    The order of your effects plays a big part on how they behave, much like layering in photoshop.

    For instance, I used a “Water Pane” effect (adds rain drops, like they were pouring on a window…campy, but fun.) on a clip

    I watched it and realized that the background should be slightly blurred. Stacking a Gaussian blur onto the clip blurred the raindrops as well…no problem, simply find the adjustment window for the clip (on the side of the viewer) and slide the “Gaussian” above the “Water Pane” – suddely, the water drops were focused, and the background was blurry.

    Good thing to keep in mind if you are using multiple adjustments/effects on a single clip.
