TOPIC: saving Image Key for use in later projects

saving Image Key for use in later projects 2 months ago #203377

Hi. I am making a short "animation" with an image key in lightworks, and want to be able to use the same animation in later videos. But I can't find a way to save the sequence. It involves the image key navigating around the frame, and it takes me quite a while to program, so I don't want to have to do it for every video I make. To be clear, this is my logo coming into the picture and then moving back out of frame after som seconds, so its going to be present in all videos I make. Can anyone help me with this? I thought about making a video with alpha channel, but as .mp4 doesn't support that, it's not an alternative.

You can save effect templates that you can use in all projects:

Thanks! That helped a lot, but I have audio effects that go with the image key. Any tips for how to save those along with the image key?

Do you mean sound effects as media, living on audio tracks?

Would a short logo sequence that can placed into each new sequence work? You can unfold the effect, so that you can use replace in a video track if need be.

If you had the pro version you could export an image sequence of the logo animation with alpha channel and use it in all your projects. Since it appears you don’t have the pro version, you might want to use something like Fusion to create the image sequence animation.

Without access to your specific layout

- in your edit and with all tracks selected mark/park the image sequence section
- from the edit drip-down menu select Make/Copy/Marked section.
- use that part-edit as a source for whenever the image sequence is required
- make adjustments to the newly placed 'image sequence package' as required

- There may be some matters to do with V and A track available which may need to be addressed
- without seeing at least a screen grab of your edit and timeline it is difficult to guess what they may be.
