    Grouping clips on the timeline

    Hello

     

    I was wondering is there's a way to group a couple of clips on the timeline to become one clip? Also grouping clips and audio on multiple layers for example after sycning audio with video you want to lock this to stay the same at all time. What I want to do is to be able to apply same settings and movement to these clips at once instead of doing it every time. Also sometimes by mistake I do a Add Edit in a clip and I foget about it and I found myself wanting to put it back again.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Make a sequence out of the audio and video you want to make into one clip.  Then highlight the sequence in the bin and select Bin > AutoSync.  This will create a new subclip.

    Here's what I'd do:

    1. Add an effect to one clip, and adjust it (movement, etc) how you want it.

    2. Drag the effect icon from the Effect Editor window to a bin to save it.

    3. Select all the clips in the timeline you want to apply your saved effect to.

    4. Double-click the effect you saved in step 2.

    The effect will be applied to all the clips you selected in step 3.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Salah It sounds like you want the group un group like in premiere but that does not exist in AVID but what Carl has suggested works well it is just a change of work flow...

    As for removing an add edit use remove match frame edits...

    If for any reason that doesn't work - you may have added an effect to the clip before adding the edit, for example - what will work is to use extend edit to move the match cut to either the beginning or end of the clip in the timeline.

    But try "Remove match farme edits" first.

    How to select a coupel of clips quicker than clicking each one? It's an option I saw in FCP you can just select a couple of clips by dragging the mouse cursor and opening a selecting box.

    Click and drag around them.  Or use the Select Right/Left buttons.
