I applied some effects to my video and once I got done, I rendered it as MPG and closed the project.
Now, I want to go back and change the look and feel a bit more by undoing some of the effects that I applied. Clearly, I'll have to re-render the entire video.
When I open the project file, I don't see the effects I applied to the original footage. Shouldn't I be able to see those effects in the project and be able to delete them? After all, isn't that the idea of the project file i.e. Original Footage + Effects + Transitions is the project file which renders the final output.
Is it a setting on my computer or do I not see the effects applied to raw footage in a project once I render the video and close the project file?
Did you right-click on the clip(s) on your timeline and select Show Properties?
It always helps to know what you have tried, Sam, so we know what to recommend.
That did it. Thanks.
You can always see the effects/transitions applied to the clip/project.
Whichever clip you are interested in, there are few ways to do so.
Click on that clip, and go to Edit > Effects/Transitions (whichever you wish to see/edit), there you can see, a button "edit effects" or "edit transitions".
Also, in the edit panel, you can see which effects/transitions have been already applied.
