Deleting certain FX in many clips and changing parameter in multiple clips
on Dec 31, 2013 at 7:37:07 pm

Hi,

I came across following - time consuming - issue: I put on a clips a Red Giant Looks FX.
After having the effect established on each clip, I figured out, the I do not want it to Mix 100%, but only 65& with the original clip,
so I went clip for clip to change the parameter to 65%.
Now, I wondered, is there a way to either select all clips at once and change to 65% or select all clips, delete the current Looks effect from all clips in one move and then Copy/Paste the new adjusted version to all again?


Thanx.

You can delete all the FX from all clips except the one you changed.
Then paste attributes from the "setup clip".
You can't keep the stack order of FX though.

[Andreas Kiel] "You can delete all the FX from all clips except the one you changed."

Happy New Year Andreas,

Have you discovered a way to remove all effects and clip attributes from multiple clips at the same time or are you talking about removing these one at a time from each clip?

I seem to remember in FCP7 that one could do that.

I find the quickest way is to Shift F to find the clip in the finder and then do a replace edit. Either way its a clunky way of working so if you do know a way to remove FX and attributes from multiple clips that could be a real time saver.

happy new year as well!

may be i've been not detailed enough.

so if you select multiple clips and go the inspector then select the fx you want to remove you can press the delete key and this fx will be deleted from all clips you have selected.
that wasn't possible in fcp.

to apply the same effect with different settings take one and make the settings you want, copy. then select the clips (maybe the same as selected before) and hit cmd-shift-v and click want fx you want to apply.

as said before you can't set where in the fx stack it will be pasted - its always on top.

hope that helps.

Hi Andreas,

Vielen Dank!
I will certainly try that.
But there is no way to change one parameter in an effect and copy that change onto the same effect in all the other clips?

And one more thing: I don't seem to able to make keyframes within the Colour Correction tool (apart from keyframing the mask). Is that true?
Would be a real bummer, if you can't do that. Having now the work around of blading the clip, then moving from one to the other correction with a crossfade, but that is kind of dodgy.


Thanx for your help.

No, unfortunately not.

There is no chance for me (and others as well) to do anything like that rather than writing a complete new color correction FX. But latter is beyond my scope.
