  • How to enter clip start time (timeline)

    Hi again,
    did a lenghty search on this ( forum and manual ),
    to no avail.

    I would like to enter the timeline start time of a clip, numerically.
    (i.e.: I type a certain time, say 01:23:34:00 and after hitting enter,
    the clip should move to this position.)

    A few days ago, I've seen a right-click-menu, with the the item 'move' and was able to enter a time there.
    but ... I can't find it anymore ( gettin' old :)

    A workaround I found :
    Input the desired cue on a marker.
    Cut the clip.
    Move the cursor to marker.
    Insert clip at marker.

    Not very 'convenient' ...

    Thanks again, Jan

    Why not just go to that position and drop the clip or use the keyboard insert command?
    That is way easier
    Use the rec window cur position to type.

      move on timeline or move from Bin to timeline ??


      [Pos 1] = CTI move to 00:00:00:

      [+] and type 01:23:34:00

      [enter] = CTI jump to your typed time

      and now mark clip in bin

      [shift] + [enter]

      clip is on timeline and beginns on 01:23:34:00

      [+] and time 01:23:34:00 needs input from the num-pad

        Well, I work in a single window setup.
        No rec window.
        The clips were added directly to the timeline.

        OK, I could switch to dual window, for the positioning,
        but would still have to cut and paste ( or select and paste ).

        Wouldn't it be obvious, to have a position parameter in the clip properties ?

        Thanks anyway, I'll try the rec window.

        bye, Jan

          This time it's move on timeline.
          But I can easily put them in the bin.
          Only difference would be different commands, though.

          Anyway, this seems to be another good workaround.

          I'll have to reposition 50+ clips ( no rec time/TC in the meta data )
          and that will still be a lot of clicks ...
