I'm working with a DJ matte and 2 pieces of video. I can get the first layer to show through like I want, but when I try to get the 2nd video clip to show through I either get nothing or a very dark image. I'm a long time Media 100 user (version 3 to present) who bit on the reduced cost 844x system a little over a year ago. I'm still learning the system and I'm sure this is a user problem. Any help would be appreciated.

Not sure what you mean by DJ matte, or what you're trying to accomplish. More details makes it easier to problem solve.
If you're trying to composite two video layers, using a matte to cut one of the layers away, you can paste the matte into the target video track by using the little "M" button next to the target icon in the source window. You can also drag and drop the matte onto the video clip.
If that doesn't help, be a little more specific and I'll be happy to help.
