In Movie Studio 13, where is the control to ignore event grouping so that audio or video segments of events can be edited separately. I can't find it and the keyboard shortcut listed in the help menu doesn't work.
Some of the controls are now in the Config button below the timeline.
But the shortcut seems to work here in my MS Platinum 13.
And if you select Ignore Event Grouping in Options, it gets selected in Config
and vice versa.
You seem to be using a trial version of Movie Studio 13 (not MS Platinum 13 that I assumed), which is way too limited and lacks too many features.
If the reset I suggested in the other thread does not help, forget the basic version and test the MS Platinum 13 trial.
I have to admit I never had a "30-day Trial"
I'd read comments on v10 being easy to use and the expensive-version came with a VAAST Tutorial DVD ( although not aimed at folks that didn't know the Interface ! ).
So, I'm wondering if the "Trial" should be more of a hand-holding exercise, to get potential Buyers to buy the "most-expensive" version (( That's good Sales technique )). Rather than be suited to Editing a seriously-long Video?
It should be possible to assess the User Hardware and Rendering, as well as help the potential Buyer to set-up their Hard-drives, for:-
+ Unedited Files
+ Recorded Voice-overs ( using SMS Timeline )
+ Rendered movies.
Even now that I'm on v12, I'm unclear, as the software has an odd habit of returning to previously-assigned drives/locations to Place / Source the files I need.
Can't disagree with you vkmast, but you moved to say that OP's issue may be using a "Trial version".
I was suggesting that Sony/Magix should make clear Trial Versions are for relatively short movies to check if the PC / Hardware suited the software -AND- importantly that Newbees could follow the Excellent Tutorials . . . esp "Show Me How", which is probably worth the asking price Magix is paying !
you seem to have totally misread/misunderstood my post.
I "moved to say" "using a trial version "
Using the trial version as such is not the issue as these trials are fully working versions and not only "for relatively short movies". The issue is that MS 13 is "way too limited and lacks too many features" that MS Platinum 13 has. The topic of this thread seems to be one of those missing features as the MS 13 Application Help does not even have the section on it that MS Platinum 13 has. There's no Config button on the Editing Toolbar either as the OP mentions.
And I wonder what "asking price Magix is paying"?
>>>since I'm using a sample version of Version 13, is it possible that you can't ignore event grouping unless you buy the final version.<<<
As you can gather from the above, the "sample" version is the same as the "final" version.
The issue is that MS 13 and MS Platinum 13 are not the same.
IIRC, the MSP 13 trial allows you to use the Advanced Edit mode which has all the features available.
