Apply affect to source footage
on Oct 16, 2018 at 12:01:45 pm

First my English is not good, sorry about that.

I have a after effects project that have lots of video clips inside of it and it is not organized well. All i want to do is color grade those clips at once but i couldn't find any way to apply lumetri effect to whole footage. In premiere i can just paste effect to footage's source and tada all clips are graded.

is there any way to do that in after effects? i searched whole internet but couldnt find anything.

Add an adjustment layer above all the footage layers and apply the Lumetri effect to it.

Thanks for response Kalleheikki.

But footages are pre composed more than once and there are lots of motion graphic elements inside of those compositions. I want to grade them without affecting those motion graphics. Also there are different shots, i did different grade for each of them.

what i am trying to archive is applying an effect direcly to source file but apperanly there is no much a thing in ae.

It's weird that nobody asked this before.

Select the footage item in the Project Panel, right-click, and choose "Replace with precomp (used x time(s))." This will create one new precomp for your footage, and replace every instance of the footage with that precomp throughout the project. You can then apply your effects to the footage inside that new precomp and it will ripple throughout the project, just like a Master Clip Effect in Premiere.
