    Re: Asking avid directly

    Oh great thanks, I'll just write teh question I posted before.

    See below

    'Does anyone know why, if you sync external audio to a subclip, you then can't trim or lenghten that clip in the timeline? Whereas if one sync's external audio to a master clip then subclip it, you can then trim or lengthen that clip in the timeline? Ultimately both are the same clip - synced audio and video in and out points - when brought to the timeline, one has just changed the order in which they have been created, so I dont see why they should behave differently when editing them in the timeline. 

    Would love to know why this happens as I've synced a load of subclips for a short i'm working on - I wont go into why I didn't sync master clips to audio first - and i'm looking to find a work around instead of having to go back and sync masters to audio and re subclip - somebody has suggested group clips function as an option'

    Pretty sure I've replied to this Q on Facebook. Can't seem to find it.

    Re: Asking avid directly

    Hi, must have missed your reply at the time, but this is what you said...

     

    'If you have done this in a Film Project, you cannot trim beyond the edges of a subclip.If this is not a Film Project, and you find you cannot trim beyond the edges of the sync clip, it is very likely that either picture or sound is no longer than you are trying to trim. Matchframe once to load the synced clip into the source monitor. With the source monitor active, and V1 in the source monitor selected, hit matchframe again and it will bring you to the original master clip for the picture -- or after matchframing one, deselect V1 and with one of the audio channels selected, hit matchframe again and it will bring you to the master clip for the sound'

    Yes, I'd already checked using matchframe, and the clip I checked IS longer than the the synced subclip I've created, i.e there should be handles to use. Micheal Phillips on the cow forum remembers this being an issue he encountered in the past, he suggested I check with Avid to find out why it behaves this way. he also recommended group clips as a workaround.

    Any more help would be appreciated.

    Sean:

    Did you check for handles on both picture AND sound? So if sound runs out, you won't be able to trim pas the end of the sound, even if there is more picture.

    Re: Asking avid directly

    Yes I thought of that and im pretty sure when I checked both sound and video master have handles, but I'll double check again and get back to you, thanks again for the response.
