BokertoneHow do you move effect in FCP?

I have used Boris effects inside Avid.
When I apply an effect such as Lens Flare- I am able to move the effect by dragging it around the canvas window.
In FCP- when I try to drag the effect- the whole image moves instead of just the effect.
How do I just drag the effect while in FCP?

Also- is there a good training video for using Boris with FCP?
It seems much more difficult than using it with Avid.
Thanks.

Hi,

In FCP you need to click on the cross-hair point control in the controls window to activate any on-screen control before clicking in the frame to reposition the point that you want to move. And you need to do this every time you want to move it as the control is released by FCP as soon as you take your finger off the mouse button. This is just the way things are in FCP and has nothing to do with the filter itself.

Cheers,

Peter.

Thanks.
Is there a way to mark a universal keyframe?
The way I am getting effects to work is by keyframing each parameter on the first frame.
(They seem to key themselves after the first one)

Am I missing something- or does Boris just work so much easier in Avid?

I'm unclear as to how one would go about marking a universal keyframe in FCP ... perhaps someone else on this forum can chime in on that one. I know that Avid AVX 2 supports this but I'm not so sure about FCP. I think it may be on a parameter by parameter basis.

Each editing system sports a different API, which is how we program our products to work within a particular host environment. And each API has it's own set of idiosyncrasies. None are perfect. Have you tried using RED? When you use RED keyframing is the same regardless of the host environment.

Cheers,

Peter.
