There are two ways to apply the same mask to more than one clip: an adjustment layer or copying and pasting a mask.

Adjustment layers are great for those times when you need to affect lots of clips. But, copy and paste is faster when you are only working with a few clips.

To copy a mask:

  • Select the clip with the mask you want to copy
  • Go to the Effects Control panel and select the mask.
  • Choose Edit > Copy
  • Select the clip in the timeline where you want to paste the mask.
  • Choose Edit > Paste.
