Cut/Copy/Paste

Top  Previous  Next

In the Pixel Editor's sequencing grid, the lighting effects in cells can be copied, cut, and pasted using the standard Windows copy, cut and paste keys, Ctrl-C, Ctrl-X, and Ctrl-V. These functions can also be accessed from toolbar buttons above the grid or the menu that appears after right-clicking on a grid cell.

 

Most of the time, you will copy from a Pixel Editor prop and paste to another Pixel Editor prop. However, you can also copy from a Sequence Editor prop and paste to a Pixel Editor prop. Start by making the Sequence Editor channels visible in the grid using the Props button, then copy from cells on a gray row and paste into a black row. The black cells will be populated with colorwash effects, but it is a quick way to get the correct timing established for your Pixel Editor effects. See the picture below:
