Can I delete multiple effects at once?

If there are multiple effects at the same moment in a clip, you can hover over the effect on the timeline and delete all effects.

Will my effects from Classic transfer to New Hudl?

Effects do NOT transfer from Classic to New Hudl. It is important to make sure your entire team is using New Hudl.

Who can see these effects?

Anyone with access to that playlist will be able to view the effects you are creating. If you would like to make your effects private, create a separate playlist and unshare it with your team.
