Copy single filters

Firstly I think Shotcut is awesome and I would pay for it even if it wasn’t free/opensource.
I have one thing I would like to see added and that is the ability to copy and paste single filters with their parameters. Often I find after getting a filter how I would like it, I have already copied other filters over to the rest of my clips. This creates duplication of filters that I don’t want.
If I have missed some way around this I would be happy to know. Currently I delete a lot of duplicate filters.


Copy/paste a video part (with filters), delete not needed filters, copy/paste the filter…done.


Before you do this what @Earlybite discribed, uncheck those filters you don’t need from the source clip and then copy.
When pasting, it’s more comfortable to delete the filters you don’t need if there are already filters set in the desired filmclip.

You can also save the filter parameters using the “Preset + -” dropdown list for future use in other projects.


Better way! :smiley:

I vote for this suggestion. I did make this suggestion before but since someone else is repeating it then I will chime in to support it. It only seems natural that in the filters list if there is just one or more items I would like to copy to another clip that you can just select that or multi-select the ones you want and have them pasted. It is limiting and annoying to have to copy an entire list of filters only then to have to delete the ones you didn’t want just to get the one or some filters you wanted to copy.

I hope this gets implemented.

That is what I do but there can be a lot of deleting. Certainly better than entering them manually.
