Change timer start position on track 2


Recommended Posts

By dragging the bracket on the left to the right I want to change the start position of a timer effect to about 12 second after the start of the sequence.

But When I do this just cut of a piece at the end of track 2 and keeps the same start position.

How do I disable this auto ripple effect?

Hi

Dragging the bracket to the right extends the stopwatch duration. e.g. Timer clip below plays from 0 to 20 seconds..

Dragging the end out to the 30 mark and the Stopwatch plays 0 to 30 seconds .....

In both of these the stopwatch starts from 0 at beginning of timeline. To move the timer along the track and retain the selected duration.....

  • Press the Alt Key and left click the stopwatch clip
  • Drag the stopwatch clip  along the track so it starts from 0 at the required position.

There are other ways of doing this but this is probably the most logical.

I was not able to drag the start point to the right, it only made the stopwatch clip shorter at the end.

I had to pickup the whole clip and move it to the right. After that I could drag the staring position to the position I wanted.

This behaviour was a bit odd.

Hi

If the stopwatch is positioned at the start of the timeline then you can grab the white block at the left end and drag it to the right. This shortens the duration of the timer.  It should also be possible to drag the whole timer clip right and left so it starts at a different point on the timeline. I think it might be useful to just extend the animation duration to a value greater than what you want as you can then shorten directly on the timeline. I agree it sometimes behaves a bit oddly.

There is a difference in the behaviour if the clip is at the start of the video sequence or somewhere else,

At the start of the sequence I can not move the bracket on the left side to the right and make the clip start later in the time line. It shortens the clip at the right end. Place the clip anywhere else and it works

HI

Dragging the left block to the right won't alter the start time, This will remain at 0. Dragging the block to the right shortens the duration. (Instead of being 0 - 30 it becomes for example 0 - 20. It would be the same if you dragged the right hand block to the left.

Grabbing the body of the clip and dragging should shift the whole clip to a new timeline position. You can set the start time of the stopwatch in the Edit Stopwatch window...
