What am I missig? I know this has to be possible, probably the first thing they developed.
I drag a long avi clip onto a track, then i slice it up so that things on the track below it can show through when needed... but now I want to apply an effect to everything on the track I sliced up in one fell swoop.
I easily can select everything on th etrack of course, but when I do anything related to pasting is greyed out everywhere.
Add effect to one of the clips, right mouse click and copy.
Now select all the other clips, right mouse click and paste attributes. Done.
And for the benefit of future readers... I was trying to copy from the "effects control" box (totally allowed) and then paste onto a selected group of clips on the timeline window (appearantly not allowed).
