[Simon Ubsdell] "I was just making the point that X's clip connections encode editor intentions in only quite a mild sense - only some of the clip connections actually relate to conscious decisions on our part."

As usual, I doubt we disagree much.

The software does exactly what you tell it. Primary, secondary, connection -- to whatever extent you consider the role of the clip when you cut it in, and choose how you cut it in accordingly, some intent is captured in a way that cannot be true with traditional timelines.

Also, I think it's common and even somewhat necessary for the relationship a clip bears to other clips in the storyline to change as the edit evolves.

[Simon Ubsdell] "Seriously though, you do sometimes (and sometimes often) have to reassign clip connections because they are actively not reflecting what you you had in mind. Not a criticism, just as observation."

I'd agree with that.

Adjusting clip connections is the new track patching.
