I had a shaky shot to I experimented with Smoothcam. I didn't like the effect so I deleted the filter.
Now it doesn't matter what I do or what clip I use, but any new clip to my timeline is auto Smoothcam, BUT it doesn't have Smoothcam in the Viewer: Filter.
If I play the clip from Finder, it plays just fine in QT. If I play it directly from the Browser in Viewer, it's just fine. But when it hits the timeline, it's filtered without the ability to remove a filter. It doesn't matter if I drag it from the Browser to the Viewer first of the timeline first. It doesn't matter if I drag it from the viewer to the timeline or if I use shortcuts to move the clip around.
The rest of my editing has been fine, but I can't move forward if everything from here on out has Smoothcam! I'm sure there is a super super simple reason (like a simple box to check/uncheck), but this problem is driving me up a wall.
~ The sequence I'm using doesn't matter.
~ I doesn't matter if I relocate the files to a new folder, it is affecting everything in Problem Folder
~ New files put into Problem Folder and unaffected.
~ Deleting and re-importing doesn't help.
This isn't normal behavior for sure, and there is no setting that would affect this.
Must be some corruption in that project file. Try creating a new project file and drag the working sequence to it. Then import all of the clips again. Maybe this will get rid of whatever's going on there.
