Hello everyone, I never used the storyboard ... it's never too late. A small problem (or bug?): When I move a media in the storyboard and if I have no transitions, everything is fine. But, if I move a media on a media with transition, then a hole appears on the timeline as on the attached video.
The moved media overlaps the original media from the end of its transition.
Appears that you are not on the latest build. Need to be on build 424. When you make an edit on the main timeline, Vegas' storyboard window should turn red and you will be asked if you want to update the storyboard.
FWIW, My advice is not to work "interactively" this way, but to use storyboard to rough-out your timeline and order of clips, then "fine tune" on the normal editing timeline.
This works really well for me:
1) Organize clips, etc by "topic" bins (eg "intro")
2) Drag "topic" bin to storyboard bin area to create a named unassociated storyboard (eg "intro)
3) Order clips in the storyboard as you like
4) Move through the storyboard using the trimmer to "hover cut" in/out points and the press "A" key to add to the main timeline.
5) Fine tune, add titles, etc in the normal editing timeline.
At first, the media touch each other and I move one media and all is fine. Then, on the timeline, I move the média over the previous media as if I was doing a crossfade, and then, in the storyboard, I move a media over this one. I could have done a crossfade directly
I tried with crossfade automatic or not with an almost identical result, the two media also overlap, but then it's a crossfade.
I usually do everything from the timeline but I wanted to test the storyboard
Excuse me if I have not been clear enough; English is not my native language and I hope it is not too literary.
I will try to recap if necessary :
I put several media (5 for example) on the timeline directly or through the storyboard. Until then everything is working well.
From the timeline, I'm doing a 1-second crossfade between the "1" and "2" media.
In the storyboard, I move the media "5" so that it comes between "1" and "2"
I expect that : * Media "5" comes to be positioned in the place occupied by the media "2" and that the crossfade is now between "1" and "5", * Media "2" is moved fully (including the 1-second portion of the previous crossfade) to the right.
Whether automatic crossfade is enabled or not, whether alignment is enabled or not, automatic readjustment or not, media "5" is superimposed on media "2" from the end of the media "1" and thus at the end of the crossfade. Oddly enough, the following media (3 and 4 in this example) are correctly moved from the right duration to the right leaving a gap before them.
