Lesson 11. Applying Video and Audio Filters > Copying filters and settings

Copying filters and settings

Once you have set up and applied one or more filters to a clip, you may want to use the same filters and settings on other clips. Doing this manually would be a lot of work, but there is a much easier way. Using the Paste Custom command, you can apply identical filters and settings to any number of clips. You'll use this technique now to copy the filters from Stool.mov and apply them to Roaster.mov.

1.
Make sure Stool.mov is still selected in the Timeline and choose Edit > Copy.

Note

Remember, you can see the complete name of a clip by positioning the pointer over the clip and pausing.

2.
Now select Roaster.mov in the Timeline and choose Edit > Paste Custom.

3.
In the Paste Custom Settings dialog box, click Settings, and then deselect Fade Control, Transparency Settings, and Motion Settings so that only Filters is selected.



4.
Click Paste.

5.
Preview Roaster.mov by scrubbing in the Timeline ruler while holding down the Alt key (Windows) or the Option key (Mac OS).

The filters you originally applied to Stool.mov are now also applied to Roaster.mov, along with the settings you selected. You also need to apply the same filters to several other clips, so this time you'll select those clips using the range select tool, which lets you select more than one clip at a time.

6.
In the Timeline window, select the range select tool.



7.
Drag over Press.mov and Dessert.mov in the Timeline to select them.



Because you have not used the Copy command since you copied Stool.mov, the Paste command still contains the filters and their settings from that clip. Also, because you already set up the Paste Custom function in the Paste Custom Settings dialog box, you can simply use the Paste Custom Again command to reuse those settings.

8.
Choose Edit > Paste Custom Again.

The filters and settings from Stool.mov are now applied to the clips you selected.

9.
Deselect the range select tool by selecting the selection tool ().

10.
Preview the project by scrubbing in the Timeline ruler while holding down the Alt key (Windows) or the Option key (Mac OS).



The first four clips in the project should all have identical filters and settings.

11.
Save the project.
