Tip #382: Stacking Order Makes a Difference
Effects process from top to bottom
Whether you use Adobe Premiere or Apple Final Cut, the stacking order of your effects makes a difference. Let me illustrate.
In this screen shot, the clip has two effects applied: Sepia and Border. On the left side, Sepia is above the border. So the image is first colorized, then the cyan border is added.
With the image on the right, the Border is on top. This means that the border is added, then both border and image are converted from full-color to Sepia.
If you apply more than one effect to a clip, remember that effects process from top to bottom. You can see the order of your effects in the Inspector (Final Cut) or Effect Controls panel (Premiere).
