Lesson 6 Nesting Multiple Effects > Changing the Order of Nested Effects

Changing the Order of Nested Effects

Although it isn’t the case for all effect combinations, there are times when the order of the effects in the nest is important. If the effects are in the wrong order, in some cases you’ll get the wrong result. The Resize effect is one of those effects whose position in the nest can be significant.

Let’s experiment with the very last clip in the sequence and see what it would look like if presented in a “cinema widescreen” aspect ratio of 2.39:1. To do this we will add a special masking effect to mask off the portions of the frame that wouldn’t be visible in that wider aspect ratio.

To add a film widescreen mask to a shot:

1. Choose TOOLS > MARKERS to open the Markers window.

2. Double-click on the LETTERBOX marker to jump to that location in the Timeline.
