How to attach multiple effects
You can attach more than one effect on the same track and create an effect stack.
How to modify the length of a single effect
You can make an effect last longer or shorter by dragging the boundaries of the effect brown bar.
If your effect is part of a stack and it starts or ends at the same time of other effects, all the effect group will be affected.
How to adjust the position of a single effect
Drag and Drop is not a reliable way of moving effects.
If your effect is part of a stack and it starts or ends at the same time of other effects, all the effect group will move.
How to edit the parameters of the effect
Most effects come with editable parameters.
Click on the magnifier in the Brown bar to open the effect dialog box.
How to change the speed of a video edit
You can make the whole video edit playing faster or slower. Just:
All the istances of that very source file in the timeline will have the modified framerate.
How to make a telephone-like voice
The voice of a telephone is distorted because the sound is somewhat simplified, recorded with only a limited range of its frequencies.
Test the effect. You might want to adjust the frequency knobs to get the perfect sound.
If the level of the sound is too low, move the Level knobs to a higher value.
The Wetness knob affects the intensity of the effect. In fact it is a mixer that controls how much of the original sound (dry sound) gets mixed in with the processed sound (wet sound).
