Copy and paste effects between clips just as you might copy and paste files between folders, or text between paragraphs.

What you learned: Quickly copy effects between clips

Copying and pasting effects between clips is a quick way to apply visual effects to multiple clips without creating a preset.

Copy individual effects

  • Select an effect heading in the Effect Controls panel and choose Edit > Copy, or right-click on the effect heading and choose Copy.

Paste a copied effect onto one or more clips

  • Select one or more clips in a sequence and choose Edit > Paste, or right-click and choose Paste.

Copy effects from one clip to another clip

  • To copy all effects applied to a clip, copy the whole clip. Select the clip and choose Edit > Copy, or right-click on the clip and choose Copy.

Selectively paste effects

  1. Select one or more clips in a sequence and choose Edit > Paste Attributes, or right-click on a selected clip and choose Paste Attributes.
  2. Choose options in the Paste Attributes dialog box to selectively paste effects that were applied to the original copied clip.

Tip: Always check clips from beginning to end after applying effects to be sure you get the result you want throughout the clip.
