How can I delete an effect from the Video Animation perspective of a clip?
on Apr 23, 2015 at 12:10:53 pm

I'm playing around with effects. I see that you can open the Video Animation of a clip and toggle the effect. But to remove it....when I follow the advice of this article (https://support.apple.com/kb/PH12615?locale=en_US), open video animation, select the effect and delete it....the entire clip disappears. What am I doing wrong?

I see the same thing in the timeline. I usually to to the Inspector and reset the parameters from the dropdown menu on that effect.

Not entirely sure I follow what you're doing... effects are controlled and deleted using the info panel. Keyframe are added and deleted in the Video Animation panel.

Hey Jeff -

I read the Apple article and it basically says open up the Video Animation, select the effect and hit delete. So (and maybe I am doing this wrong) I did a quick opacity animation. Opened the video animation, highlighted the opacity bar with my keyframes and hit delete. And that does delete the entire clip, not the opacity animation. Of course, this can be easily done in the Inspector, but the Apple article seems to suggest something else.

[Scott Witthaus] "Opened the video animation, highlighted the opacity bar with my keyframes and hit delete. And that does delete the entire clip, not the opacity animation. "

It referring to deleting an entire effect from a clip, not the keyframes. How are you going to delete the opacity parameter from a clip? :D

If you're deleting the entire clip, then you apparently aren't selecting an effect/parameter that is in fact deletable. Therefore the clip is (logically) deleted. Because if I apply an effect to a clip and do as described, the effect and not the clip is deleted as expected, yes.

But I also just simply use the Inspector for any like that. Going the route via the Video Animation tab is far too many click and fiddly in comparison.

From the Apple Help article:

Do one of the following:

Choose Clip > Show Video Animation (or press Control-V) to see video effects or choose Clip > Show Audio Animation to see audio effects, select the effect, and press Delete.

Select the effect in the Video inspector or Audio inspector, and press Delete.

It has to be an effect that was added from the Effects Browser in order to delete from Video Animation. It can't be Opacity, Distort, Trim or Transform because those are always attached to the clip. You can delete everything except Opacity but when you re-open Video Animation, Distort, Trim and Transform will be back.

Which was my exact point, yes. Opacity is not an effect that one adds.

Just for the sake of argument, wouldn't you say that once you animate the opacity, you have created an effect?

Sure. But this is about/affects any and everything that is explicitly under the EFFECTS section in the Inspector. Nothing below it (which also shows up in the Video Animation tab).
