    Hey mate, I would suggest you check this page:
    If you search for random, you’ll find a couple of expressions that should work for you, especially this one: :randomseed(floor(time/6)) ; return random()

    If you want a tutorial on how to use this expression, I found this video:

    Hope this helps!

    February 6, 2024 at 7:50 am in reply to: Issue with using Luma Keyer on an adjustment clip

    What Michael is suggesting is partially correct: the luma keyer on the adjustment clip is blurring certain areas and mixing them with the black underneath. The issue is that even if you duplicate the clip, that won’t solve your issue as the adjustment clip affects all video lines beneath it. In short, the luma keyer is not ment to be used on an adjustment layer.

    My personal suggestion would be, if you want to avoid having the duplicate clip in the timelines and also be able to easily edit the clip (or replace it) to use it either in the fusion page or even better in the color page.

    Hey mate, are you working with reels or editing everything in one timeline? Are you working on a 1080p or 4K timeline? Looks like a graphic bug to me and it might be related to the size of the individual timeline compared to the capabilities of your system.

    Hey mate, could you be more specific or post a magnified image? The screenshots open quite small and at a first watch they look ok to me.

  • Have you tried to change the resampling filter to Mitchell or Lanchzos?

    Hello Aldo,

    may I ask how the proxies were generated in the first place? Are you using the Media Management tool to relink to the original files? If so, how are you doing that?

    Hey mate,

    unfortunately, I only saw your post now. Hope this is still relevant! Anyway, in the Compositions Settings section, you want to check the EXport metadata package. That should allow you to generate the VOLINDEX.

  • Hey Aron,
    This requires some roto to cut yourself out of the video. If you have the studio version of DVR you can use the magic mask for that and it should be fairly simple. If you are running the free version, though, it’ll take a lot of time. Let me explain how this works.

    The first thing you need to do is to duplicate the recording two times and put the three copies on top of each other. The bottom layer will be your drum loop, the mid layer your bass and the top layer your piano.

    Next, you want to take the drum layer and make a loop for the drums. For this, you cut the clip where you want the loop to begin and end and then you simply duplicate that clip as many times as you need.

    For the mid-layer, you need to start doing the rotoscoping. The idea is to isolate yourself from the rest of the background, again using the magic mask if available or doing a manual roto. If you don’t know how to do roto, you can also find someone (for example on Fiverr) to do that for you and have them deliver a matte to you. You don’t need to roto everything, just the bit where your body is still near the drums. Then you can simply cut the clip and continue it with a crop.

    Then you simply loop the mid-layer as you did for the drum and you repeat the previous step for the top layer.

    I know this is not the easiest to explain via text, but I hope I was clear enough!

    Hi Tim,
    what you need to do is, in fusion, select the text node. Then right-click on the text box in the inspector and choose “Character Level Styling”. Then you’ll be able to select parts of the text (from the screen, not from the textbox) to change them individually. You can also keyframe the changes from the modifiers tab.

    As for the edit page, that is normal, as a general resize overrides the specific adjustments.
