  • Select all the videos in one track along with their associated audio ???

    Posted by Mathilde Stocchi on October 7, 2023 at 11:08 pm

    Do you know how I can select all the videos in one track along with their associated audio
    ? I have two video tracks and one audio track. I’ve arranged all the segments I
    intend to use for my montage on the upper video track. My goal is to
    select all the videos in this specific track and generate a new sequence
    (so I need both video and audio). I tried using the lasso tool but it only
    selects the clips on the track but not the associated audio. I know I can use
    the shift button, but it would require for me to select each clip one by one,
    that is very time consuming.

    Thank you 😀

    There is a little icon for linking picture and sound on the left of the timeline, above the Red Arrow selection. If you turn that on when you Red Arrow select the video it will also select the corresponding sound from the same clip.

    I tried lassoing the entire video track and that did not select the sound along with it, but if I Shift+select it will continuously select the sound along with the picture.

    You can use the lasso option if you have all the picture and sound you want on their own tracks and then lasso everything and turn off the tracks you don’t need clips from. But I suspect you are trying to avoid the work of sorting these out.

    Hm… re-reading your post it seems that I’m suggesting something you already know! Oh well… I tried. 😉

    there is a command to select everything to the right of your curser.

    Turn on the tracks you want, and then do a “select everyting to the right”
