I have a clip in the Timeline which has colour correction exactly right. I'd like to copy this colour correction to a second clip. My problem is that the second clip has extensive video animation on it, and if I just "Paste Effects" from the first clip, it pastes the colour correction all right, but it also pastes the animation from the first clip, too.

 

Is there a way to just paste the colour correction and not the animation?

How about saving your clip color correction as a 'preset', then selecting the other clips and applying the preset. --ken

    Unfortunately not at this stage.

     

    Just thinging out loud here.... The only workaround I can think of is to copy the clip that has your colour correction/animation , go to  the clip that you'd like to paste it too and turn it to a compound clip. Paste the effect, then in your inspector, rest the animation.

     

    So potentially what you should have is a clip that still retains it original animation, but by placing it in a compound, your adding the color correction on the compound which should retain the original animation

     

    Does that make sense..? Worth a try..

    Oh to add to that, I generally use compounds when I need to colour correct 2-3 clips that are next to each other and know that the correction or contrast tweak will be exactly the same.
