Pick Whip all parameters of an Effect in one go
There are a lot of occasions where the same effect is applied to several layers.
Wouldn't it be great if all parameters of these effect instances could be linked together in one Pick Whip?
Please add a Pick Whip symbol to the Root / name of the effect that, when used, connects all the effects' settings.
Thank you for filing this request! There is an existing functionality for linking all properties of an effect in the Edit menu > Copy with Property Links. This command works for many different types of selections, from layers to individual effects, and even to individual selected properties.
As an example, I'll often modify an effect to taste, then tap "UU" in the Timeline to reveal what I've modified, select only those properties, then Edit > Copy with Property Links. Pasting to another layer at this point will paste the entire effect, but only the selected properties will be linked with expressions to the original effect.
