Hi,

I am running into the problem that the jump from one clip to another is too different even it is the same camera position, because the effects I have applied are not identical. I am talking about effects like the sun rotation, god rays and so on. When changing the amount of the effect settings we can see the amount as a graphical bar and some numbers. These numbers are very rough so it is hard to apply the same effects settings to a new clip. Is there a trick to achieve the same settings so that there is no sort of flickering when the movie jumps to the next clip? Because of this problem, I already cutted the smooth camera path in different paths and let them cross disolve in premiere, but that is not so smooth like having long and nice camera movements.

in every clip the camera has a slow adaptation, it's like an auto-exposure effect that should be cut from the rendering.

Have you tried adding a fade-in effect?
You can then cut this out again in Premiere if so desired.

Regarding exact values from one clip to another I think it would be of tremendous value if we were able to create and save our own effects-sets and if the vast majority of the available effects came with snapping sliders.

yes I know, but that was not what I wanted to point out. The problem is that it is not possible to enter exact values for the effects so that the god rays or the sun rotation are looking similar in both clips, that was the point I was talking about. When you will move the var of an effect you will see how long you will see the value 0.3 for example before it goes up to 0.4. Inbetween this value are big diffrences concerning the effects.

I am using fade in and fade outs, but that cuts a camera movement into pieces and makes the movie itself not so smooth after my opinion. And since there is no cross disolve I am preferring doing all these effects in Premiere Pro.

Right. I guess using whole-movie for effects like God-Rays and leave the clip-effects to the absolute minimum isn't much of an option either then?

No, not realy, because I wanna have this effect only in these two clips at the end of the movie. After all, that must be possible in future, after my opinion, I mean better control of the vaules.

I guess being able to copy paste an effect from one clip to another is the best solution.
