I have some pictures I want to apply the fade in/out preset to. I select all the layer/picturs and when I drag the preset onto the layer, it deselects all of them except the one the pointer is hovering over.
I want that when I select all the layers then I drag the preset onto it the it apply to all the selected layers.
Is there a way to go about achieving what I;m looking for?
Yeah, I see what you mean with the presets only applying to the single layer when dragging and dropping it into the timeline.
What you can do is go into the Effects & Presets panel. Find the preset you wish to apply. Copy it, then select the layers in the timeline you want to add it to. Then paste it. This will add that preset to all of the selected layers.
