PRE18 MacRetinaOS HiSra:Videomerge inverted or reversed

Postby DRThiess » Tue Jun 05, 2018 12:04 pm

Anyone know why? Given jpg with Orange Text letters on solid Black on PreE18 on video line 2: Apply Videomerge causes video on Video Line 1 to show thru where the text letters are (Orange disappears) and solid Black still there. Just the Inverse, Reverse, or Opposite of what is suppose to happen. I've seen this on Google Images

so I know it has happened to others as well.

What happens if you designate black as your Videomerge key color?

When I click "Apply Videomerge", a Videomerge window opens up on the right side. I take the eyedropper and click on the Black in the jpg and the little box in the video merge window turns black but nothing happens with the video merge. The underlying video shows through where the letters are. The lack of responses seems to indicate that no one else has experienced this problem. I did find a work-around on my own. If I open up the jpg in photoshop and replace the Black with solid Green, the video merge works just as it is supposed to. NOTE: I was born before WW II and did not grow up with high technology and have never had comprehensive training in computers, hardware, software, etc. Everything I know has been learned on a "need to know this"
ALSO: Pan & Zoom in PreE18 freezes my computer (the dreaded color wheel of death) but it works just fine in PreE13 which I am so glad I did not delete. I'll keep playing around with videomerge.

Sounds like you are keying out the orange letters. Are you just wanting the orange letters to be on top and no black background? I was not clear on what the issue you are experiencing.

Would it be easier to put a text layer over the top and just create the words? Sorry if I am not understanding what you want to do.
