Nesting Effects In a Bin

I know how to nest effects in the timeline but if you have 2-3 effects that you have on one clip and you want to copy the effects into the bin to save for later, so that you can put them on another clip...is there any way to nest the effects to create one effect icon to put in the bin?

Also, is there any way to drag an effect from a bin on to multiple clips in the timeline and not just drag the icon one at a time?

[Sarah Furie] "is there any way to nest the effects to create one effect icon to put in the bin?"

Nope. You have to save the effects, and apply them one at a time, holding the OPTION key as you do it.

[Sarah Furie] "Also, is there any way to drag an effect from a bin on to multiple clips in the timeline and not just drag the icon one at a time?"

Yes. Highlight the clips in SELECT mode...or lasso them by dragging from upper left to lower right. Then double click on the effect you want to add. NOTE: This applies the first effect to each clip individually...any additional effects added this way appears to nest all of them, and then apply the effect.

There is a trick you can use to save a nest of effects to a bin.

1. Put all of the effects for your clip on a blank track above that clip. Nest them in the order you want them.
2. When your effect nest has been built, apply a Submaster effect. This "collapses" all the effects inside the Submaster.
3. Open the effect editor and Alt+Drag the Submaster effect to your bin. It will save it as Submaster (With Src)
4. You can now load "Submaster (With Src)" into your source monitor. When you want to apply that nest of effect to another clip just edit it onto a blank track above it and it will apply your nest of clips to that track, which will in essence effect the clip below it.
