If I have the crop effect set up how I like one one clip on the timeline - how do I copy this effect to the other 2 or 3 clips on the timeline?
ok found this on the web:
applying same effect to other clips on timeline:
The first method is to do a right-click-COPY on the clip in the timeline containing the effects. Move to the clip in need of the same and right-click on it. Choose Paste Effects.
You can also save your own effect settings such that they will be available in your effect menu. In the Effect Stack, click the Save icon under the effect you wish to save. Enter a new name for the effect. From now on, you can apply that effect with those settings onto any clip by right clicking on the clip > Add Effect > Custom.
