Default A couple of questions....

A couple of questions I have for you hardened Edius experts.

1. Is there a way to select multiple clips and bring down the volume rubber bands to 0%? I don't want to use a volume filter as I want to be able to physically see the volume level on the clips.

2. From a zoom level greater than, say 5sec, its virtually impossiible to select the transition (to extend) between clips. The 'clip end handles' keep highlighting. You have to zoom in to select a transition for adjusting. In Edius 3 and before, it was so much easier to extend a clip, a transition, and so on. Its just too awkward now. Any easier way?

Thanks

In such case I normally place a graphic equalizer on the first clip, adjust accordingly, highlight all the clips that need adjusting, de-select the clip you just adjusted the eq (this will give you the effect in the information pallet) drag the (adjusted) eq and drop it on the highlighted clips, done.

I rarely use the rubber band feature as it's normally not important too actually see the rubber band, the audio level meters and my hearing are enough indication for me.

When I right click on a zoom level of 1sec or below (0.5sec, 10frames, etc), the right click works. But on any zoom level 2sec or above (even though I can see the transistion and can right click on it), it highlights the adjacent clip and hence brings up its properties.
Basically I have to zoom into a 1sec or below level to adjust transistion settings every time. Workable, but why not have it right click when the mouse pointer is clearly on the transistion itself and any zoom level.

Thanks for the tip, it will save time.

Thanks for the response. I need to pull the rubber bands down. It instantly shows which tracks the audio is muted on when adding sound tracks (songs, music, etc) without having to go into each audio filter to check.
OK for a few clips, but awkward for hundreds of clips.

Agree with that 100%, that why I always make noise about Edius being weak in the Audio department.

When you mostly work with your own footage, recorded in your own cam you should be used to the audio levels pretty fast.

I know my own cam is a bit hot, so once on the timeline the master fader in the audio mixer is set to -2 dB for every project i do.

Then when you Edit away you adjust audio levels clip by clip, once the project needs a buildup in volume you drop the master again 1 dB at the time and so on.

After you finished your project use the mastering tools of Izotope to level and compress.

There is no easy way to do what you are asking for, maybe in time Edius will get better in the Audio department (at least i hope) in the mean time you'll better find a work around that suits your needs the best .........
