Clip marking

This is probably one of those fundamentally dumb questions but is there a way to place a mark on a seperate audio and video track for the purpose of syncing them up? I use to be able to do this in Liquid and it was great for me. I know you can place a marker on the timeline in vegas but that is not what I need. I need the mark actually on the audio and video clip.

Thanks a million!

Jeff

Re: Clip marking

Add the markers in the TRIMMER and then align those markers on the TIMELINE.

Re: Clip marking

Snap offset was designed for such tasks.

From the help file:
"Each event has a snap offset flag that you can move along the event's length to fine-tune where snapping will occur. To adjust the flag, drag the white triangle in the lower-left corner of the event. A ToolTip displays the amount of offset."

Re: Clip marking

After a decade of using Vegas I finally learned how to put regions on clips rather than on the timeline, so that they move with the event! I don't recall any occasion where I have ever used the trimmer but I can see it's going to be a frequently used tool from now on. Thank you Edward!

Re: Clip marking

Glad I could help, Ian. I almost never use the trimmer. But it does have a few uses and for those few times I need it, I use it. For normal cutting, I just drop everything on the timeline and cut away.

If you have markers/regions on the clip and you want to move them to the timeline too, you can run the "Promote Markers" script.

Same here. Until now I could never see the point of the trimmer! Thanks again.
