I'm wondering what the handles provide that wouldn't be more simply and elegantly provided by a redesigned trim cursor (when hovering over event edges). Have I missed something? On a related note, I preferred the pre-VP16-style trim cursor to the one in VP16-18. It was more obvious which side of "the join" you were over.
No more fiddling and faffing around at the Event Edges, trying to Grip the Event's Start or Finish - we now have these:
How many years has this taken? Well done Team-Vegas!
U can thank ME!!! I kept harping about UI niggling frustrations;
Note to Gary: that is a START, it will sell you more programs than Piccasso emulations,
(OK, I don't know if I'm as big a thorn in Gary's side as I say, [he said he was listening to 'us'] but dammit, this is what brings the program down, day to day small stuff, e.g.: love handles MIA)......
I've noticed that turning them on makes the "target zone" wider (for the whole height of the event), which generally reduces fiddliness. But the target zone could have been widened without adding the handles. I suppose the handles are useful in showing you what to aim at.
This feature was added as part of VEGAS Movie Studio 17 (being brought back to life after their brief appearance in VMS 13). We were debating on whether to add it to VP 18 or not as we felt that VP users might find the handles a bit annoying. The decision was made to add them but to leave them off by default for now. We will see what the overall reaction to them was and if it is positive, we may turn them on by default in a future version.
Thank you for the feedback. It is somewhat surprising that such a small feature that I spent about an hour to work on gets this much attention.
@aboammar - What did you find? Read my post above.
@EricLNZ told me how to enable the Event Handle and that's from the Event Hamburger. Rolling onto the Event as you suggested did not reveal the handle because this new feature is not enabled by default.
