Remove all FX in one go?

Just say you color corrected a whole project, on a scene by scene basis, hundreds of little clips,
and then over the course of a week or 2 you learned a whole lot more about color correcting,
so then you want to open the cut project, and remove all FX in one go to start again,
Can you do it?
selecting multiple clips doesnt seem to work, I'm going through now, right click the green cross, delete all, its taking forever.

Sounds like something the scripting part(s) of Pro could help with quite handily.

I've wanted to play with scripting while I had 10 Pro until I buy it, but I'm still heavily into DirectX/OpenFX/OpenCL right now, so it'd take me too long to write one. There might already be something available though.

I use Excalibur to do that. It can remove effects from all selected events. There are other scripts available that will do the same thing. Another pay script that will do that function is Ultimate S. With enough searching, you may find a free one as well.

Select one clip that has no CC applied and copy. Select the rest and right click "paste event properties". They will all be reset.

Funny, I know I'd tried that before and it hadn't worked. Seemed to only add FX's, not remove them.
But that appears to be the case only in VMS; tried it in Pro, and it does remove as well as add FX's.

You Sir, are a legend!
I use "Paste event attributes" all the time, and never thought to use it for this.
I love this place.
cheers people.

That does NOT work in Vegas Pro 8, That does NOT work in Vegas Pro 9. But it DID work in Vegas Pro 10. Apparently "Paste Event Attributes" in 10 makes them match instead of only "adding" new attributes.

I seem to recall that this technique will also cause clips to match playback rate, which could undo any slow motion done to clips. Or if the playback rate of the copied clip is slowed down, then the clips "pasted to" will also slow down.

For this reason I prefer using Ultimate S (or Excalibur) for removing FX. It only removes FX, and affects nothing else.
