Hello folks!

I'm trying to create a sequence which includes several text 'Titles' and several 'Key Images' as backgrounds under the text. I'm fairly new to Lightworks, but I use a lot of 3d programs professionally. After creating a few of these effects and moving them around, trying to get the sequence and display order correct, my routing appears to have an error that keeps my clip from being displayed (black with text effects still visible).

I'm unable to reconnect the nodes (specifically passthrough nodes) and restore clip visibility, as shown in my attachment.

Does anyone know what's up, and how I might smooth out my routing to restore the video clip under my text and images?

Oh - I've just found a workaround. I was able to reorder some of my effects and connect them directly in a way that displays my clip and all the text and images. The blend node still throws me for a bit of a loop but I'm starting to understand a little more about the routing system.

Attached, an image of my workaround in case it helps anyone with a similar problem.

I'm still interested to know why I'm unable to connect passthrough nodes, if anyone has the answer to that.

Welcome to the forum,

Because you are using the current version 14.5.

In the future version 2020.1 (currently still in the beta phase, but shortly before the release) you can.

It doesn't really matter usually. Most times you can do exactly as you have done in your second post and achieve the same result.
