Reverse order of clips?
Reverse order of clips?
by Philip Nidler on Dec 8, 2019 at 9:38:35 am


I've put down about 20 clips into the timeline, however for some dumb reason I started from the bottom up so now the last clip is first. Is there any way to reverse the order in the timeline with a button or a simple click instead of dragging each and every clip into chronological order?

Thank you! :)

I was faced with this recently.

Not one button, but try this:

- Make sure "show used media ranges" is on
- select the event(s) in the browser where your media is
- click in the search bar, then click the icon next to it (it's called Toggle Filter HUD)
- Add the filter "Used"
- now with what's left, in column view arrange by content created / name / whatever else will set the in chronological order
- select all
- append edit (e)
