Avid Studio: How do I use Effects and Transitions?

In Avid Studio, you can find your NewBlue effects by clicking on the Effects tab. They will be arranged alphabetically by package and effect name. Each effect preset will have its own icon, and you just need to drag the icon onto your clip to apply it.

Similarly, you can find your NewBlue transitions by clicking on the Transitions tab.

If there is no Effects or Transitions tab, Avid Studio lets you select what each tab does. If you are missing a tab, just click the “Add New Tab” button to the right of your other tabs, click on the name of the new tab to bring up a drop-down list, and select either “Effects” or “Transitions” from the list.

Once a new effect has been applied, adjust the settings to get the desired look. To open the effect editor in Avid Studio, just double-click on your video clip on the timeline. This will bring up the effect editor window. You can change your effect settings here, or select a new preset. Click on the “?” icon to launch the help file. Clicking on the “Edit” button will bring up the version and build number of your NewBlue product, as well as allow you to manage your activation and check for updated software versions.

Once a transition has been applied, adjust the settings for the desired look. To change your transition settings in Avid Studio, right click on the transition itself on your timeline, and select “Edit.”

This will bring up a small window showing your effect duration. Click on the “Edit” button on this window.

The effect controls for your selected transition will then be displayed. Clicking on “?” brings up the help file for that transition. “i” brings up the Info screen, which shows the build and version number of your NewBlue software, lets you manage your activation, and lets you check for new software updates. “P” lets you save or select a new preset. Or you can simply adjust the settings for this specific transition.
