I noticed that I have 2 small red marks that look like an equal sign at an edit point on an audio track.
Does anyone know what these mean?
Second question: I started a project within a project because they shared the same media and now it has grown to monster sze. I want to split this sub project away from the main project. Can I do this in explorer drag and drop the bins from one project to the other? I have already created the new project in the project box at sign in. Or is it better to do it within MC? The media is not moving from the computer. If I have to do it within MC, how do I do it most effectively? Open the bin in the new project, make a copy, then delete it in the original project?
At some point you made a cut with the add edit tool, the marks are match frame edit.
Create a new project (name it with a 2 for example) with the same format and setting then at the root level of the project (shared or on an external drive) make a copy of the bins that you wnat to move into the new project
Hope this help

As the previous poster stated, those are "Match Frame" edits. Meaning that you've only made a cut or slice, but you didn't disrupt the continuous nature of the clip. Normally, these marks are white. You get red ones, when you've altered something about one side or the other. I see from your screenshot that you likely have a different audio level on one side of the edit point.

How'd you do that? You can only create a project and only one project can be open at a time.

Thanks Reineclair, that's what I thought they are. Usually I put in/out marker on both sides and right click and select "remove match frame edit". When I did this on this particular edit, nothing hapened. I guess it was because as you said, I had changed the level or something. Thanks for the confirmation.
Sorry Reineclair, After I make the new project, do I copy and paste in MC or in windows exploer?
Kenton, I'm sorry to mislead you. It was not really a separat project, it was in the main project but was recognizable by different bin names. Names of bins for one project all started with the letter "A" and the names of bins of the other project all started with the letter "Z". Example, a bin named " Z talking heads" and a bin named "A talking heads". That's why I wanted to get them out. I had too many bins to keep track of.

Ah, got it.
Easiest way is to do it via Windows Explorer (or Finder on Mac). Locate the original project folder, select all the Bins (ie, .avb files) that you want to copy. Then locate the new project folder and paste.
Thanks Kenton... I appreciate the help. After I paste in the new project, can I delete the bins in the original project? BTW, I love your quote, "Detail oriented". I love it.

Yes, you should be able to... just verify that everything made it over to the new project first of course.

Yep... I noticed years ago when drafting up a CV for a job my wife prompted me to say that I was obsessed with quality and I felt the wording was too strong. So I told her, "I am not obsessed! I'm detail-oriented." Been meaning to put that on a t-shirt.
