# VSE: Change blend mode for multiple strips (via Python)

Blender VSE imports default to CROSS as blend mode (Set the default Blend Type)
Multiple strips cannot be edited simultaneously via the Strip Properties' "Edit Strip".

I was not able to find information on whether the VSE selection can be used from Python (e.g. a "selected" property or method), only active_strip:

https://docs.blender.org/api/blender_python_api_current/bpy.types.SequenceEditor.html#bpy.types.SequenceEditor

If the strips in question share e.g. a prefix, they can be modified like so via the Python console:

>>> for strip in D.scenes["Scene"].sequence_editor.sequences_all:
...     if strip.name.startswith("myimage"):
...         strip.blend_type="ALPHA_OVER"


Is there another way, or can the selected strips be accessed via the Python API?
