Can you add an effect to an entire track?

Select all clips on the track, then choose the desired effect.

Some effects will instantly show up on all clips.  Others will apply to only the clip whose FX was clicked. 

In that case click the "replace effect chain" icon on the toolbar (7th from the left) to replace the effect for the other selected clips.  image.png

The 8th icon will ADD the effect to the other clips.  But this process can be touchy and work differently in various VP releases.  Experiment.

Be sure to Save AS at each crucial step.  Save Project File AS routinely, giving it a unique # or name, so as not to overwrite prior saves.  Using Save Project Files (no AS) will overwrite.  From the HOME tab, that choice is available by clicking the chevron to the right of the Save Project button on the toolbar.

An alternative would be to copy the track (select all, then <ctrl-C> and paste into a new Sequence - <ctrl-V>.  Export that sequence.  It's now a single clip that can replace the original track content.

Hi

Note that with the method show above, each clip on the track will have the effect added to it individually. If, however you want the whole timeline as a single unit to get the effect then simply create a sequence by clicking the + after the Sequence 1 X at the left end of the track. This clears the track and stores the contents in the Sequence bin as Sequence 1. Drop this back to the now empty track and apply the effect.

Thanks everyone!

Working backwards, suppose I use the method of just selecting all the cuts on a single track and add the effect, is there a method to REMOVE an effect which is on many different cuts?

Select the clips where the effect is to be removed.

Click the FX button on one of those clips and delete the effect.

If necessary, click the "replace chain" green button on the toolbar.  Clipboard01.jpg
