I am wondering if is any way to stack up combination of some effects in a layer or adjustment layer to reuse. But I need a flexible layer like a MasterEffctLayer which can control later and Chang as you wish. Then you could stack up this layer on top of different videos and footage and if you change your mind by some of the effects you just edit the MasterEffctLayer and all footages under this MasterEffctLayer in every composition suddenly change in same fashion.

You could save an animation preset to reuse a bunch of effects, properties, keyframes, and expressions.

Or, if you want to keep things live, you can use the Copy With Property Links feature to link items to a master layer.

Depending on the type of effect you want, an Adjustment Layer will do the job nicely.

You can link effects with expressions to a master control layer in CS5.5 too; you have to do it manually though.
