    adding edits to a filler

    Hi!

    I'm working on a project and I want to make a color correction to the clips in it. The thing is that I want to make this correction using a new track different to the one where the clips are. The problem I have is that I don't want to make edits in the new track to reference all the points that the scene change in my video (I have more than 500 cuts so make edits one by one is some kind of boring). I think there's an option that allows you to copy all the edit points that you have in a track to a new empty one. Is this correct? And if so, what do I have to do?

    Another question I have is: there is a way to modify the oppacity of a clip without having to apply a key effect?

    Thanks in advice

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    I would use the superimpose effect to just change opacity, I don't belive that you can do it without using an effect.

    Not sure about Q1 maybe you can achieve what you want to do in a different way. What was it again?

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    Hi!

    Simplifying, I just want to copy the edits points that I have in track 1 to the new I create (track 2) to avoid doing the edits one by one. Then, apply color correction effects to track 2 so I don't manipulate directly the clips in track 1.

    I hope now my question gets a little clear.

    Thanks

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    I don't believe there is a way to copy the edit points on to a "blank" video track but i am interested to know what it is you want to achieve by not applying CC to the clip itself. I don't see the advantage of applying it to a new track and leaving the track "unadjusted". If it is to preserve the original cut and images then wouldn't a copy of the "unadjusted" sequence suffice?

    If you were intent on doing so I would suggest that you add CC to your track 2, then add edits where it was necessary ie when you needed to change/adjust/delete the CC fx clip by clip.

    I'm not sure I follow, but are you looking to do a single color correction to your entire video track?  If so, why not just create your additional track, then drag your color correction effect from the Effects Window to the empty track (which should be above the track with your clips).  Open your CC tool and correct away.

    Or so I think.

    one way is to make a copy of the track on the next layer, then as you add effects, delete the clip on the higher track which should leave you with a hole of filler to apply the effect to.

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    it's not automated, but if you map "fast forward" (wth it set up to stop at the head of each edit) and "add edit" to your keyboard, it's just a matter of pounding out 2 alternating keystrokes 500 times. tedious but conceivably doable in 5 minutes or so. just one possible workaround....

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    The reason why I need to copy the edit points in a new track is because in track 1 I have and old edition of a film which clips are offline. And in track 2 I will put the copy of the edition in high resolution, a copy that I would capture from a DVCam (so, a copy without the edit points). The reason of copying the edit points is to don't have to repeat all the edits in track 2. And the color correction will be aplyyed to that video in track 2.

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    Make a copy or subclip of your original video track unlink the media decompose and batch capture at hi resoulution, edit it back into the sequence. Or am I missing something?

    Re: adding edits to a filler

    There's a really neat trick to doing this using the pan and scan effect.  From memory :

    Your offline sequence with cuts is on V1
    Digitise your tape and put it in sync onto V2
    Apply Pan and Scan effect to it.
    Highlight both V1 and V2
    There's then an option in the Effects Editor for Pan and Scan to "subdivide effect". Click that
    Voila - your V2 track will have edit points at every edit point on V1
    You can then remove the Pan and Scan effect.
     

    regards

    Brian

    IT WORKS!!!!!!

    Thank you so much!

    One thing, the option in the pan and scan editor is subdivide, just in case someone needed this someday
