    Why are effects not working on still images.

      Why are some effects not working on still images?

      Like active camera or earthquake?

          It seems to me that to have an earthquake or busy camera, a series of frames would have to be moved  around by the software.  In other words, you need a video clip with distinct frames.  A still is one frame.

           

          You might be able work around this.  Put your still image in a dedicated project, share/export to a video.  It will have the many frames you need.  Bring it back into a project as the video rather than as a still.  You should then be able to apply your chosen effects.

           

          I didn't take the time to try this, but I think it should work.

            That is probably so and I will test it...

            However I would like believe that a still frame is not 1 frame when its is extended for x time, because then you made x copies of the frame.


            Sounds more like a bug to me.

            But thx, Ill report back if it works.

              Actually it does work on a stills but you cannot see it, as a still consist of copies of the first frame (as you have already determined)

              So the effect is applied to a sequence of  'first' frames.

              You can check this by adding the effect to a still and move the slider back and forth in the Applied Effects window.

               

              Bill's suggestion actually works.
