    Posted by Sandeep Sajeev on April 15, 2014 at 5:55 am

    I am working on a spot in FCPX and am previewing looks using Adjustment Layers stacked on top of each other (see embedded image)

    Is there a way to save these stacks and just call them up as necessary, as opposed to Opt Dragging everytime?

    You can compound them. Then take it from event when needed. But you’ll have to Break Apart them every time.
    Hope that helps.

    Hi Eugeny,

    thanks for responding. Unfortunately Compounding doesn’t work with Adjustment Layers.

    I guess Motion Filters are the only way, at least in 10.9. Is it any different in 10.1?

    I know that compounding doesn’t work with Adjustment Layers. As I said,

    [Eugeny Korkhin] “you’ll have to Break Apart them every time”

    I mean, you compound the stack and thus have it in the Event. Then you don’t need to Alt Drag them in the timeline, but use this compound clip from the Event. After you place it into the timeline, you Break it apart and then it works as it does now.
    May be, I misunderstood something))

    I don’t know, haven’t updated yet.
