Hello all.. I'm a little bit confused, hoping some others can help explain about using Composite shots.. (I am used to the old school VisionLab, where you could import a bunch of different pieces of footage onto the timeline, and then add effects over the top of them all..) Its taking me a bit to get used to having to create "composite shots", and i am a bit unclear of their purpose vs. the older method..
-- My first question is, "should i be converting each video clip on my timeline into a composite shot before adding any effects?"
Next, I'm using Hitfilm Ultimate, and have imported a few different clips, and wanted to splice them together.. (just different shots of some guys with guns running around..)
-- My second question is, in order to add effects (like muzzle flashes and/or some color grading) to each of the clips, do i need to convert each one into its own composite shot, and then add the desired effects onto each composite shot individually? (like if i got the color grading just right on the first clip/ composite shot, do i have to copy/paste that setting to each of the other composite shots/ clips?)
-- Or, lastly, is there a way to combine multiple clips into one composite shot, so that you can throw an effect onto the whole timeline, and have it apply to each video clip that is contained in the movie? Any and all comments are appreciated..
