No and I don't really see why it should in your scenario. Sounds a bit crooked - if you trim an adjustment layer to the length of just the layer immediately beneath it, why not simply copy&paste the effects sans the layer? Unless there's something you haven't otld us, the reuslt would be very much the same...
For one adjustement layer is fine to copy and paste the effects but for several layers not so fine, unless their is a way to copy and paste several effects and blending modes from several adjustment layers at the same time. Thanks
I must not be following you. If you create an adjustment layer, trim it, copy the layer, then go to a new composition and paste the adjustment layer, all of the keyframes and effects, and everything else are placed in the new composition in the same place in the timeline with the same out point. Do you want to do something different than this?
BTW, you can copy and paste multiple layers. As far as I know this has always worked.
I don't follow. Adjustment layers have no blending modes, so if you use multiple of them in effect it doesn't matter. You could just as well apply all effects to the same layer and re-order them in the effects control window. Again, your workflow sounds crooked and I get the impression you have been following a bad tutorial and are using adjustment layers for no good reasonor confusing them with normal solids. Simply applying the effects directly and saving them as animation presets would spare you all the trouble...
I am not able to get the same input and output of the selected layer. Is there a way to paste the layers with the same input and same output of the selected layer?

Adjustment layers have no blending modes...

When I paste the new adjustment layer, its duration takes up the whole timeline.
I'm finding that trim is waist time.
However, I noticed that the way you select them does matter. When I select them from top to bottom (and then copy), they are pasted in proper order, whereas when I select them from bottom to top, they are pasted in reversed one...
Please can someone tell me if it is possible to "Copy layers" form an other composition and "Paste those layers" to "the selected layer" and "match the IN and OUT of the selected layer in the timeline? I don't want to keep the duration of the copied layer I want the COPIED LAYER to change their IN an OUT and MATCH the IN and OUT of the selected layer when I paste them.
1. It's impossible to paste layers to a layer. It's possible to paste them to a composition.
2. It's impossible to change layers' properties such as 'in' and 'out' points etc. on the fly without scripting.
3. It's easy to adjust 'in' and 'out' points of pasted layers within several clicks:
- paste selected layers to a composition;
- select targeted layer and press 'i';
- select just pasted layers and press '[';
- select targeted layer and press 'o';
- select pasted layers and press 'Alt/Opt+]'
Thanks I already know how to trim a layer... Is there a Shortcut that trim automaticaly when I paste the layer to the targeted layer?
That help me a lot specialy when the copied layers are shoter than the targeted layer.
