(Maybe it only needs placed on the same track, so free item positioning could be allowed too. -> Just checked it! Works!)

Double clicking the dedicated video processor allows to choose presets which then only work on the track. Here is a short video of how to do it. I put a chroma key preset on the track and a opacity, zoom, pan preset per dedicated video processor over the image item.!X3p3ySwL!Ey_vKu9ci...vf1aOpAFpOHIOk

I personally think there should be an easier way to do this. wwwmaze and I were discussing this some month ago. Maybe a specific video folder could be the solution. A folder which creates a separate video stream with all inside and a those folder then build a true stack of videos. I don't know.

Hope, that helps a bit.


Interesting. That seems to work, although, maybe inconsistently. In an existing project with several layered video tracks, that worked and then didn't work. Opacity at 1 seemed to flip the background as well. Strange.

Another thing I tried just after posting this thread, was to create a separate video processor using the pan/zoom/opacity preset, and put it in FRONT of the chroma key processor... or on top in the list of plugins.

Seems like it could use some refinement.
