Effects aren't showing when video is paused.

I'm trying to grade a video, but I can't see the effects while the video is paused, only when playing. Can we fix this issue? It's beginning to get on my nerves.

    It sounds like you may have accidentally or intentionally changed the viewer display option to one of those modes where effects are not executed. By default, the fastest mode does not execute effects. 

    At the top right of the viewer, click the options menu and check that your paused and playback settings are setup as you need/desire. While you are at it double the that the paused and playback resolution are what you need/desire.

    The user guide, under "introducing the viewer" discusses these options.

    Buttons and icons on the viewer frame to see / select the paused / playback modes is due for 2020. 

    Yeah, not really. Keep adding 'suggestions' to the wishlist.

    @Palacono I've been making that argument myself. ;)
