    Loop Selected Clips

    Some odd behaviour here. When I go to the bin menu command 'loop selected clips', the first clip loads into the source monitor and begins to play as you'd expect. But it's when I hit 'tab' that the system goes bananas. Instead of skipping to the start of the next selected clip and playing from that point, 'tab' sparks off an endless and uninterruptable cycle through all selected clips. It's like some demented, disjointed flick-book. Surely I'm doing something wrong here? I've used this laptop for AXP for almost 2 years without a single issue (lucky me) so I'm sure I'm missing something desperately obvious. Any ideas guys?

    Re: Loop Selected Clips

    This may sound silly, but could your tab button be sticking? My spacebar is wearing out, so play/stop can be an adventure. I've also had intermittent problems with my shift key.

    Blow some comressed air in the keyboard and see if that doesn't fix it? Otherwise, I'm at a loss software-wise.

    Nope, no sticky keys, but thanks for the suggestion! There's no keyboard mapping that could be interfering. I'm using 4.6 as well, arguably the most stable 4.x version. Hmm...

    If nobody on these forums have experienced this before, then it can only be something to do with my particular system configuration. Strange though, this laptop setup is precisely the same one Computer Video Editing mag (UK) used to test the initial AXP release.

    It's not the end of the world, it would just be a handy feature to have work properly.

    Hi, I have the same problem in Media Composer 5.0.3. I've never used the function before so I couldn't say if it worked.

    Does anybody have the same problem? Any ideas how to solve it? It isn't so important function, but looks very handy. Smile

    Re: Loop Selected Clips

    It sure sounds like a sticky key.  But you say it isn't.

    Have you tried using the tab key in other applications (like Word) just to confirm that it's not a sticky key?

    Yes, sure, it isn't a sticky key. Tab key works perfectly for Edit review and for jumping between takes in a script.

    But thanks for an idea.

    Re: Loop Selected Clips

    after 8 years of your system being stuck... haha. 

    i found out that you have to set the play function on the tab key, like in the standart setting. i had it set to switch from timeline to sourcemonitor view and it had the same behaviour you describe. 

    im sure you have found the solution meanwhile, but just for other stumbling over this post....

    all the best.
