We have a 20 minute video that needs a large number of still photos added to the sequence. I've chosen a simple effect to bring the pict in and keyframed a scale and rotation move followed by a chosen effect to exit the pict.
I want to apply this total effect to each and every photo I've placed on the timeline sequence. How to do this escapes me. I'm working in FCP not motion, mind you. (I'm open to doing this in motion if it is a faster workflow)
FYI, I actually plan on making 4 or more effects to apply and mix them up so it is not so predictable.
Select the first photo to which the effect has already been applied and hit command-c. Then highlight the rest of your stills and hit option-v (paste attributes) and select the motion and other parameters that you want to apply. This assumes that all of your stills are the same size when you prepared them.
