Final Cut Studio: October 2011 Archives
- If a video clip contains audio content, the audio waveform appears by default in the bottom half of the clip's silhouette in the Timeline.
- By default, all audio tracks display a black line. This line, or envelope, represents the volume of that track's audio: the top of the bar is louder, the bottom of the bar is quieter.
- The Matte blend mode is applied to the shape layer, NOT to the layer to be masked
- If any clip in your Timeline is set to a Matte blend mode, it will cut through all of the layers in your Timeline, including the background layer.
- Arrange the layers to be matted in the correct order:
- Click the shape layer to select it, then click the Inspector icon () to display the Inspector window. In the Inspector window, click the Video tab at the top, then click the Compositing category to display its contents. Change the Blend Mode to the appropriate Matte mode (we're using Stencil Alpha for this example). The shape layer will cut through all of the video in the Timeline; we'll fix that next.
- In the Timeline, click and drag to select BOTH of the top two clips, the shape layer and the to-be-cut layer. Right-click on the clips, then click New Compound Clip (or press Opt+G).
