Hello~

I'm trying to learn how to add timed lyrics to a video, so I need to learn keyframes.

I began the tutorial on keyframes from Cyberlink (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFXaP-EhQZs&t=44s), which starts by having you drag an fx onto an fx track.

I added an FX track, but I cannot drag an fx onto it. It grabs the fx, and then when I drag it down - nothing.

Thoughts, please?

Thank you~

In that YT tutorial, a clip has to be on the video track. It can be a video clip or an image like Icefall.png on track 1 in order to allow an fx to be allowed to be dragged to the fx track underneath it in the tutorial. Things may have changed since PD9 10 years ago.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to work either~

I'm not sure what's going on, but the process is pretty straightforward. Take a look at this short video and see what happens when you try the same steps on your system. You should be able to use any FX:



If you're still not successful, please make a screen recording like I did and share a link to it on YouTube so we can see exactly what's happening

That makes absolutely perfect sense and is exactly how I would expect it to behave. But this is what I'm experiencing:

Hi,

Only effects can be dragged to the fx track, color presets and LUTs (which also appear in the fx library) have to be dragged to the clip itself.
