i'd like to bring this thread back up.
I request you introduce the rolling edit
option in the project view
i'm currently working on an animatic and have great difficulty re-timing it
what i miss in the project timeline are handles like we have in the clip timeline.
Now when i change the length of a clip, all the following clips move with it, the total project length changes ,
sometimes this is what you want .
But other times i only want to adjust the position of a cut between two clips, without it affecting the position of all the following clips.
Its a very basic thing that shouldn't be to difficult to achieve in the current architecture ( not as complex as say...introducing layers in the project view )
in fact this seems rather easy!
Just a case of shifting the out point of one clip while simultaneously shifting the in-point of the next for the same amount.
when the in and out point of the following clip hit the same frame then this clip gets hidden and the in point of the next clip can be adjusted
i like the solution that was mentioned in this thread of adding handles similar to those in the clip timeline view.
this would give great consistancy
(my favourite tvpaint improvement word) in the user experience.
Another problem regarding this is the sound.
when changing the layerlength for one clip and as the following clips shift their position the sounds remains put, resulting in an off-sync sequence.
