    Finding clips

    wset90 Level 1

      Further to my last query about the length of video when sharing it to a pc as an avi file, is there a quick way to find clips that, during editing, might have "strayed" down the timeline thus lengthening the film?

          Initially press the [\] key. This shrinks your timeline to fit to one screen. Position the CTI (the vertical line that moves with the video) towards the end of the video and press [PgDown]. Pressing [PgDown] moves from one segment to the next. If the CTI goes beyond where you think it should zoom the timeline in to see what is there. If it's a 'rogue' select and delete it.

            Neale,

            Thank you so much! Yes, I had some rogue clips at the end of the film. I have spent hours trying to "eyeball" so I am thrilled to resolve the problem.

            Cheers,
