Duration of a clip in the timeline
Duration of a clip in the timeline

Hi guys!

I've just started to use DaVinci Resolve 12 and one thing is bothering me a lot.. I can't figure out how can I check and change a clip duration in the timeline. Like in FinalCut if you click on a clip you'll see its duration above the timeline in the 'duration control' (see attached pic).
Now every time I need to know a clip duration I have to subtract start time from end time of the clip and I'm not so good in the math :)

Tried to google, but it seems so obvious that no one talks about it.

I would be very appreciated for any advice!

Yep, it is very simple. Just double click the clip in the timeline and duration is displayed in the left hand (source) viewer. See attached.

Shouldn't need to double click to find a clip duration, sometimes I have something in the source viewer that I'd lose by sending timeline clip up there. Must be away to do it without sending the clip out of the timeline, surely? In FCP 7 you'd right click and there was the duration. Pretty basic information should be easy to find?

Wow, this is a blast from the past.

It's as if Resolve and FCP 7 were completely different programs!

Select clip in timeline, click I at beginning of clip and O at end of clip. Look above timeline viewer on left, and should see the time for the duration of that clip.
