    Correct method for Duplicating a Sequence

    How do I duplicate a sequence?

    I thought I'd previously done this by simply right clicking the sequence in the bin and choosing 'duplicate' however this option isn't available (Perhaps I'm getting mixed up with FCP)

    Not in front of Avid right now, but I believe that you select the sequence you wish to duplicate in the bin and type Ctrl-D.

    yes , and alt dragging to another bin does the same

    I think this got lost with the MC 8.5 UI "improvements"  

    As jwrl says Ctrl D still works in your bin. This is my preferred way as the duplicates name is selected and I can just type in a new name.
    Tomas's suggestion Alt drag to a different bin works but I probably do not want the duplicate to go to a different bin and I have to select the Duplicates name before renamimg
    Right Click in the Composer Monitor and choose Duplicate works and is great for having the duplicate immediately in the Composer window but then I have to be careful which seqence I carry on working with. Also I have to choose which bin and then the new sequence name before I can rename.

    The command is under Edit->Duplicate.

    Re: Correct method for Duplicating a Sequence

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for the reply's.

    But cntrl-D is certainly not working for me. The alt drag is a work around but kinda convoluted.

    Any suggestions why cntl-D isn't working? Just to clarify, I'm selecting my sequence in the bin, then pressing cntrl-D.

    Re: Correct method for Duplicating a Sequence

    SOLVED everyone.

    Apologies, I should have mentioned I was on a Mac. The shortcut is command-D (not cntrl-D.....I should have known!)

     

    Thanks

    Re: Correct method for Duplicating a Sequence

    You're not getting mixed up with FCP. It does seem to have disappeared with the menu "improvements". command+d works fine for me but I did like the contextual menu option and hope it returns.
