Testing out Pre-release 5 and liking it a lot better than previous versions so far. A couple of small things I’ve encountered so far:
I may not have something enabled correctly but when I split a clip (Control V) the clips need to be ungrouped to change a single one. Is there a way to have it default to an ungrouped state? Why would I want to treat them as a group if I split them. Also, with a clip highlighted in the timeline is there a direct way to move it through keyboard commands (numeric keypad)? Normally I want to be exact and slide the clip +5 or -4 or whatever, direct entry is the fastest way to do that.
Click on the Options menu and disable LINK SELECTION.
This means that if you select a segment which is part of a group, it will not select the rest of the segments in the group.
This appleis even when you split the clip.
This is the default behaviour with LINK SELECTION on by default because if you’re bringing in Sources with Video and Audio, you don’t want them to go out of sync unless you want it to.
To slide a clip up and down the sequence incrementally, you can hold down the D shortcut and press the left and right arrow buttons to shift the clip.
Apparently there is a numerical slide option as well as the incremental arrow option I mentioned earlier.
Switch the cursor into Slide mode. (press D)
hold down CONTROL+OPTION and double click in the centre of the segment
the calculator should appear and you can enter in negative and positive values to slide the clip in the sequence.
Making it easier to use and access is something we have noted for the future.
