Quick way to change title attributes to numerous titles at once
on Feb 6, 2016 at 11:13:52 pm

Hi,

Quick Q: I have to ad to 100 subs a drop shadow. How can I copy/paste that specific attribute to switch this on and the specific values for a drop shadow to numerous subs at once?
In the paste attributes window there isn't an option for that.

Thanx.

Greetings,



Sascha.

This might be an end around, but could you open the title in Motion, turn on the drop shadow with your specific values and then save as a new title? Then you could select all the titles in your project and double click the new title in the browser to replace all the old titles with the new one. Seems like that might work.

Hi Andy,

Interesting option. Wouldn't have thought of that.
Will also give it a try.
Thanx.

As long as they are all based on the same title preset (basic, custom, whatever) you can select all the titles in the timeline index and change them all at once. So select all, turn on drop shadow, change the font, change the colour, etc, they'll all change at the same time.

Hi Jeff,

That's a good idea. I just would have to make three groups of subs, since, some are one, two or three liners.
Then it's no problem. Will give it a try.
Otherwise, it's the Drop Shadow Effect way.

Thanx!

As long as it's the same title, with the same controls, I don't think it matters what the text is so one line or more shouldn't matter.

True that.
Will try it when I get to the Studio in half hour.

Thanx.

[Jeff Kirkland] "As long as it's the same title, with the same controls, I don't think it matters what the text is so one line or more shouldn't matter."

That's exactly how to do it, yes. Select all, turn drop shadow on, done. By far the easiest and fastest. If you were looking to change FONT and/or SIZE, then it would of course matter if it had one or more lines of text (as in separate text wells) and different formatting. But even that would be possible the exact same way.

I do this sort of thing all the time. It's a little know secret to how X works. You can even select a bunch of clips and move them all or scale them all at once with the transform inspector. Even though the position or scale might be different the inspector will read "--" and you just click and drag on the "--" and it all adjusts proportionately if I remember right.

Do other NLEs do this? AE does it, but I'm not sure if others do.

Or, alternatively, you can apply Drop Shadow EFFECT from Stylize category to one title, tweak it, then copy and Paste Attributes just like any other effect.
Hope that helps

HI Eugeny,

This might be the fastest solution.

Hi to all,

I went in the end with copy pasting the "Drop Shadow" Effect on all clips, since its appearance is closer to the AVID drop shadow, and
it was important to match it to films in the exhibition, that come from MC as well.
Thanx again for all the great ideas & suggestions!
