Hi... I have Sapphire V2 for the Symphony Nitris. I'm trying to apply sapphire effects to simple text created in the title tool. From reading threads in this forum, it sounds like I just need to have background footage on V1 and my title on V2, and click the "apply to title/key" button, but that doesn't work for me.... my background footage is still affected along with the title? Am I missing something simple?
Hi Allan -- what particular effect are you using? There are a few, such as LensFlare, which render over the top of their source. Those naturally overlay the whole image including the background. For those, if you want (say) the flare to be cut off at the edges of the text, you can just step into the title and apply the effect directly to the fill.
That should definitely work. In that case, you're probably alt-dropping the Blur onto the title rather than just dropping it (to replace the title effect). Alt-dropping an effect nests it, so in that case the input the effect sees would be the result of the title effect, which is already composited (i.e. the title over the bg), so it would blur everything.
