You can also create custom effects in Motion, then make them the default in FCP X.
If you find yourself using the same effect over and over again, here’s a fast way to turn it into a keyboard shortcut…
- Open the Effects browser.
- Control-click the effect you want to make your default video effect and choose Make Default Video Effect.
From now on, whenever you need it, select the clip(s) to which you want to apply it and type Option + E
There’s a similar option for audio effects: Control-click and choose Make Default Audio Effect.
The keyboard shortcut for these is: Option + Cmd + E.
