Hi,

 

Any way to copy a mask to another clip, but, the mask was used in conjunction with Ultra Key to remove green screen surrounding a figure.

Copy works, but paste is grayed out. I want to avoid re-drawing the clipping mask on each & every clip.

Surely there's an easy way to do this? I just need that masked 'shape' which is cropped closely to the figure speaking.  ...I've read you need to select the effect that accompanied the mask in order to do this; however, Ultra Key seems to be an exception to this rule.

 

Thank you.

I got it now. So, my clipping mask was applied to the Opacity FX. - Even though I have the Ultra Key applied as well. The Ultra Key still left artifacts which is why I needed the additional mask.
And, I did not initally realize that you copy and paste  the FX in the Effect Controls. I thought you do to the clip on the timeline directly (which also works in some cases, but not for the clipping mask).

Thanks.
