What did I Click to get this ?
on Oct 11, 2018 at 12:54:13 pm

Good Morning, was editing a little surfing video from the storm yesterday, everything going nicely until... I think I accidentally clicked on something somehow caused quite a mess on my timeline that I don't understand what I'm seeing. ( see attached photo) I hit the Undo button to try to reset to no avail. Can you tell me what I'm seeing with the A and B and X ?? and how to get back to my original looking timeline, as always appreciate your help.

Right click on the track header (far left of track where the Track Motion, Track FX, etc options), in the drop down menu un-check 'Expand Track Layers'.


Best Regards......George

You almost certainly clicked at the point where two events met together. Pressing 5 on the Numeric Keynbard is another way of getting iy back to normal.

[Richard Jones] "You almost certainly clicked at the point where two events met together."
I do wish there was a way to make this a USER Preference OPTION. Take it out from the default. So many people click on it and end up getting this. And Richard, yah know what? I’ve read of only a handful of people who use this feature. Personally I’ve never ever used it.

The advice here https://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/24/1022471 applies if you are in the Expanded Edit Mode which Graham refers to above. That mode was introduced in VPro 12.
If the OP has "Expanded Track Layers", George's tip of course works. Btw., that feature was unfortunately dropped from VMSP as of v 14 by Magix.

Grazie:
Doesn't sound unreasonable but pressing 5 as I suggested is so easy anyway.
Although I don't use it much either, the A/B Roll is extremely useful. Gary's demo in the recording of the webinar at the launch of Vegas 12 has a brilliant example of hoe this works.

Jorma:
That's disappointing.

Richard

I suddenly entered this state of AB tracks. Happens regularly, and fix is easy. But in Vegas 15, in my current project, I can't remove the AB setting. If I press #5 Vegas locks up and crashes. There are no red edges on the clips. In Preferences>Edit> everything is greyed out.

If I start a new project, this is not a problem.

Seems like my project itself has become corrupt. It's a big project, and not cool, I've yet to try the backup. Anyone else with this problem? Really disappointed that Magix can't change this little thing. Have they fixed it in 16?

This has caused me a pain many times. But, I have times when I found it useful. But, yeah, irritating...

Hi Robert,

Here are two methods that may or may not help, that you may or may not have already tried, but they are simple and quick to test.

Method 1 - I'm sure you have saved your project many times. If you are using 'Save' any garbage build up is staying with the project. If you use 'Save As', to a different name, this will dump some of the built up garbage and may straighten things out.

Method-2 - Open 2 entances of Vegas Pro. In the first, open your problem project. Select everything in the timeline. Then copy and paste into the second project. This method may leave behind the garbage. However, using this methods has some restrictions. Copy and Paste from one timeline project to the other will only copy the cuts, edits and effects applied to the events in the timeline, it will not copy anything applied at the track level, Project Media bin level or Project level. If you have just a few effects on the track, media, or project level that you can easily duplicate in the new project, this may work, if you have extensive track, media, and project level FX's, it may make this method unreasonable.

Best Regards......George

I still don't understand the benefit of expanded edit mode. Whenever I accidentally activate it I cant hit escape fast enough.
