I typically have 3 layers of video. The first is of a news broadcaster on the left of the screen, in the background is a static backdrop and on the right are images, maps etc whatever the broadcaster is talking about. Now, the images/maps video layer always has the same effects (basic 3D, bevel edge, size and position). At the moment I am applying these effects to every image/map. Is there any way to be more efficient, for instance I could assign these effects to a layer of video, so whichever image I put in this layer the effects will be automatically added.
Set up your first insert, then select that effected clip and right-click.
Select 'Copy', then select all of the other clips to which you want to apply
the same basic 3D, bevel edge, size and position effect, right-click
and select 'Paste Attributes'.
