Ie. make a mixdown, it is ambiguous to use the word export for that, imo a
user interface bug, export should be used to export contiguous files of
tracks that consist of many clips and with the option choice of having it
done raw or with track effects applied.
From this follows the enhancement request that:
save and saveas in edit view includes metadata
export in edit view excludes metadata
mixdown in multitrack view should go back to be called mixdown, it is a
foggy concept to call it export, export is needed for a different
functionality, see below. It is GOOD that mixdown, currently mislabeled
export, asks for a filename instead of just opening the file in edit view,
export in edit view should come in two flavours, ie. with or without track
effects applied and should output all tracks as contiguous files starting at
