  • Transition markers?

    I don't know what they are called, those little green and yellow bars that come up when you click on a transition. They allow for transition manipulation.
    Is there a way to turn these off? Thanks.

    There is not... These are the only way to know what edges of what clips you have selected. Why do you want to turn them off?

      Because I often need to adjust the time of a transition. And those darn markers get in the way.
      So let's say I have the timeline at a 15 or 30 second scale. A 22-frame transition is very small to click on. When I click on it, those markers get highlighted (not the transition) and I can't adjust the time using the alt-U shortcut. I have to change the timeline scale to 1 second so the transition is now large and only then can I highlight it to adjust the time.
      Did I explain it OK?

        yes, you explained well and this cheeses many users off

        in Edius4 or Edius3, a transition could always be selected no matter how small

          I've mapped two very convenient keys to be keyboard shortcuts for zooming in and out of the TL as I'm doing this all the time.

          The only thing I'd like to see is the playhead auto centred in the view when zooming.

              It is not the markers getting in the way, it is that the transition can't be selected unless the timeline view is smaller than the transition (If the transtion is 1 second you have to have the view be .5 seconds or less)

              Drives me nuts but it has been that way since 5

                I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who has issues with this. Yes Anton, In version 3, I never had this problem because those markers were not there. I imagine there are folks who like those markers, but NOT ME.
                Maybe mapping keys for the timeline scale is the way to go. At least until version 6. Maybe then we can turn them off.

                  Paul... it is NOT the bars that cause this... please know that they have nothing to do with this problem.

                  If you are not careful here I will start having to call you JIm Stamos! LOL

                    Oh, please don't do that. I'm not THAT bad!! ;>)

                    I know you like those markers. I still remember your enthusisum at NAB when they arrived. But if they are not the problem, what is? And what is the fix? I want to be able to highlight the transition only so I can change it's duration. I'm just tired of having to perform extra steps (changing timeline scale) to do so . . . in the newer Edius versions.

                        Oh, how I miss that centered on timeline.
