Saving FX presets

Is there some way that if I set up a chain of FX, such as Curves, Letterbox,Color corrector etc, I can save them all as a combined effect package, rather than have to apply them all separately?

Thanks in anticipation...

Hi Robin
With the desired chain open in a Video track FX window, click the Plug-In Chain icon at the upper right
A Plug-in Chooser window should open. Click Save As... button on the right, give your preset a name and click on OK

Re: Saving FX presets

Using the free Preset Manager download from Sony, you can also save preset chains and import them on other machines or share your chains with others.

Re: Saving FX presets

Talking of "sharing your chains with others" there's a few free movie look presets for Vegas here -

although there seems to be a problem with two of them BRONZE and JOURNEY the others work OK.
