yup, I'm pretty much a newb with vid-editing. At this point I don't need a lot of power tools just simple editing. I think I've got audio fading and "dip to black" working ok -- but now I'd just like to simply remove a few seconds from a clip (so the fade outs don't take 10 seconds)oo
I believe I've found the right instructions: set a mark in and out and "extract" button in the monitor window -- or ripple delete?? -- Thing is _nothing_ happens on extract. And the ripple delete is disabled. Can anyone guide me with what's up? the lift does nothing too. But the loop button does play the in/out range repeatedly. Harummph. You can see my desktop in the attached image. my in/outs are what appeared when I marked them from the monitor/"program" window (upper right pane correct?).
The middle bottom pane is called what?
Another frustrating thingie is in the middle bottom pane, after the end of the clip there is a range/sequence/key frames marked. I can drag the endpoints around -- but can't get rid of them. You folks have any idea what that "thing" is and how to remove it?
