Editing Sequence-Level Soft Effects
You can copy, move, and cut soft effects just like you can with track items in the timeline. You can perform these
actions by either accessing them from Edit in the right-click menu, or by using the keyboard shortcuts. You can copy
soft effects to different tracks, and different sequences, but not different projects.


You can move a sequence-level soft effect by simply clicking and dragging the soft effect to a different track item, or
even onto a different video track.


Hiero allows you to copy a sequence-level soft effect above the original to create a stack, to a different track, or to a
different sequence. You can also copy a sequence-level soft effect to a track item open in the timeline view, therefore
pasting it as a clip-level soft effect. You can copy a soft effect by doing the following:

1. Select the soft effect you want to copy by clicking it.

2. Select Edit > Copy (or Ctrl/Cmd+C).

3. Move the playhead to where you want to paste the copy.

4. Select Edit > Paste (or Ctrl/Cmd+V).


Hiero allows you to clone a sequence-level soft effect. This copies the soft effect and links it to the original, which
means when one of these is edited, the changes are reflected in the other one. You can clone a soft effect to a
different track or even a different sequence. You cannot clone a soft effect in different projects.

To clone a soft effect:

1. Select the soft effect you want to clone by clicking on it.

2. Select Edit > Copy (or press Ctrl/Cmd+C).

3. Move the playhead on the timeline to where you want to place the new clone.

4. Select Edit > Clone (or pressAlt+K).

The new clone is placed at the current playhead position on the timeline. You can repeat steps 3 and 4 to create
multiple clones that are all linked, at different places on the timeline.

Clones are indicated by a C highlighted in red in the left of the soft effect.

NOTE: Cloning animation in soft effects is not supported.

Copying as Clone

You can also copy a sequence-level soft effect as a clone. This means, when you paste a new copy of the soft effect
above a selected track item, it is automatically linked to the original soft effect as a clone. Therefore, any changes
made to either of the cloned soft effects, are reflected in the other.

To copy a soft effect as a clone, do the following:

1. Select the soft effect you want to copy as a clone by clicking on it.

2. Select Edit > Copy as Clones (or press Ctrl/Cmd+K).

3. Click on the track item that you want to clone the soft effect to.

4. Select Edit > Paste (or press Ctrl/Cmd+V).

The soft effect is copied as a clone on your selected track item. You can repeat steps 3 and 4 to create multiple
clones that are all linked above different selected track items.

Clones are indicated by a C highlighted in red in the left of the soft effect.

NOTE: Cloning animation in soft effects is not supported.


To declone a soft effect, simply click on the clone you want to declone and select Edit > Declone (or press

NOTE: For more information about copying, moving, and cutting soft effects, see Timeline Editing Tools .


To delete a soft effect, simply right-click on it and select Edit > Delete (or pressBackspace).
