I am using Movie Edit Pro Premium 2019 (latest update) and I can not get the effect animation to work correctly. I wonder if someone would try a small test. I am using the Gleam effect (from the variety pack). I am able to successfully animate things like Ray Length and Intensity. BTW, I am trying to do this to a simple picture and I have done it before in an old project about a year ago but since then, that project no longer properly animates and I also can't get it to work correctly with a new and simple project. But here is what I am trying to do...
I want to animate the X and Y positions of the Gleam effect so as to create the effect of sun rays moving slowly. Just as a test, I was trying to animate the XY position from one corner of the picture to the opposite corner. I have tried typing in values directly in the editor and using the curves on the timeline. What always happens is when I change one of the values, usually, one of the other values changes to a seemingly random, usually very large number, sometimes even "infinity". When I say one of the other values, I mean either the X or Y value of the keyframe I am changing or the other keyframe. If I try to change that value back, then one of the other values changes and so on. I have tried removing the effect an starting fresh, using the reset for the values, etc.
My Hitfilm Variety Pack is version 1.0.7910.52712 and my MEP is version 188.8.131.52.
Since this used to work the MEP has updated a few times and I believe the Hitfilm Variety pack has also updated. Perhaps I will try reinstalling older versions of those to see if they work. I will also check for new updates of the Hitfilm.
