[Andy Neil] "Can you give an example of this, Oliver? Of the random nature I mean? I don't really see this with my work so I'm curious what this means."

Sure. You have series of connected sound clips - SFX, VO, etc. These overlap, so the clips tend to cascade vertically. Now you add another connected clip, such as a music cue. Depending on where you add the clip, it is placed above, below or somewhere in between other clips in this cascade. Thus, shifting clips up or down.

On video, I have connected clips. I want to add an adjustment layer as the topmost clip. Same thing. Most of the time it is placed below rather than above, which means you have to take an extra step to move it up. Sometimes when you do this, not all clips are re-stacked. Sometimes a few simply stay above and you have to then select these and manually move them below.
