Can i add an effect to my time line on an individual area on a clip from my time line without affecting my who clip with cs3 premiere pro?
Dlawb, I think this feature is called Dynamic Link, so do some reading on that.
Despite having a fairly powerful machine, I've never been able to get it to work at anything other than a snails pace.
Eddie your free source wont let me see the info I need it only does the basics if you could just tell me that would be great help thanks
The manual and help file have a purpose.
The PremiereProPedia has links to a lot of tutorials about dynamic link that teach you what you need to know.
I can't tell you what to do, I don't use dynamic link. Not everybody can afford the entire suite.

Razor the clip into 2 clips by using the Razor Tool. Make the cut in between the 2 sections where you want/don't want the effect. Apply the effect to the appropriate new clip.
Alternately, you could animate the effect using keyframes, making sure to put a Hold keyframe at the beginning of the section that you don't want to have the effect.
Hold key frame?
>Hold key frame?
I went to the help files and typed "hold keyframe" into the search box. The very first hit told me what a hold keyframe was.
The way I understand it, you start your video in Premiere Pro. You export it. Then you bring it into AFter Effects.
From there, you add your effects, and export again. However, the quality will never be as good as the quality you just exported from Premiere, because all video formats are lossy.
If you go and take an exported movie from AE now, and put it back into PP for some reason, your export from PP will then be further degraded.
I don't know how well I understand the concept, but I don't understand how you export from PP in the first place, inport to AE, and then export once again without losing any quality. It's basically impossible.
You can copy (CTRL + C) the shots you require from the timeline in PPRo and paste them (CTRL + V) into a AE composition.
Wait ages for it to conform from RGB and then add the effects you need. Save the composition and then go to PPro.
Set Import Composition from After Effects (think it is just above the Import option in File) and bring the relevent file in from there. I would recommend lots of memory if you are using this as it completely slows your system down otherwise.
