Make sure you have both a source track indicator and a target track indicator illuminated (i.e. selected/turned on) in the header area of the timeline:
If one or both is off, the overlay and insert buttons will not function--this is logical, since you are selecting neither a source track, or a target track to place the clip in.
i tried to overlay another clip to the end of my project but it said somethign about the source clip being longer than my destination. I don't know why that happened because I didn't set a end length
Because you have that Audio Track with Assets that IS longer, this is probably not the issue, but if one has set an Out-Point for a Timeline (not common, but can accidentally happen), this can cause such an error.
Good luck, and would assume that Colin's Track Targeting is the "cure."
So how would I fix this?
Colin's answer is correct for the button.
but now its back to saying "the source is longer than the destination".
how do I make the destination longer?
I am grateful for everybody's help. I am brand new to this and went to an event over the weekend. everybody is asking for a video haha.
Take a look at this image, and see if you have something that looks like this. Note: this is from PrPro 2.0, so your exact GUI will look a bit different.
Could be that you had the Timeline in focus, had the CTI in the wrong spot, and accidentally hit the I (eye) key, or the O (Oh) key, for Timeline In, or Out-Points.
woot. thank you. I guess I had those down and it was selected somewhere.
I followed all the instruction listed above and still nothing happens? If I click
ignore' - the program crashes. But I found if the stock clip is 'not original' - it won't work - ie: speed and duration.
Thank you so much Colin,
Your are my hero, I knew it was so easy... I feel so dumb !!
