Drop Shadow doesn't work with Cropped Video Clips
on Jul 24, 2011 at 1:37:22 pm

I've created a drop shadow effect in Motion 5 and published it to FCPX.

It works fine with still images: photos, logos, etc.

But it does not seem to work at all with video clips if I crop them.

What I'm trying to do is put a drop shadow around a scaled down
and cropped video clip that's sitting above a white background.

I've got the white background and clip in the timeline, but when I apply
my drop shadow effect, it works fine with the original image, cut not
if I want to crop that image.

Any ideas, workarounds?

thanks.

Crop your clip and then make it a compound clip (Option G). Add the shadow to that.
