  • Copy and paste filters

    I'm new to Edius 3.6 and having a problem copying and pasting filters reliably from one clip to another.

    The method I use is to click on the clip (making sure to click on the upper half and not the mixer) and copy it. Then I go to Replace Parts and paste it. Works fine sometimes, other times "Filters" is grayed out and won't allow me to paste it.

    Is this a known bug or is there some strange limitation that won't allow you to copy or paste filters in certain situations?

    For instance, it seems to (usually) work fine when copying a single filter but not with two or more applied to the same clip. But then sometimes it will allow me to paste 2 filters and then other times it won't allow me to paste a single one. Can't figure out it's logic.

    Also, Edius 3.6 doesn't seem to retain a copied filter in it's clipboard. IOW, if I am successful in copying and pasting a filter and then attempt to paste that same filter a minute or two later I am forced to copy it again first.

    This is all a real PITA as this is a basic function which I use a lot. It's predecessor Storm Edit was even much better in this regard than Edius seems to be. Perhaps an upgrade would help but I do not wish to do so at this time because the jury is still out on this software in my mind.

    Any advice or suggestions would be most helpful.

    My memory's fading fast on this Friday, but I'm pretty sure you could do this in v3.6x...
    Copy the clip, then right-click the target clip and Replace Part | Filter
