There are a few things worth to know about the behavior when copying and pasting FX / clip containers including FX.

COPY AND PASTE THE FX STRUCTURE

If there are one or several effects added to a layer and another layer should get this effect structure, right-click on the layer in the Device Tree and choose “Copy FX Structure”. Now right-click on the layer to which you want to paste this FX structure and choose “Paste FX Structure”.

Example:
Layer 1 contains 3 effects, in the order “Crop Edges INV”, “Cropper HV RGBA” and “Frame RGBA”.
Layer 2 contains 2 effects, in the order “Frame RGBA” and “Softborder”, see images below.

Images: Left) Layer 1 contains 3 effects, Right) Layer 2 contains 2 effects.

To copy the effect structure of Layer 1 to Layer 2, right-click on Layer 1 and choose “Copy FX Structure”. After this right-click on Layer 2 and choose “Paste FX Structure”, see images below.

The FX structure of Layer 2 includes the FX that were on Layer 2 before the Copy+Paste command was executed and the newly pasted FX coming from Layer 1, see image below.

COPY AND PASTE CLIP CONTAINERS

When copying a clip container from one layer (containing several FX) to another layer (containing FX as well, but different ones or in a different order) it depends on the settings within the clip container how the FX structure in the target layer will look like.

Example A:
Layer 1 contains 3 effects, in the order “Crop Edges INV”, “Cropper HV RGBA” and “Frame RGBA”.
Layer 2 contains 2 effects, in the order “Frame RGBA” and “Softborder”, see images below.

The clip that should be copied from Layer 1 to Layer 2 has keys set for the first FX (Crop Edges INV). The following 2 FX are not used in this clip container, see image below.

Image: The clip container on Layer 2 uses only the first FX, effect 2 and 3 have no keys set.

When this clip container now is pasted on Layer 2, only the FX “Crop Edges INV” will be pasted as well. The other two FX won’t be pasted because they were not used in the clip container, see image below.

Image: After pasting the clip container to Layer 2, only the effect “Crop Edges INV” is added.

Example B:
The same FX structure of Layer 1 and Layer 2 is used, but now the clip container that is going to be pasted on Layer 2 has keys set for all three FX, see image below.

_img294

Image: The clip container on Layer 1 uses all three FX that are added to the layer.

When this clip container now is pasted on Layer 2, all FX from Layer 1 are added to the FX tree of Layer 2, see image below.
