    Track Matte

    Trevor Hughes Level 1


      This is doing my head in as I know how to do it but it's not workingfor me. It just a normal track matte.

      So I made a new seq and yes it worked but only once. Made a new clip beside it and nothing happens.


      so I have spent a day now trying to find out why but I have to ask you guys for help. is it me or is it a little bug.


      track 1 video clean

      track 2 video with three-way colour corrector - change for area in mask, added track matte to layer 3, matte Alpha.(+rgb curves+fast colour corrector)

      track 3 pp title/mask.


      and the same set up on the next clip but Track matte while not work no matter how much I tale it off.


      Thanks again for you time and help

          Are you applying the Track Matte Keying Effect to your Clip on Video Track 2, and pointing it to the Matte on Video Track 3?


          Can you post a screen-cap of your Timeline, and also show the Effects Control Panel, with the Clip on Video Track 2 showing?


          Good luck,

            Hi Bill,

            This is so weried I know how to do this where to point ect ect.

            If i move the clip with the track matte on I get a crash.

            I made a new seq and used same clip and it works. so I made a second clip next to it and it worked. I copyed those clips back to the old seq and it did not work...

            It's been going on for a long time.. what do you know about seq setting with track mattes? do they only work well on some and porly on others..  all Ideas to find a answer.


            answer to your above quest yes I am doing it right and why should I get a crash if I move the clip with the track matte on.

            I think if we can answer that we will have fixed it.


            over to you Bill

            thanks for hanging in there.
