Am trying to replace footage, but keeps saying I cant. Am dragging from browser or viewer, the clip to the 'replace' box, after having selected the clip in timeline I want to replace. the clip wanted to be replaced has a dissolve at each end. the new clip is plenty long to fit and nothing has in and out settings. Have even tried by taking off the dissolves. Still doesnt work.
Joseph, thank you for answering....really appreciate
I havent marked any in and out points, but I just did and tried it and it is still not working....oh boy...
What do you think, kind one.
I select clip in timeline, then maked the in and out and that clip in timeline, then dragged the new very long clip in to 'replace' box and no go. its alerting that it cant be replace due to the clip not being selected. But the clip is selected and it is connected to the media in the browser window.
It matches up the playhead placement. So if your replacement clip is plenty long enough, but your playhead is at the beginning or end, there very well may not be enough "handles" on a particular side of the playhead.
