    Promoting a clip with default "T" (temporal) adjustments to a motion effect

    I am trying to use Source settings and have hit a roadblock. If the source clip has all the transforms "S (spatial) and "C" (colour)" transform already applied in addition to the "T" (Temporal), then it seems that I can't promote it to a motion effect or apply a Time-warp effect either - in order to speed-it-up or slow-it-down.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Am I missing some work around?

    Thanks,

    Stepping into the clip on the timeline should be able to get you down to the motion effect level.  Is that not working here?

    Open the Motion Effect Editor with the cursor on the clip.
    Find the promote button in the top left corner.

    Gives you Timewarp, Trim to Fill doesn't usually work anymore.

    Nope. Had alrready tried this. Can't step into the clip unless there is an effect applied. And then too, the "stepped-in/nested" clip has the "S" and "T" an therefore a motion effect cannot be applied to it.

    Nope. Had already tried this. Have to apply an effect to Step into a clip and even then the "T" and "S" remain on the nested track - so I cannot apply a timewarp to it.

    Yes. While this ususally works - it only seems to work if there is ONLY a "T"/temporal change. If there is both a "T" and an "S" then it does not even allow you to open up the motion effect editor.

    Trim to fill works well for me usually - just not in the case of "T"

    I've tested it and it works for me. I can press the promote button in the motion effect window and the temporal effect turns into a timewarp effect – even with T/S/C applied.

    Same here. It's one bug I dont have! Even if (as usual) I have the full house TSC I can always promote the source T to and editable motion effect. What version you on?

    I'm on 2022.12.

    Currently running off my MacBook Pro laptop. Will try it on my Windows system and check.

    Thank you. At least now I know that it is supposed to work :-)

    Re: Promoting a clip with default "T" (temporal) adjustments to a motion effect

    My personal experience is the GUI for Motion Effect is that it has become very glitchy with 22.7 and 22.12. It can require a lot of clicking in and out of the Motion Effect editor and clicking around on different clips in the sequence. Click on editor, click on clip, click on editor again, click on different clip, click back on editor, click on desired clip - hoozah. Eventually, Motion Effect editor will figure out that you are on a clip with a Timewarp and give you the option to Promote and manipulate the effect. Highly highly glitchy.

    There are multiple GUI glitchy issues with 22.7 and 22.12. Example, Symphony Color will sometimes highlight the previously selected clip in your timeline, not the currently selected clip, when you attempt to edit the color. Very confusing. "Wait, which clip am I altering? The highlighted clip in the timeline is different than the clip showing in the monitor." Very confusing.
