    some edit features not opening?

    Just been doing some changes to a video, but when I went into edits the ENHANCE and the other features would not open, the button just went orange.

    I shut down and restarted but still no showing.

    On a previous version of Pinnacle I was able to put in the cd and do a repair, but on Pinnacle 21 there is no option there.

    (another strange thing is that when I put P21 disc in, it came up with a different serial No that was on the disc cover of the one I purchased)

    Not quite following you.

    Enhance is in Corrections Editor, not Effects Editor.

    If you have "enhanced" the clip while in the Library, you will see a little "gear" in the upper right corner of the clip. Click on it and it will open up the Corrections Editor.

    If the clip/asset is on the timeline already, move your mouse pointer to the green bar at the top of the asset until you see "fx", then right mouse click, Corrections>Edit and it will again open the Corrections Editor window.

    You can do the same thing with a clip on the timeline by going to Editor>Effect>Color>Image Correction. It's the same thing and you can copy/paste it to other clips on the timeline easily.

    Re: some edit features not opening?

    Sorry,

    its a new project. I positioned and cut the area I wanted to enhance, went to EDITOR, then to CORRECTIONS, then to ENHANCE, but nothing came up.

    I also checked on ADJUSTMENTS, STABILIZE and WIDE ANGLE and still nothing.

    I also checked all the other aspects :- PROPERTIES, EFFECTS etc and they all worked.

    I then opened a new movie, placed a video onto the time line, clicked on editor, corrections then enhance and it came up perfectly!

    As it was a new project, could that be the cause?

    Or do you think I should remove and replace Pinnacle 21 to cure this problem?

    regards

    Re: some edit features not opening?

    Did you place the clip on the timeline first before going to Editor? Is the clip highlighted?

    It has nothing to do with being a new project or having PS21 installed. I have PS20, 21, and 22 installed on my computer.

    Now... if you take your clip or asset and place it on the timeline, highlight it then go to Editor>Corrections, you will NOT see Enhance or Snapshot. You have to select the asset while it's in the Library to see Enhance.

    If you do start with asset on timeline and select Corrections, a green bar will appear on top of the clip on the timeline. You can access Enhance now by moving the mouse pointer to the green bar, fx>Corrections>Edit.

    The same color adjustments are available in Editor>Effect>Color>Image Correction CPU.

    Yes, the clip was on the timeline, but will follow what you wrote and have another go.

    Another error I didn't notice to start with.

    I had 2 clips I cut from the main movie, but they were on the lowest timeline, about 10 minutes from the start of the movie.

    I then returned them back into the main timeline, went into edit and it all worked fine.

    Sorry for wasting your time by me not knowing what I was doing.

    regards

    No problem.

    But it's always good to provide a screenshot if you can.

    Re: some edit features not opening?

    maybe I am not looking in the right place -- but when I'm editing in the "Source" window, I don't see any corrections or enhancement options.

    The only apparent option to apply to the video is adding in/out marks.-- then sending that fragment to the timeline.

    (normally I edit from the timeline, btw).

    I assume you are talking about the Corrections menu.  (The Properties tab is next to it.)

    Re: some edit features not opening?

    Of course you are not going to see them.

    To see Corrections, you see all those clips you have in the Library? Double left mouse click on it.

    Want to see Effects? 

    Place clip on timeline. Click on it to highlight it. Now, right mouse click on it and then select Effects... 

    Or... have you taken the time to look through the user manual?
