The effect says [Layer only], what does that mean?

These effects need to be applied in a composite shot. After creating a composite shot, you can then apply the effect onto the media as a layer and adjust as desired.

They will not work if you are trying to use them on the standard editing timeline.

To create a composite shot:

  • Right-click your footage in the media tab > Make composite shot.
  • Alternatively, select Composite shot at the bottom of the media tab.

Your composite shot will appear in the media tab and from here you can drag it straight onto the editing timeline!
