Hi,

For some reason when a put an image on top of another, lightwork only shows the image on the top track. I cropped the (black) sides of the image and the image below isn't visible. To test I also made the top transparent and you still can't see the image on the track below. See attached.

Thanks

Hello,

That's most likely cause by video routing. Could you show a screenshot of the Routing panel at the same playhead position, please?

There are two unconnected blocks. Connect the output of the 3D-DVE on V2 to the background ("bg") of the 3D-DVE on V1.

Ok, thanks. Why has it always worked before without doing that extra step?

Can you show one where it has worked before?

I don't have any projects loaded now with it (deleted them). I did a small video for a friend 2 months ago with the same software version and I lined up 2 images next to each other. I've never known about that extra step. I always have to crop the image to remove the black around it and then the below image shows up - well it used to.

It's always a good idea to have a look at video Routing if effects don't work as expected.

Lightworks has automatic effect routing, which helps on very simple effect structures efficiently, beyond that, how should an automatic anticipate what you wish to achieve with two video tracks and two DVE's, there's more than one possible solution, thus sometimes you'll get what you want and sometimes you won't.

The major downside of this automatic, as it is today, there's no way to disable it, at least temporarily.
