Deactivating FX in multiple clips
on Feb 16, 2011 at 4:36:56 pm

Hi Everybody,

a Q concerning FX in clips on timeline: I know, how to remove multiple filter in multiple clips at once, by right clicking and choose remove attributes.
How can I do the same operation, but not removing them, but just switching them off?


Thanx.

Sascha

No function for that, but how about duplicating the sequence and removing the effects from the duplicate.

Thanx. Yes, I thought about that as well, but if I want to e.g. re-position clips or do other things with them - which are easier & faster when the effects are off, how do I get those adjustments then quickly back to the SEQ where the FX are turned on?

In the RT drop-down over on the left side of your timeline you will see that one option is "play base layer only." Try it...

Thanx David, but I also know that one.
In my specific case it just didn't help, since I had in the V2 layer a slug Line with Widescreen bars in it, which I did wanna see - to do the right framing.
Just the effects should have been off.
It's those little things that bother me sometimes about FCP workflow - that and a proper masking system and proper audio key frames ;-)

Any idea possiblity to achieve that?

Nothing wrong with the audio keyframes - just use automation

Very good point - never tried it that way, cause the keyframes put manualkly suck.
By the way - is there any way, I can connect my Oxygen 8 or Akai Midi Controller to connect to FCP?

Hi,

I tried the automation, but it still gives me this hideous curve just before it hits the silence - there's no way to fade down linear in FCP and it's really a pity.

[Sascha Engel] "t's those little things that bother me sometimes about FCP workflow - that and a proper masking system and proper audio key frames ;-)"

For motion graphics you have Motion. You can turn things on and off there (and a whole lot more)
For fine audio work you have Soundtrack Pro. (several different types of audio fades exist there)

Final Cut Studio is a suite of programs, and for better or worse, is intended to be used as such. I don't believe any other NLE has what you are looking for either (Maybe Vegas, on the audio issue)
