Pasting Clip Attributes in Final Cut Pro

fcp_icon.pngIf you've worked hard on a particular clip by changing the speed, basic motion, or have applied filters to it, and want to use those same attributes on another clip, you can save yourself a lot of time by copying and pasting those attributes to other clips in a sequence.

To paste attributes of a copied clip into another clip:
  • In the Timeline, select a clip whose attributes you want to paste into another clip
  • To copy the clip, you can do one of 3 things: Choose Edit > Copy; OR right-click on the clip and choose copy; OR use the keyboard shortcut, CMD+C
  • Now select a clip or clips to paste the settings into
  • Again, one of 3 things:  Choose Edit > Paste Attributes; OR right-click on the clip and choose Paste Attributes; OR use the keyboard shortcut, OPT+V
  • Now a Paste Attributes dialog box will open up where you can select which attributes you want to apply to the selected clips

  • Click OK

Notes to remember:
  • If a clip you're pasting the attributes into is longer than the clip you copied them from, you may also want to select the Scale Attribute Times checkbox to proportionally position all keyframes that you copied to fit the longer clip.

  • When pasting attributes into a clip, all parameter settings in the motion tab, and speed parameter settings will be replaced.
  • If you plan to use these attributes again in the future, you might want to save a copy of the clip in a favorites bin, or any designated bin or project tab in your Browser.  That way you can always find the clip and copy and paste from it.
On the flip side of the coin, you can also remove attributes from a clip simply by selecting the clip, go to Edit > Remove Attributes, and selecting the checkboxes of the attributes you want to remove, or you can right-click on the clip, and select Remove Attributes; then click OK.
