How about saving an audio clip with the settings you want to save in a separate sequence and just copy that effect when needed?
Not as convenient, but it should work.
I mention this now and then, but perhaps it is time to do so. To add to what Peru Bob said....
I keep a project with video and audio that has all of my favorite effects on them. I renamed the clips to tell me what effect they carry. Or, in the case of transitions, I use the same clip with the transition description as part of the name. The project also has my logo, some standard titles, and a variety of commonly use audio and video clips.
I just import that project into just about every new project I create.
I used to just copy and paste between the sequence with the effects on it (named Saved Effects0 and the sequence for my new project. It was a hassle switching back and forth, but then Ann Bens pointed out that I could just have the Save Effects sequence sit right on top of the main sequence. I have the room. I am using two 1920X1080 monitors.
Unfortunately, neither of those tips help much in this case, where the question was how to copy/paste Mixer (track level) effects from one sequence to another.
Perhaps my explanation was unclear.
For effects you just copy and paste the attributes. For the mixer, you erase everthing on the sequence and start from there. Or make a duplicate. The mixer effects come over to the duplicate.
Now, can you apply it existing sequences? Well, no. New sequences made from the old one? Sure! You bet.
Thanks a lot for all your ideas and thoughts...
Of course, I use the workaround of duplicating the sequence and paste in the clips I need, but come on... Premiere is sold as a Professional tool... but this issue is not that professional at all.
I was editing interviews with about 20 different sequences. So every time I feel like changing a little bit in the audio settings (with al least 3 plugins used), I either do this changes 20 times, or I have to duplicate (again) 20 sequences and pasting everything, copying the names of the sequences, deleting the old ones... Thats not a way to get your job done in short time...
Hope there will be an update for this issue soon!
Yes, this should be in Pr, and should have been there all along, as well as custom presets for all video effects and transitions.
I hope you made the feature request. The more people who make them on specfic features, the higher on the list at Adobe.
