This section will grow over time to cover the essentials of the MLT FX application including DVE, colour, key, blur, graphics, text and plug-ins. The aim is to provide a guide to the tools available for users to then explore and develop using their own creativity. There are many different ways to use FX - with a few guiding principles and examples of best practice, the tools can be used for an infinite number of applications.

The first set of MLT FX tutorials are designed to give an introduction to the workflows and menus. Different processes inside the MLT FX menu are demonstrated with examples rather than just describing the functions of buttons, with additional examples of combining processes in later sections.
