Hi, I know that if one holds shift, you can click multiple clips one by one and then move them together. However while editing lots of parts of a video that have multiple clips working together (many short images, text and audio etc...) this ends up taking an incredible amount of time. Say I want to move 3 bars to the right, those 3 bars might have 20 little clips in different layers, so I would have to shift click them all, move them, and what if I want to move them again, back one space - you have to painstakingly clicking each one again??? It seems like someone else MUST have noticed this was a problem. Click-dragging over multiple clips one would think would be the obvious solution to highlight desired clips to move as a group, but click-dragging over items in the timeline seems to do nothing. Ctrl-A and holding alt while moving clips doesn't work, because that is of course moving all of the clips in the entire movie. Please please help.
I dropped a lot of money on this program with high hopes of making a bunch of zany videos with my kids but so far have only been met with hair-pulling frustration. I loaded a few images, a text effect, a video, and an audio clip playing over top of these things. All good. THEN we decided that we wanted a different video clip at the start of the movie... So this leads to the 'should be simple like on all other programs but cannot find an answer anywhere online even though many people are asking the same thing' situation. Ctrl+A highlights everything as one would expect, but when one moves the clips when they are all highlighted to move them as a group, they all snap back to the beginning of the film no matter what. I had varying results by painstakingly trying to ctrl+shift click every single clip and effect without clicking a millimeter in the wrong spot, and not all of them will move at once, seemingly randomly. So trying to move and realign each separate clip a few seconds down the timeline resulted in complete catastrophe. Now the video clip that I am trying to load appears black no matter how or where I load it, although the audio plays. The text effect still appears in the timeline, but will not appear in the video. Even if the video and text still appeared, I would now have to re-readjust every single other clip to lign up with the end of the new video at the start of the film individually, which would probably glitch out the program and destroy our work even more, so I am asking for help to try to figure this out and console the kids. What was supposed to be fun family time turned into angry confusion time. Please, please help, the dent this program put in my wallet is too large for these kind of problems!.. Thanks so much.
