Walt, you applied the filters to each individual clip. Would there be any harm in nesting your timeline in a new sequence; then applying the Broadcast Safe and Levels filter just once to the overall sequence. Thanks.

To my knowledge there's no harm in doing the Nest thing, but when I have a Master Timeline, I never like to nest the entire thing so I can still see all the clips, etc....

But as with everything else in FCP, 10 ways to do just about everything. :)

Ah Mr. Wally,

I go back to alpha and luma matte tutorials of yours. And you continue. Great to see more practical advice from a pillar of the Cow (sounds like a strange image, but true). Thanks, and I hope to go far enough to give back as much as you.
