Thread: Premiere Pro - Apply video effect to entire track or multiple clips?

  1. #1

    Question Premiere Pro - Apply video effect to entire track or multiple clips?

    Is there a way to apply a video effect to all the clips on a video track? I tried selecting multiple clips but the Effects window says "no clip selected".

    I'm trying to avoid applying the same effect to many different clips on the same video track.

    Two options spring to mind.

    There's the paste attributes method. Apply the effects that you want to the first clip. When you're happy with it, right-click on the clip on the timeline and click 'copy'. Right-click on the next clip in the timeline and click 'paste attributes'. This method is OK if you only have a handful of clips to alter.

    The other way is to move all of the clips that you want to alter to a separate sequence. Then re-import that sequence into the master timeline (just drag it from the project window to the master timeline) and apply your effects to it (as if it were a single clip).

    probabky the second option there isbest. However depending on the specific effect you want, tghere is one more way. You can apply a transparent video clip across the timeline and put your effect on that.
