    I somehow managed to enable a setting that now allows me to edit audio/video events separately. For example, I drop a video with an audio track onto the timeline, but if I drag the edge of the event to shorten it, only the video portion or audio portion moves. They do not move together like they used to. The audio track then shifts and turns pink indicating it is now out of sync with the video. Ripple edit is switched off.

    It does not do this for all events, only some, so I suspect I have accidentally hit a keyboard shortcut combination that is effecting certain events. Any ideas what that could be or what I have done?

    My system specs: Intel i7 970, 12GB RAM, ASUS P6T, Vegas Pro 12 (x64), Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, Vegas Production Assistant 1.0, VASST Ultimate S Pro 4.1, Neat Video Pro 2.6

    Nigel, you may have accidentally clicked the Ignore Event Grouping icon on the taskbar. Ctrl+Shift+U is the shortcut so I can’t imagine doing that by mistake.

    Mike is correct, check that setting.

    I did, but whether I enable or disable it, the video and audio still move independently of each other. It only does it to some events in the project.

    Ctrl L will separate the audio from the video and visa versa.

    Perhaps you have mistakenly ungrouped (“U”) or Cleared the grouping (“Ctrl+U”) of some of the Video & Audio events?

    Yeah. Maybe you have to manually go to event video/audio event you want grouped, highlight each pair of them you want grouped, and press “G” to group them again.

    Thanks Roger. That did the trick.

    Merry X’mas to you and your family
