Apply the same Clone Fix in every frame
Is there a way to apply the same Fix to every frame in a segment?
I have a piece of dust sticking into the frame and I'd like to cover it up using a Clone Fix. Because it's a static shot, I can literally apply the exact same fix (Local Clone, X-Offset 150pixels) in every frame and it would be great if I didn't have to do this manually in each and every frame.
There are different ways to apply DVOs to multiple shots:
- On the right side of the interface, click on the Mems button, it'll open a panel on the left side with new options
- With the Mems button open, You'll see two buttons, Shot and Notes. Here, you can choose several ways to see the shots on your timeline; if you select Event, it'll show the cuts (events) on your timeline. Here, you can click on an event, and, on the top-right part of the interface, you can see everything that has been done to a shot, including grades and FX layers. The yellow square is the selected event and the blue square is the current timeline event.
- If you select a shot that has a Tool applied, select the effect using your mouse on the top-right menu and click on Rec; this will recall the effect.
- You can select multiple shots on the timeline using the mouse and then click on Rec to recall multiple shots
Another method is to click on the Notes button, where you can save notes and select them to apply to multiple clicks using the same method.
To save a note, click on the button with the down arrow on the right of the camera icon.
Select Pan and Scan effect.
Select Shapes then draw a mask around the dust.
Then go back to the Pan and Scan tool to adjust the X - offset 150 pixels.
It will hold on to every frame in a segment.
You might need to use REC to save these settings if it reappears in another segment
