I must be hitting a key combination by mistake.
When I'm working on the Timeline at some point I notice that a portion of the tracks have a hatch like pattern on them and this pattern goes from the left edge for an amount of time until it comes to a line that looks like the play-head, except it's white with an arrow like pointer at the top of the line. It's just as if I've razored them and created new clips. The hatched area seems to play just fine without interruption right into the non-hatched part of the clips. I just know this is a headache just waiting to happen. Any hints?
Thanks,
Pete D.

Are you sure you're not looking at the inside of a compound clip? can we see a screen grab?

Here is a screenshot..
The white line past the end of the clips does represent the end of the compound clip before I trimmed the end of the dance. I used the razor tool and I deleted the unwanted material at the end of the clips. How do i get the compound container to "close up" and match the new end of the clips? what is the right way to delete material from the end of the clips in the compound clip and have the compound clip tighten up after the delete?

Take a look at the video linked below. Hopefully that will explain it.

Basically, just close the compound clip. Then shorten the compound clip by dragging the right handle to the left. Let go. Then, drag that right handle back to the right until the red line appears.

Hi,
Thanks for the video link. I will look at it later. I figured out the meaning of that line and then I went back to the main timeline and shortened it up as you suggested here. I didn’t realize that the compound clip itself was that dynamic, instead of just being a static container. Now I’m working on a credits scroll.
😎
Thanks again,
Pete D
