Summary0000522: Attaching effects suggestions
DescriptionIs there an attach effect key-bind? Would it be useful?

my suggestion would be: Ctrl-T (already used, clear I/O points)
Action: attaches selected effect in Resources (to selection, I/O points or single edit, even multiple selected edits), or if no effect selected in Resources, the keybind opens Attach dialogue window
This would be interesting - just one click in Effects, move down to timeline and Ctrl-T attaches, make another selection and Ctrl-T again attaches elsewhere.

Another suggestion, the Effect dialogue (normally on right-click Attach Effect) could have a box somewhere with the last ten effects used, or favorites, to make attaching most needed per project much faster.
TagsNo tags attached.

Agreed that it's easy to drag effects, but it's also mouse work and are there people who prefer the keyboard most of the time?
Perhaps a keybind would only activate the Attach dialogue?
If there are grouped effects in the future (right click> add to Group > Group1 ?) maybe a popup window with the list of effect groups, then hit a number to attach the group or favorite, that could make life easy.

I think I like to see
"Most recently used in a box in the "Attach effect" menu " (and/or may be specific folder for this in pane/window where other bins and effects are located?)

Also, it will be cool (or I think so right now, without experience!) to have some kind of 'ghost' nested clip feature - when you can move group of effects around and drop them on selected region and tweak with mouse - without original clip content dragged around .. So, multiple-effects will be easier to apply. And may be for saving as (shareable? versioned?) xml files too ?

I do not think a key-bind for an effect would be much used because it is just too easy to drag and drop -- there are not many key combinations left to use. Someday it might be possible to define your own key-bindings and that may change my opinion.

Most recently used in a box in the "Attach effect" menu would be very useful. There is a BT out there with the suggestion (by Sam) of having a "group of effects" and that gets discussed now and again since many times a user would like to always drag the same set of effects on a video. Maybe these 2 ideas can be combined.

What do others think?
