Moving a Clip to a New Track

Test Clips can be moved from one track to another by simple drag and drop.

Changing Test Clip Start Offset

Within timed bands, the start offset of a test clip can be changed using drag and drop. Additionally, the start offset can be changed in the lower panel of the Composition Editor.

    1. Select the test clip whose start offset you want to change.
    2. Select the Properties tab in the lower panel of the Composition Editor. Ensure that the clip is selected in the tree and the General tab is showing.

You will then see an input box labeled Start Offset. After you update the value, press the Enter key to make the start offset change.

 

Note that, in sequenced bands, these options do not appear since test clips play to completion before the next test clip begins to play.

Changing Test Clip Duration

The playback duration of an Evenly Timed test clip can be changed using drag and drop. Mouse over the right-most edge of the test clip until the cursor becomes the resize icon. Single-click the right-most edge and drag the mouse to the left to shorten the test clip playback, or to the right to lengthen.

Additionally, for both a Manually Timed and an Evenly Timed Test Clip, the duration can be changed in the lower panel of the Composition Editor. Select the test clip you want to change by single-clicking it. Select the Properties tab in the lower panel of the Composition Editor. For an Evenly Timed Test Clip, you will also see input boxes labeled Duration and Start Interval. After you update the value, press the Enter key to change the duration.

Changing the duration of a non-sequenced test clip causes the timing of the clip elements inside of it to be adjusted proportionally. Increasing the duration causes the clip elements to be spaced out farther apart in time, while decreasing the duration causes their timing to be compressed.
