    Shortcut for applying color correction/grading to multiple clips at once

    Lately I've found myself drag and drop my color correction/grading to one clip at a time. It's getting tedious. Is there a way to drag and drop the CC/grading to more than jut one clip at a time? Perhaps from In/Out? Any suggestion is much appreciated.

    You can do the same as with other Avid effects. Drag the effect icon into a bin, With the segment mode lasso or select all the clips you want to add the CC effect to and double click on the CC effect you dragged to the bin.

    Renaming the effect would make it easy to have various versions of your CC correction effect available for any new media you add to the timeline.

    What Andrew says, or apply the effect to the video track above, separated by insert edits where you want changes.

    Just remember that this method will replace any effect that is already applied to the selected clips.

    Normally you can alt-drag an effect on top of another to create a nest but with the "segment mode double click method" holding alt while double clicking will make one big nest with all the selected clips inside and the new effect on top.

    I whish there was a way to build individual nests this way but I don't think there is(?)

    Awesome! That works! Okay, so to remove all these CC, do I just lasso all of these clips and click remove effects?

    Yes, that's exactly what you do.

    Not quite sure what you mean by that, but it is possible to apply one effect separately to a group of clips by segment selecting the clips and CTRL (CMD on Mac) double clicking the effect icon. That effect will then be individually applied to each segment selected, instead of one effect globally across the entire range of selected segments, the way ALT (OPT on Mac) double clicking will do.

    Re: Shortcut for applying color correction/grading to multiple clips at once

    I'm working on MC 6 MAC

     

    I've been trying to do this but it's not working - the strange thing is that it has worked on other projects in the past but currently it hasn't for me - is there a selection or something in the settings that needs to be selected for it to apply?  Here's what I'm trying to do:

     

    I have a multicam sequence in which the clips have been commited.

    I have camera A and camera B footage

    I have color corrected the first clip of camera A and dragged the setting over to the bin

    Using Shift-left click with the red arrow icon, I have selected multiple clips in the sequence that I want to apply the color correct effect.

    I move my mouse over to the bin to the effect and double click on it - and - it does not apply it to the selected clips.  

    I have tried first highlighting the effect in the bin - double clicking on the name of the clip (the cursor appears as an arrow) or clicking on the effect icon (cursor appears as a hand) and each time it doe not work.

     

    We have multiple MC 6 work stations and open this on another one - and it doesn't apply on he other stationst.  However other projects opened on this other station do work and as I said on other projects (but not recently) I have been able to apply this shortcut - so I'm wondering if something needs to be selected in the Settings.

    This shortcut is a real time saver so I'd like to get this figured out - thanks for any help with this...

    Sounds like your project settings may be corrupt.  The post below explains how:

    Thanks Carl - I created a new project then opened the bin from the other project and it worked, thanks for the link to the post about corrupt projects.

    If you just need to grade a range of clips from in to out, on an empty layer above your cut, place an edit at either end of the range that you wish to correct.  With that layer selected, do your colorgrade.  It will correct the entire range of clips underneath that layer.

    I have been trying to do exactly this and it won't work. I get a error message that says "effect does not apply". This is strange because I do exactly this for adding a TC Burn but color correction it doen't want to work!

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    How, exactly, are you applying the CC effect?  Is there anything else on the track you're trying to apply the effect to?

    On my system (MC8 w/Symphony option) I can click and drag a Color Correction effect from the Image category of the Effect Palette to a filler track, and I can save that CC effect to a bin and apply it from the bin to a filler track, but I can't add correction to a filler track while in Color Correction mode.
