Yesterday, we talked about working within the Filters Tab in Final Cut Pro.  Today we will discuss the fact that once you have applied filters to a clip, you can copy and paste that clips' attributes to another clip, or to multiple clips.  Using this simple concept allows you to build complex sequences that require a minimal amount of effort. 

To Copy & Paste Filter Attributes:
  • Right-click on a clip within the Timeline that contains a filter and choose Copy from the contextual menu.  This copies all of the filters that have been applied to that particular clip.

  • Highlight a clip or a group of clips within the Timeline.  Right-click on them and choose Paste Attributes from the contextual menu.  A Paste Attributes box will appear.
  • Check the Filters check box and press OK.

You can also Remove Attributes by right-clicking in a clip with a filter you want to remove and choose Remove Attributes.  You will then see a Remove Attributes dialog box.
