Curious trimmer behaviour

Former user wrote on 3/28/2020, 11:50 AM

I am still using V12, (can't afford to upgrade and haven't found a reason to yet) and I have been using Vegas since V2, but I never noticed this before.

If you open a clip from the media pool in Trimmer, you can open another project and the clip is still in the trimmer. You can then trim it and use it in the new project without having to import it as media. Not sure how useful this is in normal circumstances but I found it curious. Does it still do this in V17?

@Former user - You’re speaking of Trimmer History? Yes?

I haven't tried trimmer history per se. I had left a clip open in the trimmer and opened a previous project and noticed the clip was still in the trimmer window. I then trimmed a piece from it and placed it on the timeline. It has probably always worked this way, I just never noticed it before.

LIke I said, it might have been there all along, I never notice and never read that part of the manual. :)

@Grazie ... a truly magnificent and perfect metaphor.

@Dexcon - Thank you for the acknowledgement 🙏 . I do try. Many would even say I’m very “trying”.
