Merging Layers?

Is it possible to take two photos in a composite shot and merge them together so they are the same layer without using the "parent" feature?

    Take a look at the video tutorial on "Embedded Composite Shots." If your two photos are in a composite shot (let's call it "Edit.") and you right-click on the photos and select" Make Composite shot,"then the photos will get moved to a new Composite (let's call it "Photo Group"). Now, back in" Edit" you should see "Photo Group" as a single layer.

    Alternatively, you can always merge them, then export to a new image or video. That means you wouldn't be able to further edit that asset, but if you know you're not going to do any further editing after merging the two together it can be a good idea as it reduces the amount of overall processing/rendering on your timeline.
  • Any solution to this that's more viable? I would like to apply a shake effect two two layers (one vid, one image over a vid) to make them shake together, but I can't make them shake together if they are different layers.

    @DooshMook Add a Grade Layer above the video and image and apply the Shake effect to it. 

  • NVM the last solution is actually pretty viable. Thanks for anyone's help
