr...

          Could you explain in a bit more detail how I can transition smoothly please?
          Thanks in advance!

            You don't need to split your clip if you're using Blend filter. Put a Blend filter on your clip (WITHOUT spliting it apart), then simply choose where does yor effect starts.
            I never used cartoonr, but I guess it works like all the other.
            Just use the procedure you used before on one clip and it'll work. First keyframe goes full down, second goes full up.

            If you split your clip in two with C, then use the cartoonr on first, leave second clip native. Put Dissolve between (adjust your duration) and you have pretty much the same effect.

              Hi Tony

              What you need to do is copy the clip and place immidiately below in another track. Apply the effect you want to dissolve to on the lower clip then, using the rubberbands on the video effects on the original clip at the point you wish to dissolve to the "cartoonr" clip add 2 points one for the start of the dissolve and another point to finish the dissolve, say 3 secs along and lower the second point, then go to the end of the clip, grab the last point on the effects line and drag to the bottom of the track.

              I hope Ive explained this Ok, if not I'm sure someone will offer a different solution as there are many ways to do the same thing.

              good luck
