    Move Clip Up / Down 5 second timer needs to be switchable

    Hello,

    I need the 5-second-timer on the "Move Clip Up/Move Clip Down" command to be switchable (on, off, custom value). With the current 5 second timer tidying up a sequence or working on syncmaps with 8 or more cameras is painfully slow:

    Example syncmaps: Imagine overwriting 9 videotracks with this method on 120 clips: Waiting time (5 seconds added up): At least 80 minutes!!

    Example cleaning a squence: You want to move a clip from V3 to V1, but have a clip on V2 that is overlapping 2 frames. You don't notice the overlap due to being zoomed out on the sequence and wonder why your edit is different. Before the overlap would have been cut to the boundaries of the clip you moved down to V1.

    The current behaviour was introduced in 2021.3, see the 2021.3 What's new document:

    With this release, you can move segments in the Timeline up and down without leaving filler each time the segment is moved consecutively. This also applies to moving segments horizontally using the Trim left and Trim right keys.

    IMPORTANT: This only applies with repeated up/down and left/right movement. If there is a change to the segment selection or more than 5 seconds have passed after the last move, moving segments will leave filler behind.

    For assistant work (mainly using syncmaps) the old behaviour (overwriting / leaving filler) is essential and is keeping me on the 2020.X versions. I'd love to upgrade my 10+ licenses in the post house I work in, but currently this is a deal breaker.

    Best regards,
    Christian

    If it's possible to make it "toggle" to the old behavior (overwriting) by holding down certain keys, that would be perfection!

    Yes please!  We need this ability to toggle on and off.

    I don't think there is an official one yet. It's usually posted on this forum just after it's out.

    I know how and where the  features list is posted. I'm just curious as to how you are in a position to announce contents of the "What's New" list before the Mods or anyone from Avid.

    Firstly, because I have a few contacts with avid beta testers & engineers, but secondly, I wouldn't announce this without avid making it public on yesterday's what's new zoom meeting.
