Tutorial 4.1: The Envelope Editor

Hollywood FX uses the term Envelope to designate a set of keyframes that describe how an option’s value will change over time in Hollywood FX.

The Envelope Editor is normally hidden when you first begin using Hollywood FX (to keep life simple).

To display the Envelope Editor: Click on the Show/Hide Album button to hide the Album and make the Envelope Editor visible.
