In this video, we’re going to discuss Segment TimelineFX versus Source TimelineFX in the Effects Environment.

This means that you decide whether your Image TimelineFX appears in the regular FX pipeline with all the other TimelineFX or you can apply it at the source media level with your format processing and colour management tools.

For the most part, you’ll probably stick to the default segment FX processing pipeline. But there might be the occasion where you see it necessary to first affect the source media before injecting it into the segment as part of a sequence.

For example, you might want to do technical corrections on the source media, like white balancing, and then perform your creative work on the segment using the segment’s TimelineFX.

If you have not seen or used the Effects Environment before I suggest going to the beginning of this series to give you a great start!
