I'm using FCP X to overlay some quick lower thirds. With my clips there, I started playing around with filters, but didn't like the results. Specifically with the color correction.

 

In FCP 7, you could easily remove filters. How do you do that in FCP X?

    Open the Inspector window (command-4) and select the clip in the storyline. You should see the filters applied to that clip in the video section. Just select a filter in the Inspector and type the delete key.

    Color correction is not a filter. It's part of the clip's info. You can switch it off in the inspector by clicking the blue LED next to Color.

    Mr. Wolsky correctly corrected me. I was fixated on your use of the word Filters. Anything in the Effects section of the inspector can be deleted by selecting it first.

    Actually, Thomas, while Tom is right (as always, thankfully) you were still right if for some reason you had clicked the "+" on the color line a couple dozen times (like trying to open it up), and found you had a "Correction 1" thru "Correction 8". You can then click on "Correction 2 thru 8" to delete them.

     

    And while clicking a blue LED will deactivate the specific selection, clicking the curved arrow over to the right (looks like you are throwing salt over your shoulder for luck) will reset it so you can start over.

    While this you can remove a filter by deleting it as mentioned is there any way of deleting filters from multiple clips, a reverse of the paste effects or paste attributes functions?

    If you have three clips with the same effect, you can select all three clips, click the effect and delete it.
