  • Re: Media Composer Trial version- unable to use different modes

    Yes I was trying to click other modes but in the timeline pallet. What is the command pallet? Is this the same thing? Thank you, for your input . Ok so correct me if I am wrong... it seems that source/record is the default mode. How did I end up in edit mode? What would cause that to change? So if these...

  • Re: Ability to nudge clips UP/DOWN on tracks with keyboard commands

    To the mods... WE KNOW WE CAN COMMAND/CTRL use the mouse/wacom. However it's an inaccurate way of moving the clip. Example, if you have a comp 3-4 frames ahead of the edit, it's going to snap to that if you don't zoom all the way in to do it. That wastes time zooming in first and then doing...
  • Easily replace clip with longer clip

    So often I'll find myself with a certain clip in a sequence I need to replace with a (inevitably longer) different clip, but often something (usually sfx) will be overlapping it. The fastest way I've found so far is to insert the new clip ahead of the old clip, lift out the old clip, then trim...

  • Tutorial: Colouring the Timeline - Revisited

  • Tutorial: Duplicate

    Duplicate is one of those things that are taken for granted - after you discover it! I was using the Undo/Redo List when I began learning MC. Then I found out about the Ctrl +Z combination to Undo a step. It was not until a month had passed that I discovered the Duplicate function. Regards, Douglas This...

  • Tutorial: Copying part of the Timeline

    This is one of those very simple things that not so many newcomers know about. It is simple, but it can be very useful. Once you have copied your selection to the Source Monitor you can use it as you would any material loaded into the monitor. Not only, as I have shown, adding to the end of your timeline...
