  • Timeline Usage

    How can you add or delete space in a timeline? I.E. if I want to add or delete space and want to move every clip, audio file, and title on every track over say 5 min. and also have the time line markers move by that same amount so that they continue to mark their respective spots on the timeline with respect to what they are snapped to.

    Can this be done without having to move each clip or group of clips and also have to reset every marker point?

    1: First make sure you are in "Insert Mode" and Sync Mode is on, there is a button on the timeline which if you run your mouse over the tool tip will come up with "Insert or overwrite " select Insert. The drop down list next to the button is for Sync Mode make sure it is ticked.
    2: to delete space, right click the space and select "Delete Space" and all the clips should move together, if they do not there is an overlap that needs to be found not allowing movement, by moving the clips one by one in front of the overlap can help or making space for clips on the other tracks to move to will also help.
    3: When in Insert and sync either place your curor where you want the insert and while in the Player window with the clip to be inserted hit the "[" key, the clip will be inserted at the cursor point and all clips after that point will move in sync, or drag the new clip to the insert point and the same will happen.

      my preferred way is to click a clip and drag to right while holding Alt+Shift, all files on all tracks to the right of the clip will move along

      try it and you will like it, the same works in reverse for closing gaps

        Unfortunately the timeline markers will not move and I do not think that there is an easy way to achieve that. Best I can suggest is to export the markers to a *.csv file before moving the clips, use an Excel spreadsheet to add the appropriate offset to all the markers, then reimport them - very clumsy however.

          OK. Well I have been able to use sequences to speed things up in that department. but now I have another timeline related question.

          Is there a way to take all the clips on a timeline sequence and strip them (all at once) from any filters that have been applied.

          I can obviously apply filters to an entire group of clips, but I would like to be able to remove the filters and or adjust the filters to affect the entire seuence without having to delete or adjust each clip one at a time.

          Thanks...

              Did a search and review of the forum where I found a similar question to that which I have but it does not have the answer. I would like to open a gap between 2 clips by exactly xxSxxF. The Alt-Shift drag method is one way but I would like to enter an exact amount of time. Any suggestions?

                setting in and out point on ruler is a good measuring tool

                set in where you want to start, set out anywhere and then drag the outpoint until you see the desired duration in rec preview window

                then shift+alt+drag to outpoint

                now you have an exact gap

                  Thanks mate, this does give me an indication of the exact space that I would like to have but s+a+d is still does not (automatically) open the gap to the exact amount. While dragging I still have to keep a close eye to make sure that I hit the outpoint (by looking for the pop-up? highlight at the outpoint). Would be nice just instruct it to open a gap by xxSxxF. Something like "gap+5s/enter".

                    use snap

                    you start the dag with shift+alt and as soon as you are dragging, let go of shift+alt and you can keep dragging and it will snap to anything such as outpoint

                      Thanks for your suggestions. I'm trying to minimize the use of the mouse but it seems that in this case I won't be able to avoid it.
