Timeline indicates an effect is operating when Audio Mixer says it is not

May 8, 2013 8:45 AM

I'm learning about the Audio Mixer panel and effects. I set up a Bass effect in the Effects and Sends panel as a test. On page 341 of the Premiere PDF it states:


To bypass a track effect, click the Effects Bypass button near the bottom of the effects list until it appears with a slash.


I tried turning off the Bass as described, and it worked. I then went to the Timeline to hear if the effect had been turned off, and it was. However, at the top left of the audio timeline there is a box saying Effect 1: Bass, and two items appear as a sub menu: Bypass and Boost. So I chose Boost and the little box now said: Effect 1: Bass: Boost. But the bass wasn't being boosted.


It appears that you can turn off an effect in the Audio Mixer, but the Timeline still indicates the effect is operating.


Am I missing something, or is this a flaw?

    What you're seeing in the sequence is the keygrame selector, not whether or not it's operating.

    It's there in the timeline because it's a keyframe selector, and that's all it is.  Both Bypass and Boost can be keyframed individually in the timeline, so you need a way to select which keyframes you're seeing.
