Group Settings

Barry W. Hull wrote on 2/10/2014, 10:22 AM
On the timeline when I move a video clip, it no longer moves the audio with it. (This is NOT an Ignore Even Groupings issue.)

I think I did something with the Group command (which I use often) of a clip, and now it seems I have lost the entire Group settings of the entire VEG file, no longer is any video “connected” to any audio.

Does anyone know how to “reconnect” video/audio so that I am not forced to either select both video and audio, or drag them one at a time? This is wasting a lot of time.

To clarify, I know I can recreate the grouped audio and video by going to each clip one at a time, but I am hoping there is a way to "reconnect" the clips in mass, back to the way they were when they were brought onto the timeline.

Something tells me I'm out of luck, but hoping.

I haven't ever found a way to do a mass regrouping if the undo buffer has been cleared by closing and reopening the project.

Do you have any autosaved .bak files of the project? If so, is it easier to recreate edits done since the autosave than regroup the whole project?

Ah yes, autosaved, I'll give it a try, thanks.

The undo was long gone, didn't realize what I had done until it was too late.

A complete un-grouping of the VEG file might be one of those items that asks, "Are you sure?" before you click the button.

I use a couple of scripts that will regroup events from either 2 or 3 tracks. If anyone is interested, I can put them on Dropbox.
