saving effects with settings
on May 14, 2010 at 2:03:02 pm

I understand how to move an effect into the "favorites" bin, but the keyframes and settings don't seem to be following along... for example I build a glow in sapphire effects that has the settings I want, the timing of the keyframes is all good, and I will want to use this same effect over and over again. I drag the effect from the filter tab of the clip it is currently applied to, and sure enough, glow shows up in the favorites bin, but the keyframes & settings have not gone along! So if I apply it to another clip, I still have to recreate it, or at best copy and paste keyframes.
Is there a way to make a favorite that will include all the parameters?

Make a sequence and call it Favorites. Put a slug in it. Apply the effect to it. Keep it in your project. Move it from project to project.

All the best,
