    I'm new to FCE and I am incredibly confused.

    When I try to use the "chroma keyer" effect, it doesn't work. Nothing changes in the canvas when I use it. The effect shows up on the "video" tab of the viewer window if I click "view match frame" on the bottom of the canvas window. However, the effect doesn't hold for anything else. From what I've seen on tutorials and such, the effect is supposed to be in real-time with the canvas, and affect the sequence itself on the timeline.

    Is this simply something that I may have accidentally clicked that isn't allowing this to happen! Help! Thank you!

    What version of FCE are you using and what tutorial do you use?

    What sequence and clip settings do you have?

    Can you make a screenshot of the timeline, effect editor window and the canvas?

    Is Real Time enabled? Look into the manual on page 881 and the following pages.
