That is the way it works.
Uppermost tracks affect the lower tracks in one way or the other.
You must organise the layers around this fundamental.
I can see how at times that is probably very useful. But it seems like one should be able to turn that feature off at will for certain effects. grrr....
Thanks for the prompt reply. I'll stop trying to fix it...and figure out a work around instead.
Its not a work around.Its not broken... Its planning what happens on what track.
Do you want to be a bit more specific with what you are doing and we may offer some tips.
Sure thanks. I'm wanting an animated AE logo to appear over an animated Overlay already in use in the time line.
V1 White matte as background
V4 Animated Overlay - using Set Matte - Luminance so that the white matte shows beneath it
V5 AE animated logo on white matte (currently this is all I can see)
Hope this makes since.
Does the Animated Logo have an alpha channel?
>Try a Luminance Key or create an alpha channel in AEFX on this clip
The Animated Overlay - any alpha and what sort of clip is it?
>Also try a Luminance Key or create an alpha channel in AEFX on this clip
The logo probably doesn't. This is the first time I've used AE in 10 years. Don't actually recall how to place an alpha channel in AE. The Animated overlay was purchased so it probably does but I want the logo on top of the overlay.
If you can open the Logo Project in AEFX re-save (re-render ) it with an alpha channel. eg avi: "Lossless with Alpha" setting
Check the Overlay against your matte clip by not having any clips above it. Premiere automatically recogises any transparency (alpha).
If no alpha try the keying suggestions. (What do you mean by overlay clip anyway eg what is it?)
Thanks, I found the included alpha channel in AE re-rendering now. I'll give it ago here in a minute.
The video is basically like a picture frame with a white matte around the footage. I have text above the footage and below it.
The overlay is just some soft animated lines that help fill up the white space with something interesting.
WELL HELLO LITTLE DOGGIES! It's working! Thank you! Now I might actually impress someone responsible for my pay...that's always a good thing. Happy Happy.
Youy may be better compositing the Overlay and the white matte ( white solid) in AEFX. YOu can use the blending modes to composite them .
Sounds like a better way.
you maybe able to use the blending mode in premiere effect called calculations. its a bit fiddly though.
Thanks for the link and the help.
Have a good day or good night wherever you may be...
