Adjustment Layers and Twitch

Postby mark_davis on 08/11/2008, 4:19 pm

Hi Everyone, I'm new to AE and Video Copilot's Twitch, so don't laugh at this question.
It has to do with adjustment layers and applying Twitch to them. I was wondering if this is ok or totaly the wrong way to go about it.
I have a precomp of my video that is 4 min long, that has some color correcting and simple transitions.
I want to apply twitch to it via a adjustment layer, but I want to use Twitch in about 4 different places though out the video. Would it be ok to make 4 different adjustment layers and apply Twitch to the area that I want or have one adjustment layer with Twitch turned on and off in the locations that I want to use it?
Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
Mark

I'd say to go for 4 different layers. That way you can give a name to each twitch to identify them more easily. You can also easily adjust each one indivually if you feel the need to.

Less keyframes = Less confusion

Hi Andrew and Bruesky,
I started out with the four Adjustment layers and after the replies from both of you I stuck with it. I made since to do it that way, but I didn't know for some unknown reason to me, If that was the proper way to go about it. Thanks again for confirming that it was OK to do it that way.
