Step 5: Adding the Second Channel

If you want a second channel in your project, you can add the new clip to the Channel 2 track and then copy and paste the Corner Pin parameters from Channel 1 to this second channel. Doing so will mean you only have to go through the procedure of adding and fine-tuning the Corner Pin once. A huge advantage if you want to add 20 or more channels to your Zapper of a viewer!

Task: Add a second channel and copy the Corner Pin parameters from Channel 1 to Channel 2 by following these steps:

  1. Return to the Media view by clicking on the Project button (see Figure 15).
  2. Make sure the CTI is at the second marker, then drag and drop your Channel 2 clip from the Media view to the Channel_2 track on the Timeline (see Figure 16).
  3. Return to the Channel 1 clip on the Timeline and select it by clicking it once. Open the Properties view for the Channel 1 clip by clicking the Properties button (see Figure 17).
  4. Right-click on the Corner Pin effect text label inside the Properties view for the Channel 1 clip and select Copy from the Contextual menu (see Figure 18).
  5. Now click on the Channel 2 clip on the Channel_2 track, and the Properties view should automatically display for this clip. Right-click in a blank area anywhere inside the Properties view and select Paste from the Contextual menu (see Figure 19). This will copy the Corner Pin effect to this clip with the correct parameters to replace your on screen TV (see Figure 20).
