Hello, thanks for stopping by to read my question.
I'm having an issue where it's very difficult to move a small clip all the way to the timeline.
1) Here is my work area:
I am trying to move the small clip selected to the red timeline. When I try and move it when its in this zoom length, it won't let me. I try and hover over the small clip for the mouse button, but i only arrows pop up (arrows that extends clips and trims clips), instead of the mouse.
2) Here is the same work area (zoomed in):
Now I've managed to get the mouse when I hover over the clip and I can move the clip freely. However, recently when I move the clip out of the work are, the work are doesn't move. The clip only moves out of the work area. Then I have to move the work area again and move the clip again and repeat. I have tried to fix this issue by resetting my preferences, however it still is not fixed.
Please suggest easier ways I could perform this action. Also, is there a keyboard shortcut for this?
I am looking forward to your replies
Thank you very much for you help.
If I understand you correcly, you are looking for the " [ " -hotkey.
When selected the layer in your composition, your clip will move it's starting point to your current frame (position of the timeline cursor) when hitting " [ ".
Obviously, hitting " ] " will move the ending point to your current frame.
Also, your workarea can be set to your current time using "B" for the beginning ,and "N" for the ending of your workarea.
Hope this helps.
Thank you very much for this reply
