  • New Blue Alpha-based effects don't work

    Two effects I've tried (Shadow Drop and OUTLINE from VE4 and VE5) don't seem to work in Edius 6.5 and I'm not sure why. I take something really simple like a line of text, save it as HQ with Alpha. Try to apply the OUTLINE effect and nothing yet on the same clip it works beautifully in After Effects. Is it something I'm doing wrong or is it something with Edius's handling of alpha channel? Or is it New Blue's Edius implementation that's problematic?

        Are these settings correct?

        Titler with Alpha is a titler Pro clip saved as HQ (ALPHA). I drop Outline on it with a preset and nothing shows even after rendering. any thoughts?

          I noticed you have keyframes enabled in NB filter, I always disable3 that before I apply a preset

          your settings appear fine

          can you make sure the clip accepts drop shadow with the layouter

            Solution Found!

            I clicked the "I" icon in the new blue dialog and selected UPDATE. Turns out all of my New Blue plugins were not the latest. After updating, I re-opened Edius and the outline effect was there as soon as the program opened that project!

              That's great news! I'm glad to hear the updated versions fixed the issue for you.
