Thread: Compositing Add On

    Compositing Add On

    I would like to see Newtek add compositing to speededit sometime later down the road. This would be one program that handles editing and FX combined to reduce encoding.

    Compositing is great. I'm not sure, however, if it's worth the R&D to get it up and running. There is a lot of compositing software out there.

    (It would one-up the competition, though.)

    You can do a lot of this with sub-projects, the "media agnositic" tracks within SE plus keyframable clip properties. I found that sub-projects can be CTRL-dragged to a Filebin and later used just like a clip in the same project in which it was created, or in a totally different project. (The sub-project shows up on disk as a project file. Its icon display in the Filebin at this point is not reflective of the comp but of one track in the comp - probably a simple fix.) About the only function I can think of that is missing are complex mask generation, and perhaps a way of merging or grouping a mask track and its effected clip track.

    I recently duplicated a project in SpeedEDIT that had originally been done usin Avid Media Composer and Boris Red. In SE I was able to build my comps without leaving tghe SE environment due to the positioning, cropping and property key-framing available within SE itself. So it seems to me that, unless it is a really complex comp, SE can handle it already. Anything too complex for SE should probably be done in DFX+, AE or Boris anyway, beccause it probably requires tools that you don't want to burden SE with at the expense of SE's leaness and meaness.
