Im thinking of migrating from FCP but this is a huge thing for me.
Do you know if this feature is in the works?
I don't. Sorry.
Create the Effect. Save it as a Preset. Use it at will.
Sometimes the easiest way is to copy the clip with all of the effects to a new sequence, or farther down the timeline, and just delete the ones you do not want to copy. Then copy the clip and paste the attributes to the other clips. When finished, delete the extra clip. Although you might want to follow shooternz's advice first before you delete it.
Thanks for the work around.
I have an entire company considering moving from FCP but everyone is concerned about this.
We cut effects heavy shows and rely heavily on this very flexable FCP feature.
Do you have any idea how to contact Adobe about this missing feature?
There is a Feature Request Link that someone will post up here ...but .why are you
considering moving from FCP
if its "huge" and such a deal breaker?
NOte : Feqtaure requests can be made and are listened to..but dont expect it to happen over night. ( well documented).
Stay with what you are comfortable with I suggest.
Hello, apparently, my name is someone.
I think this sounds like a good feature request. Although doing it my way is not all that much different than selecting the effects you want to copy, it would be nice to be able to hit a shortcut key combo and have a checklist show up asking which effects you want to copy. It doesn't sound like it would be that hard for Adobe to do either.
Is there anyway to choose just the specific effects I would like to cut and paste onto another clip?
Open the clip with the effect(s) in the Effect Controls.
Select (highlight) effect(s) you want: fixed effect (Motion, Opacity, Volume) and or the one(s) you applied,
Copy or Ctrl+C
Select clip(s) on timeline.
Pasting Attributes copies and pastes everything from a clip and overwrites previous fixed effect settings.
Leave it to Ann to find the right way.
I completely missed that because the Paste Attributes menu item is disabled when you do that. But Ctrl-v certainly works.
I actually think it's rather more efficient to apply effects to Adjustment Layers than to clips directly. Makes it so much easier when you need to include more clips, or make an adjustment to an effect that you want on multiple clips.
The adjustment layer is interesting but I often use the same effect in many different locations on the timeline.
I drop the effect on a new shot then adjust the effect for that specific piece of video.
That said, Im looking forward to using the adjustment layer as FCP doesnt have one.
