    is there a way to select all clips (in a certain bin) that contain “in” and “out” points, drag them to a new sequence and ignore the “in” and “out” points that are set on the source clips?

    The thing is that I have synced the raw clips with their corresponding sound clips and I have set the “in” points. Now I want to drag the raw clips (not the synced ones) to the timeline and also want them to include everything before the “in” points.

    I don’t want to remove the “in” points in case I need to sync some clips again later, so I’m wondering if there is a way to ignore them, while dragging them to the timeline?

    Best regards,

    I think the answer is no. If you have an in point marked, thats what you’ll get pasted into the sequence, that’s the whole point of a mark-in. Only way around that is to delete the mark-in.

    My question is why are you using a Mark-in as a sync point anyway… this all sounds very clunky. You should be creating sync-ed subclips to edit with. If you do that, you’ll never have to worry about finding a sync point again.

    If, for whatever reason, you are hell bent on marking that sync point in your master clips, I suggest you mark it with a Marker instead of with a Mark-In.

    Select a the clips in the source bin (ctrl A)

    Then press G to clear In and Out points.

    Thank you for the replies. Of course I created the synced subclips. I just wanted to keep the in points in original clips just in case. Guess I’ll clear them.

    You can add a marker on the mark in point if you really need to keep that mark.
