101: timeline went into a view that I've never seen
on Mar 14, 2017 at 9:34:15 pm

Not sure how I engaged it. Mouse cursor was still in A mode. All the clips were fixed and not able to be trimmed or moved. The connected clip was above; the primary clips were below and there was a mostly empty "track" sandwiched between with some sort of small identical icon where each of the clips were below. Undo accomplished nothing. Not a compound clip; not open in its own timeline. Clueless. I have not had the chance yet to get the 10.3 tutorials and run through them. If someone tells what it's called, I'll google it. Thanks.

That would have made sense but a student needed to finish step one and she had just put her favorites on the time line and I was showing her how to trim when I got the unfamiliar. just trashed it when a search got me nowhere and time was running out.

This sounds like you were in a roles mixing view.

Thanks! Now that I have a term I can google it. Tried images for new 10.3 update and got nothing. I assume this is a new feature?

actually no. I did a search for roles mixing view. It din't look anything like it. the roles title and color coding would have given it away even though I haven't gone through a tutorial on their use yet. This had no labels. it was just a blank Track for lack of a better term. sandwiched between a frozen primary and a couple of connected clips above. The only thing in the blank track were little vertical lines.

Sounds to me like you double clicked on a transition. You're aware of that view/mode? The precision editor. You're describing it pretty well.

yeah that would be the closest except there was no highlighted edit point the vertical lines looked thinner without the boxes around it and everything was frozen. Trying to move the vertical lines did nothing. the ESC key did nothing. So it might have opened that view and gotten frozen. I was able to highlight all and trash the timeline and start again which is not really a crash.

Haven't opened a precision editor in 10.3. Has it changed its look or behavior at all?
