OK, bear with me here as this is my first official shot at using AlumDV2. I found a great rocketpack plug-in I want to apply to a clip of my miniature zipping across the screen. The figure moves across the screen and towards the camera so when I apply the effect I will need to both reposition and resize it frame by frame. Since I'm working with a plug-in, which is a complete animation sequence I guess, am I applying the entire animation to each frame of my clip or just a piece of it? I'm not real clear on how a plug-in works with a moving object...

An animated plugin in Alam is split into frames just like the video, so each frame of the animation will be in a seperate frame of the video. To follow a moving object, you put your effect on the object when you want it to start. Then you go to the final frame that needs the effect, and position it again. Then view your animation, and Alam will have done the steps in between. If the effect is in the wrong position at any particular frame, you simply reposition it.

Thanks a million for the explanation, Owen. Makes sense now...
