  • Looping back to start of project

    Often when I am working on the timeline and playing the last clip Edius will annoyingly loop back to the beginning of the project and play from there. This doesn't happen every time I play the last clip, in fact I'm not quite sure exactly how it happens! Is there a setting I have missed?

    How are you invoking playback, so we can test?

      I have the same problem. It happens whether you press play or the spacebar. Once the playhead reaches the end of the last clip it jumps immediately back to the start of the timeline. Edius has always done this (at least since 3.0) and SpeedRazor did it before that! I just assumed it was something to do with the way NLEs worked, and have learned to live with it. Annoying nevertheless.

        Buffered or unbuffered playback?

        Also, what are your 'Playback' settings set to?

          Playback settings are I think the default - see attached file.

            So Biopic, I am not alone!

            Playback is set to 5 frames buffered before playback and Continue playback when editing is ticked.

            Just tried to create it by starting playback on final clip with spacebar and then monitor start control and it stops OK at end of clip. However earlier when I was adding trimmed clips to the end of the timeline using the insert to timeline key sometimes it shot back to the start, but not every time.

            Sorry but it's a bit difficult to pin down so I'm pleased Biopic is with me or I'd think I was going mad.

              Just figured what happens - as last clip is playing toward the end I try to pause it with the space bar, if I mistime it and press spacebar at the actual end of that clip it goes back to start. Can I stop it doing that?

                Yes, I thought that might be what was happening (mistimed spacebar at end frame). It was either going to be that, or accidentally hitting CTRL-Spacebar when holding down the SHIFT key for buffered playback.

                Not much can be done to remedy that without a software change - time for a feature request?

                  Yes Barry that is exactly the point. I don't want it to go back to the beginning unless I tell it to (especially annoying if the timeline is say 2 hours long).

                    I find that if you put another clip or bars or black, further up the timeline, say 20 seconds past the end of your edit, it should give you time to stop at the end.

                      Yes I do that sometimes, but other times I forget and it's a pain.
