Within Avid Xpress Pro, learn how to create a page curl with different media on the front and back of a 3D page curl.

 To start, place 2 clips directly on top of each other. Make sure they are both the same duration. In this example I am using 3 second clips.

Navigate to the Avid Xpress 3D effect palette and place the same identical 3D page curl on both segments.

Next, click on the effects editor button which will bring up the Avid effect's editor window. Make sure you are adjusting the 3D page curl effect that is on V2.

You now need to enter into the Avid[s advanced effect's editor in order to access the controls for the front and back of the page curl. Click pink button in the lower right corner of the effects editor to promote the effect to the advanced keyframe module.

Within the advanced keyframing editor, twirl down the shape category for the page-curl effect. Select the show bottom only for the page curl on V2.

 Now repeat the same steps for V1, but set its parameters to show top only.  show_top_only.gif 

At first these parameters will seem a bit backwards since V2 is the top track, but it works. For review make sure your two page curl effects are set up like this. V2 (show bottom only) V1 (show top only) If you want to swap the media on the front and back, you'll need replace the media that you have on V1 and V2.
