MC7.04 Audio keyframe editing
on Oct 21, 2014 at 12:04:45 pm

Hi,
We just upgraded all our Media Composer systems from 5.5 to 7.04 (I know, 8.2 is just out, but...).
Anyway, everything seems to have worked but there's one thing that bothers me immensely. Before, when I had a clip with several mono tracks, as they come in from a camera, I could add audio keyframes to all tracks in the clip and move them simultaneously up and down or left and right.
Now, I can only do that to one track at the time.
Is this a settings issue or has it changed for some reason?

Anyone?

Thanks,
Erik Jagberg

Very annoying! You Must shift+select individual or mark in-out around the range of keyframes you want to adjust simultaneously. No setting to change that of which I am aware.

Initially I saw this as a problem. However as time went on, I found the solution as Ricky pointed out. Mark an IN and and OUT surrounding the keyframaes you want to adjust, enable tracks as needed and they will all highlight when you select 1. You can also shift click to select or deselect. The new added bonus is that you can copy or cut and paste keyframes. The first keyframe you cut or copy will wind up on the Mark IN point of the highlighted track. Multiple tracks worth of keyframes can also be cut/copied and pasted as desired.

1 caveat. When audio keyframes are highlited (Pink) you will not see your normal "IN to OUT" highlighted in purple. Either deselect all the audio keyframes, or even quicker, click on the Timecode track and all will be deselected, returning the marked range to its normal highlighting.

Yeah. It's very annoying.

I like the new flexibility Scott detailed but losing the original simplicity adds a lot of extra clicking for something I do all the time.

I agree. It means a huge number of extra clicks since I use this all the time.
Sure, I can draw a lasso or shift-select the keyframes, but the old funcionality is still lost.
And I can't understand why AVID didn't make this a selectable option - adding new ways of working for those who want it while keeping the old ways for us who don't.

Don't click a lot. LASSO the keyframes. Upper left to lower right lasso and you highlight all the keyframes, and then drag one, all the rest will follow.

Always invoking trim mode with key frames near the end of clips, when lassoing. Is there a modifier to prevent that?

Make the keyframes not so near the cut points. And don't lasso the points. Work around is to mark IN and OUT if they are on cut points
