Tip #479: Copy and Paste Masks in Premiere
Masks are easy to copy, provided you select the right thing.
This article first appeared in MotionArray.com. This is an excerpt.
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.
