Now of course you can put filters on a clip one clip at a time, but that's not necessarily very efficient. If you want to put a filter on several clips all at once, there's a couple of different ways to attack it. I could go ahead and select a variety of clips, in this case I'll select the first group and leave the last one empty. And jump over to my Effects tab, switch over to My Video Effects, and I want to drop on the name of the clip. And I'm not sure where that is. I'm going to type in the word clip and I see there is an option for clip name. And if I drag this or even just double click it it now has applied this filter to all of these elements.
So that if I handed this off to a producer, they'd be able to identify where the shot came from very easily. Let me go ahead and undo that because I'm going to show you another way you can select multiple clips, and they don't necessarily have to be connected artiguous. I'm going to hit Undo and go back and deselect everything by just clicking on the grey area, and now if I hold down the Shift key, I can select the specific clips that I want to apply a filter to, so this might be good if I'm color correcting and cutting back and forth between two shots and maybe I want to brighten one to match the other. For now I think I'm going to use another element that's in the video drop down folder.
And that would be not Clip Name, but that would be Time Code. I can either hit the X key and type in the word time, or jump down to Video Effects, the Video folder, and there you see both Clip Name, as well as Time Code. I can either again, drag it, much easier to just double click. You'll notice I have these little red bars, that's one indication I've put a filter on these clips. you may not see red if you have a fast video card, it may be a real time effect for you, but in my case, I'm working without a video card. But I do want to point out that if I zoom into this area here, let me drop it down a little bit.
So you can see, you'll notice that this is purple and that's gray. That's another visual indicator that you've put a filter or modified a clip in a certain way, and that way you can look at your timeline and say yes that is a modified element. So putting a filter on multiple clips is as easy as selecting the clips you want and then simply double clicking on the filter.
