Is there a way to paste / replace only one attribute on the same effect accross multiple clips?

I would like to apply just one attribute of one effect that is applied on multiple clips accross timeline. I cannot find any way to overwrite just this one particular attribute in one particular effect - all I can do is just copy/paste the whole effect on top of the previous one. In the end I found myself changing the attribute manually clip by clip - thankfully I only got a dozen of them, but what if it's much more?

Very easy, but you're looking in the wrong place. And yes, there are so many places to look!

 

Select a clip in the timeline panel ... right-click, "Copy".

 

Then select one or more clips, right-click, "Paste Attributes". A dialog pops up, and you select which attributes (effects) you want to paste onto the selected clips.

 

That example you provided would be by leaving the "Motion" item selected, as you see, it's in the Motion group.

Hi Neil, sorry - no, that wouldn't work, that's exactly why I am asking this question. As I mentioned - I need to overwrite only one attribute inside one effect, not copy paste the whole item. Yes - the Motion group can be overwritten because it is a built in effect. But a manually added effect cannot be overwritten - it can only be added and will stack up on top of all the existing effects. And again - this method will not copy/paste separate attribute items - only the whole effect group...

Anwer is no.

You cannot just select one parameter within an effect, all parameters will come across.

That's what I thought... sad news and very strange not to have this option in such a robust software...
