I have animated a strip in the VSE and would like to apply the same animation to other strips later. How can I do that without manually recreating the keyframes on the other strips?
In More Detail
I guess I’m looking for a way to create something like an animation template that I can apply to multiple strips at different points in time. Ideally, making changes to the animation template will also update the animations where the template was used.
The accepted answer on this question suggests that Actions could be used to create such animation templates. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get new keyframes on VSE strip properties into custom Actions but only into the default “SceneAction”.
Here’s a sample
.blend file that shows what I’m after:
There are three similar, scaled (color) strips on top of a background strip. I have animated the yellow strip (via
Transform.Yellow). I would like to reuse the same animation on the other two color strips, just later in the video.
(Note: in reality I don’t work with color strips but they should be good enough to demonstrate the issue.)
