    Editing from the bin.

    I have enabled edit from the bin, but whenever i try and use the "I/E" or mark in button I get the warning bleep, and nothing happens.

    These are grouped clips I have tried plain clips too.  What am I missing?

    Re: Editing from the bin.

    It sounds like you're selecting the clip in the bin what you want to insert, and are then immediately hitting a Mark-in or Mark-out key (or button). If this is the case, then you're not using to tool quite right. After selecting the clip to insert, you have to select the timeline, position the cursor, and then hit the mark in/out keys (as appropriate). Then you can hit B to insert from the timeline.

    Alternatively, and probably the better way IMHO is to set your in and out markers first, go to the bin, select the clip and hit B.

    If you're still having problems, create a new blank sequence. Then go to a bin, select a clip, and hit B and see if that works.  If that doesn't work, then there's something else wrong (tracks not enabled, etc.)

    Re: Editing from the bin.

    I'm definitely missing something.   I can mark an in and out in "script view" but I cant cut it in.  I can then change to "Frame view" and cut in the shot, but not mark it in or out.

    I can mark a duration in the timeline and then cut it in from "frame view," but it ignores the position of the playhead. I guess I'll try toggling the different ghost/virtual in and out mark settings.

    Re: Editing from the bin.

    OK, I see what you're talking about. I'm going to have to check and see if this is a bug or not. In scrpt view, I can play back the frames in the bin and set my ins and outs using I and O. Hitting B does not send the segment to the timeline.

    To make it work you have to double-click on the frame and then hit B. I don't think this is proper behavior, but it does work.

    In fame view, you can only set in and out while the clip is playing back. You can't stop the clip and then set the marks. Again, I think this is a bug, but I'l have to check. The workaround is to hit I and O while playing back.

    I never use these modes myself. I prefer to open the clips in the source viewer where I have a lot more control. But that's just my preference.

    I'll see about escalating this one and see if these are bugs or not well documented but expected behaviors.

    Re: Editing from the bin.

    Ok, So I was missing something,  I knew I'd been using it before.  Loading into the composer is mostly preferred, but I'm already advancing the thumbnail to make it representational.  It's handy to at least mark an in While I am there.

    This still doesn't work as it should in 2018, so I think it's an unaddressed bug.

    The clip has to be playing for in/out to work. Try that.

    Thanks.  That is the solution.  Someone mentioned I try this 'edit from bin' feature, but I don't find it useful.
