Fluid Morph for Avid Media Composer

Every once in awhile I run across an amazing feature within Avid Media Composer that I've overlooked.  Here's one of them:  'The Fluid Morph effect'.

Yes, I'll admit, this effect has been in the software for awhile, but I never realized how useful it is until now. The 'FluidMorph effect' is a transition effect that morphs from from clip to another. Suppose you have a 'talking head' clip, and you need to cut out a section of the interview without cutting away to 'B roll'.  You can use the 'FluidMorph' transition to hide the cut. 

Check out this example (in slow motion) showing the same exact clip with the FluidMorph filter applied to the second clip.

Truly amazing!  In the past, I would try to use a dissolve to hide the edit.  Now, with the FluidMorph filter, the transition is almost unnoticeable.

I've found using a duration of 5 frames of  'FluidMorph" is quite adequate to hide a jump cut.  To do this, simply park over the FluidMorph effect in the timeline and click on the Avid effect editor.

The effect editor dialog box will open.  Then enter in a value of 5 frames.
