Windows 7/ Premiere elements 14.1
It sounds like you're talking about rippling. Rippling is when your add or extend a media file in the middle of your movie and it pushes all of the media that follows it to the right. This is the default setting and it's what you want to happen most of the time.
As I show you in my book in Amazon, if you hold down the Ctrl key as you add media to your timeline, you will override rippling and the media to the right will remain in place.
Thank you for your answer, Steve
Yes, that is exactly what i'm talking about.
But what about if my video files are already in the timeline?
Can I alter/expand the files (video) in the middle of the movie, without altering/ pushing forward the audio files?I
It would be helping if i somehow could "lock" a timeline track, so it wouldn't be pushed forward according to other tracks.
Yes. (You've tried, using my method, right?)
Yes, I've tried your method, but the point here is that it works if you hold the ctrl button as you add the content to the timeline, but it doesn't seem to help me when the content (media/video files) are already in the timeline.
Holding ctrl and dragging the video makes it stop at the next video, so it wouldn't get dragged over it, but that's not what I need in this case.
So is there anyway to turn off this rippling effect? Or go around it?
No. This is how auto ripple works.
