Two edit questions
on Feb 17, 2013 at 12:58:06 am

I don't seem to find anyway to do these two functions in X. Are they there?

1. A true replace edit using the playhead as a sync point. In most NLEs you would mark the timeline in/out and park the playhead on the sync point. In the source clip, you would have no marks and park the playhead on a corresponding sync point. Any way to do this in X? A typical example is to add a SFX to match a visual cue. Or when eye-matching a replacement shot.

2. Three-point edits where the out-point of the source matches the out-point of the timeline and the in-point of the source is left blank and is automatically determined by the in-point of the timeline.

1) Still not there. I still miss it.

2) "Replace from end". It's a command you have to assign manually, but it is there.

Shift - D, and Shift - Q work just fine for #2, and like Jeremy said, you can map the Replace from end.

I too miss the old replace.

Shift! Ah, yes, I forgot. Thanks.

Regarding sync'ed replace edits, the only workaround I've found is to place the two in-points at the source and timeline frames to sync, make the edit and then trim back to fill the missing front portion of the clip before the sync point.

[Mark Morache] "Shift - D, and Shift - Q work just fine for #2,"

[Oliver Peters] "Shift! Ah, yes, I forgot. Thanks."

It is true, shift-d does work, but it is storyline only (primary or selected secondary).

Shift-q, obviously, adds another back timed connected clip.

Replace from end will replace any selected clip pretty much anywhere, except it doesn't work on a range of a clip.

I find that all of these methods have better times to use than others, although throwing in a connected clip at any time is pretty easy to manage.
