Lesson 6. Special Effects: Using Effect ... > Copying effects, keyframes, and sett...

Copying effects, keyframes, and settings

Once you have set up and applied one or more effects to a clip, you may want to use the same effects and settings on other clips. Doing this manually would be a lot of work, but there is a much easier way. Using the Paste Attributes command, you can apply identical effects and settings to any number of clips. You'll use this technique to copy the effects from Pie.avi in the Tint Sequence to Bookstore.avi and apply them to Bookstore2.avi, Bookstore3.avi, and Bookstore3-split.avi.

1.
Make sure Pie.avi in the Tint Sequence is still selected in the Timeline. Choose Edit > Copy.

2.
Double-click the Bookstore Sequence to make it the active Timeline.

3.
In the Timeline window, hold down the Shift key and select Bookstore.avi and Bookstore2.avi and choose Edit > Paste Attributes.

4.
Click Paste.

5.
Preview Bookstore.avi and Bookstore2.avi by render-scrubbing in the Timeline ruler while holding down the Alt key.

The effects you originally applied to Pie.avi are now also applied to Bookstore1.avi and Bookstore2.avi, along with the settings you selected. You also need to apply the same effects to Bookstore3.avi and Bookstore3-split.avi.

6.
In the Timeline window, drag the selection tool over Bookstore3.avi and Bookstore3-split.avi in the Timeline to select them, or click on them while holding down the shift key.

Because you have not used the Copy command since you copied Bookstore.avi, the Paste Attributes command still contains the effects and settings from that clip. You can simply use the Paste Attributes command to reuse these settings.

7.
Choose Edit > Paste Attributes.

The effects and settings from Bookstore.avi have been applied to the clips you selected, so the last four clips in the project now have identical effects and settings.

8.
Preview the project, or render-scrub in the Timeline ruler while holding down the Alt key.

9.
Save the project.
