    Hello,

    I was told by Avid Tech that you cannot select multiple edit points. However, take a look at this video and let me know if this is a "trick" or just a bug in the software, or completely by design. My goal is to be able to drag two edit points left and right.  The video will explain it for itself. Here's the link.

    Thank you folks :)

    Hi,

    I couldn't duplicate this on v8.9.2, but I also couldn't see how you were selecting multiple edit points. I tried using the ripple trim and overwrite trim tools, but whenever I clicked on the second edit point the first was deselected. Can you list the specific steps you took?

    Hi camoscato,

    I selected the multiple edit points by holding down the Shift key. But what I actually did was create transitions first. So i'm actually selecting transitions, then deleting them using the DEL key.  Once I did that, the pink vertical lines magically appeared on both of them! Big Smile

    Also, once you select a second edit point, you're right that the pink vertical lines on the first go away.  Not sure if this is a a "trick".

    Ok, but I still can't tell exactly what you did to get both transitions selected. What tool were you using when you held down shift and clicked? Did you have to click on both sides of both edit points?

    What you're looking at is merely an artifact left over from deleting the transition points. You still only have 1 real edit point, the last one selected.

    This is obviously related to your earlier post on multiple edit points. To which I'm still trying to figure out exactly what you're trying to accomplish; you say you don't want to do a slip edit. So what are you trying to do? If all you want to do is slide an entire clip left or right, just go into segment mode, grab the clip and slide it where you want it. If for multiple consecutive clips, shift-click to select the clips and slide.

    Hello everyone,
    Uff, I interpreted ....Smile


    It is necessary to have "Transition manipulation" switched on in the timeline, mark two "transitions" with "shift" and delete the effect. There is a possibility of trimming as shown in the video.


    I have no use for it, only hypothetically necessary at various corrections on the same frame and possibly shift ...Hmm

    DStone - selecting multiple segments and dragging them left to right (i.e. slipping) doesn't work for me because it creates empty gaps in the timeline, and then I have to manually fill them in later: see my video below:

    https://youtu.be/vvhceLdwY-I

    (Hence i don't like it).

    The method I showed in the previous video allows me to drag the pink vertical lines left and right, keeping everything in sync, and does not cause any gaps in the timeline.

    That's what I'm attrying to accomplish.  I've done this hundreds of times in Premiere Pro.  Looks like Avid has a limitation where you cannot select multiple edit points, and the only way toPost
     

     get it to work is through this "trick" method if you will...

    You're creating blank space because the mode is wrong. You're in overwrite mode, You need to be in segement mode.

    Now select the clips the clips and drag.
