Vegas Studio 10
Something that puzzles me in editing on the Timeline. When I cut the vid, using arrow keys for precise frame, then press S (splice). I can select/delete the portion I don't want.
Later on I may need to move the clips about and I find that unless I'm very careful as I drag a clip, I can stretch it maybe a little and Lo and Behold - I find the parts previously discarded find their way into the final Edit.
Of course you guys examine ther whole Vid, frame by frame and wouldn't fall into this trap...(unless there is a better way of cutting into a clip)...but I had a couple of frames with some unwanted "action" (not the main "take"), and as it was only about 5-frames I thought nothing of it.
However when I merged the two pieces (where the offending frames were removed), - those Offending frames - there they were in the final Render....
Is there a "better" way of permanently removing pieces?
I'll admit I don't use the Trimmer feature and don't understand why it's there . . . . does the Trimmer have some special function not available on the timeline..?
The reason I don't use it is because it's almost hidden by all the other Vegas clutter that slides about the screen....well seems like it.
I tried Chroma-key yesterday, and another item appeared behind the Level-Meters - it was the Chroma-settings....(More clutter, Grr).
