'Make favorite motion' equivalent?

Is there a way of saving a transform setting? (e.g. a Repo)

The interweb search seems to indicate that you need to use Motion for this functionality?

Not really sure what that would look like but you can copy keyframed animations between clips with paste attributes.

It would look like a 'custom' folder in the effect presets. Or a dropdown list similar to the colour correction presets.

I've tried keeping a repo that I want to reuse in compound clips for copy / paste attributes - but the compound clip has to be pasted to the timeline / stepped in / copied / stepped out / deleted before I can then paste attributes - so that's not a very neat workaround.

I find it very hard to believe that there is no easy option for this other than paste attributes now this software has been around for 3.5 years.

I assume that with Motion 5 (I'm on the trial) I could do a repo and save as an effect preset.

'Make favorite motion' I use a lot in FCP7 - rename the resulting preset and reuse. So much goodness in that software that seems to be lost forever...

[Trevor Asquerthian] " (I'm on the trial)"

Where are you getting a trial from?? (O_o)

But to answer the question: yes, via Motion would be the only way I'd know how to do it. Open whichever you want and save it to a new category/theme.

Come to think of it, there's even a (as usual) very informative clip on the subject from Mark & Steve...
