When you apply an effect to a clip, it is set to default values and is active for the duration of the clip. After you apply an effect, you can adjust its properties using the Applied Effects panel. You can make an effect start and stop at specific times, or adjust the values of the effect over time by using keyframes.
You can apply multiple effects to a clip, and you can apply the same effect numerous times to the same clip with different settings. Keep in mind, however, that the more effects you add, the more time it takes to render the final movie. If you decide an effect is not suitable for your project, you can easily delete it in the Applied Effects panel.
Select the effect you want to apply. To locate an effect:
To select non-consecutive clips, Cmd-click each clip. To select consecutive clips, click in the Project Assets panel, and drag a marquee around the selected clips.
Audio playback controls are available only if the selected clip contains audio.
Each audio effect includes a bypass option that lets you turn the effect on or off as specified by the keyframes that you set.
You can copy and paste one or more effects from one clip (source clip) to another (target clip), or copy all effect values (including keyframes for effects) from one clip to another.
If the effect includes keyframes, the keyframes appear at comparable positions in the target clip, starting at the beginning of the clip.
To select non-consecutive clips, Shift-click each clip. To select consecutive clips, click in the Project Assets panel, and drag a marquee around the selected clips.
You can also access the Edit > Copy And Edit > Paste commands by right-click/ctrl-click.
You can also access the Edit > Copy and Edit > Paste Attributes commands by right-click/ctrl-click.
If the target clip is shorter than the source clip, keyframes are pasted beyond the target clip’s Out point.
In the Project Assets panel, select the clips for which you received the copied effects, and deselect Pin To Clip.
If the target clip has been trimmed, move the target clip’s Out point to a time later than the keyframe’s placement.
In the Quick view timeline or the Expert view timeline, select the clip whose effect you want to remove. To select multiple clips, shift-click each clip.
Right-click/ctrl-click one of the selected clips.
Select Remove Effects.
Select one of the following options:
You can disable a video or audio effect so that you can preview the movie without the effect applied.
All clips in the Quick view timeline or the Expert view timeline automatically have the fixed effects (Motion, Opacity, Volume, and Balance) applied to them. These fixed effects appear in the clip instance in the Expert view timeline and in the Applied Effects panel. All of the standard effects that you add to a clip appear in the order in which you add them.
The Applied Effects panel does not display effects if multiple clips are selected in the Expert view timeline.
