So, I have this clip here of the downtown and I want to add that cartoon, because I'm just into that cartoon look. So, I'm going to go into my Effects, and do the dropdown menu and look for it, but it's already there. So, I'm going to choose that and get a little bit of real estate. So, let's drag this down. And here it is. I want to drag it onto my footage. I can also go down onto the actual clip, but I'll just go here. And that looks really cool, like, I really wish I could draw like that. Let's just play that for a second. Pretty fun! Now, if I click on the clip and go into the Edit Effects and click my down arrow, I can see that I have this other toggle box, and if I go down, there are all these different types of presets that were already made for me.
So, we're on Animation now, but what is Hallucination? Well, yeah, I can kind of see that's a hallucination right there. Pencil Test. Okay, that's kind of cool too. Really Bad Dream, now that's fun. Oh, that looks crazy. I'm going to just scroll over that. Yeah, I don't think I've had some dreams like that. I want to go back to Animation because I just kind of like that one, but I want to do some changes on it. So, I'm going to toggle down my lines. I'm going to make my lines have a little more density.
So, I'm going to just drag this over, let go, and I've got little more density. Maybe the Width, I'd like them to be a little bigger. See them getting bigger right there? And I'm going to leave the rest alone. And now I'm going to go into Paint. So, maybe I want smoothness to be a little better, so I'll add that. That's a little nicer. So, that's great. So, I'm pretty happy with that, but what if the next scene I decide I want the cartoon look on there too? So, I would have to actually go back into my Effects and drag it on here, and you know what? It's going to be a different effect than the first one, because I'd changed it.
So, what can I do? I'm going to go back into my first one. Notice the presets say None now because I took the animation, I did some changes, so it no longer was its own preset like it came with the box. But if I right-click here, I can choose Save Preset. And I'm going to change this to Dave's Cartoon Look and leave this to default and press OK. Now, when I go to my next clip and select it and go to Edit > Effect, I can do the dropdown menu, actually right here where it says Video Effect, and look for My Presets. And guess what? There's Dave's Cartoon Look.
Now, I just need to click and drag it on here or onto the footage and now this matches the first clip. All the things I did in the first clip are exactly the same, the lines and everything. So, this is going to come in really handy as you start to add a lot of effects or color correct and you want the color to be standard throughout the movie. You want to start creating your own presets and saving them, and the good news is you can always go back to them later and add them to other projects.
Now, let's check out one more way that I can do that. So, I'm going to look for some other footage, this little clip right here and add it there. So, this has nothing on it. I want to add some stuff on here, so I'm going to right-click and choose Copy, and then I'm going to click on this clip and choose Paste Attributes, and let's see what happens. Well, there it is. Now if I select that clip, go into my Edit window, choose Edit Effect, there's my Cartoon Plus right there.
It has all the presets because it says None. It doesn't say Dave's Cartoon, but it is that. So, this is yet another way to add the same effect to multiple clips within the Timeline.
