Ever since I've upgraded to FCP 7 I've been having trouble changing the duration of clips. When I select a clip in the timeline and try to go to Modify -> Duration, Duration is greyed out and unavailable to be selected. Similarly, when I open Modify -> Change Speed, I can see the duration, but the box with timecode is un-editable.
Has anyone encountered this? I can't believe that feature would have been taken out, but haven't found solutions anywhere either. Can anyone help me?
I guess the old standby advice would be a good idea here: trash your preferences and see if that takes care of it.
I just came from a company that had a MacPro that we upgraded to FCS 7; a MacBook that we clean installed 7 on and the company I just started with last week that got a MacBook Pro that we clean installed 7 on and I haven't encountered that problem, and I use both of those features often. So I can tell you it's not FCS 7.
Hopefully trashing the prefs works.
