    Live Timeline

    Hi,

     

    Is there any possibility to disable the new Live Timeline function?

     

    Thanks in advance

    It's a very good innovation, but the way I work, i would prefer to disable as it slows down my workspeed.

    Probably because it has some issues.

    No livetimeline issues reported....  Only Mac sluggishness which we have a fix for.

    Re: Live Timeline

    There is no technical issue.

    It is just changing my work habits. After nearly 30 years of AVID you get some automatisms that are difficult to change ... So the possibility to switch it off would be appreciated.

    Re: Live Timeline

    Same with me. If you don‘t need it for actual screening purposes it only slows down my habitual workflow. 

    Please make it optional in future releases. 

    Thanx in advance Marianna. 🤓

    Re: Live Timeline

    Agreed. After almost 20 years of working with and studying MC - it's too hard to change work habits, and that's really slows down the workflow.

    Re: Live Timeline

    I agree. Please allow it to be turned off.  25 years with Avid, and a long established workflow and the Live Timeline gets in my way.

    Folks...

    Can you be VERY specific about where they are getting tripped up?

    Re: Live Timeline

    Curious how its getting in the way too? If you didnt know it was there it'd be just like using MC for the last 25 years. 

    I guess because you expect something to stop with a random click and youd rather it stop then keep playing? that I can understand but IM eaily ignorable.

    Re: Live Timeline

    For me, one example is that I have mapped the Expand and Contract Timeline functions to the 4th & 5th buttons on my mouse.  I use them constantly, and I expect playback to stop the moment I click my shortcut buttons.  But now I always have to stop playback first, which is kind of annoying to me.  Not a huge deal breaker, just being forced to change my long-term workflow habits.

    Absolutely want the option to disable this new “live timeline”, to use it ONLY as needed.
