Applying and adjusting effects

You can apply one or more effects to the script, scenes, sequences, and media layers in your composition.

Add an effect

  1. Select the element to view its properties.
  2. Add an effect by selecting the Effects or Audio Effects section headers in the Properties Panel.

Studio Sound, Green Screen, and Ducking

These three are default effects in your script and are immediately visible in the Properties panel for quicker access. You still need to enable them if you want to use them.

Removing an effect

You can toggle on or off effects, or select to remove an effect

Disabling or removing Green Screen and Studio Sound

Both Green Screen and Studio Sound effects require internet access and time to process the first time they are applied to an element in your composition. After that, you can easily switch these effects on or off without reprocessing the project files.

Adjusting an effect

Once you apply an effect, click on Additional Settings icon.png Effect settings to view and adjust settings.

Applying and adjusting audio effects to individual sequence tracks

If you’re working with a multitrack sequence, you may want to apply and adjust audio effects to an individual track instead of the entire sequence. Adding and adjust effects in the Sequence Editor is done in the Properties Panel, just like you would in the main editor.

  1. Open your sequence in the sequence editor.
  2. Select the Audio Effects section header in the sidebar.
  3. Apply and adjust settings from the sidebar.
