The FX Manager utility provides user with a set of powerful tools for adding video effects over the clips. Adding effects can bring a special visual characteristic to the clip. You can edit and preview the clip in real time, without waiting for rendering. The strength and position of any effects you apply are determined by the values you control.

The same video effect can be applied multiple times to the same clip with different settings.

Important
The FX Manager window is available for Clips with previously added effects via FX Manager in Cinegy Desktop version 10.5.

If the clip contains previously added in FX manager effects, the corresponding icon will be displayed:
