I was able to save the corrections to one slice as an effect preset and apply the preset to all other clips with directions from Apple:
You apply a color correction preset as you would apply any other clip effect from the Effects browser.
As Noah suggests, using project templates in editing software is probably the most common, and most accessible solution to your question.
The downside is that it still requires manual input, which can grow more cumbersome as your catalogue expands. For a more hands-off approach, look into automation via scripting. DaVinci Resolve is a full NLE which ...
EDIT: You need to be clear what your goal is. If this is a summer project and just something for some friends to work on together right now, I'd suggest getting Blender (https://www.blender.org/) and learning to use it together. Make some of your establishing shots, if you can.
Or start on a script. 99% of people with good ideas for a movie never make it ...
Quicktime in Apple has a trim and drop edit function built into the player app.
You just copy your footage in the time line and drop it into the old footage in the right place. Pretty useful for a light edit.
Four free & open source video editing software that I would suggest trying out are:
I have not tested any of them thoroughly, as I generally just use a combination of Avidemux & FFmpeg for very simple video editing.
It's certainly possible to drag all of your clips to the timeline, then chop out the parts you don't want, and then drag-and-drop the remaining pieces into the order you want. I used to do that with the old-school version of FCP (prior to FCPX), and it still works. (In fact, as you do this, it closes gaps where you delete parts of clips, which is very ...
When you import clips into Final Cut Pro and make a project, they should all show up in that project. If you want to put specific clips in the timeline, then you need to select the specific part in the window that includes all your imported media. None of the imported media will go away if you do this. Once you import the media, it doesn't matter how much ...
The clips you cut in your timeline can’t be copied into the media pool because technically these aren’t individual clips yet. Just references to the original media. You can rearrange these easily in your timeline. Just drag and drop clips in your timeline. Everything will move around the clip you change position.
Calm down. Final Cut Pro X is a software for professionals and as such requires a certain investment of time until you can work with it. If you are not willing to do this you should look for a simpler tool.
Yes, of course it's possible to do what you want, but to me it sounds like you don't know the basics of how to operate the software. To get you started, ...
For anyone wondering, Adobe Media Encoder is great for trimming and cropping large amounts of video at once. Drag video files into the window, choose a preset, and hit the play button. You can create your own presets to reuse.
However .mkv is NOT SUPPORTED.
A great free online editing software is WeVideo. In WeVideo, any video that doesn't take up the whole screen (like video shot in portrait mode) can be layered on top of any other video by putting the video you want on top by putting that video on the video track above the video you want below it. The way to get your video to look that way you want it to ...
