Mass Copy Settings from Virtual Copy To Original?

Hi there!

 

I would like to know if there is a way I can copy settings from ALL virtual copies and apply them to their respected master copies?

 

We've started outsourcing our editing to PHAiTO and sometimes we crop the images before they're color corrected.  When we import the edited catalog back in, we save the originals as a virual copy.  I then go and copy the crop from each virtual copy and paste it onto the imported photos...one by one.   It's a simple task but takes forever.  

 

Any suggestions or insight if this is possible or not? Thanks

Why not sync the develop settings from the original (the image before outsourcing) to the new (now virtual) copy, selecting just Crop in the Synchronize Settings?

 

Metod 1 in (ref 1) but only selecting Crop.

I'll add one more possible 'solution':

Find all the VC's and export as DNG. Now they are actual raw files (not in a  proprietary database), and can be considered 'new' masters. Keep the old ones or don't.
