Changing effects defaults

Postby abgtc » Tue Jun 12, 2018 2:22 am

I wonder if there's a way to change the default level settings for various effects. For example: when "Image Control" is applied, the first setting, "Brightness", is set at -3. I'd love to have it be 0.

Similarly, "Crop" is set at Left 0%, Right 9%, Top 14% and Bottom 20%, and I'd rather have them all at 0. Any ideas?

I don't know that there's a way to do this. But, believe me, if there is a way, I'm sure the best and brightest in the Muvipix community will figure it out!

Meantime, you certain CAN create a custom preset -- which is essentially the effect with your custom settings applied. But I don't think that's quite what you're looking for.

I don't have Premiere Elements 15, but I'm wondering if it remembers the settings from the last time it was used?

Steve: Not quite sure what a custom preset would do. Also, Adobe says "you cannot create custom presets" (https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-elemen ... esets.html).

peru: Definitely doesn't remember settings.

From the Adobe website:

Create an effect preset
You can create presets containing one or multiple effects. After you create an effect preset, it appears under the My Presets category in the Effects panel.

Select the clip that uses the effect you want to save as a preset.
Click Applied Effects to open the Applied Effects panel.
Right-click/ctrl-click one or more effects, and choose Save Preset.
In the Save Preset dialog box, specify a name for your preset.
(Optional) Enter a description for the preset.
Select one of the following preset types to specify how Premiere Elements will handle keyframes when you apply the preset to a target clip, and then click OK:
Scale

Scales the source keyframes proportionally to the length of the target clip. This action deletes any existing keyframes on the target clip.
Anchor To In Point

Positions the preset’s first keyframe at the same distance from the target clip’s In point as it was from the original clip’s In point. For example, if the first keyframe was 1 second from the In point of the source clip when you saved the preset, this option adds the keyframe at 1 second from the In point of the target clip, and adds all other keyframes relative to that position without any scaling.
Anchor To Out Point

Positions the preset’s last keyframe at the same distance from the target clip’s Out point as it was from the original clip’s Out point. For example, if the first keyframe was 1 second from the Out point of the source clip when you saved the preset, this option adds the keyframe at 1 second from the Out point of the target clip, and adds all other keyframes relative to that position without any scaling.
