So i am editing really small clips, and there so small i cant right click them, how can i stretch the timeline to make them bigger?
Down at the bottom, beneath the timeline is a slider. It is likely all the way to the left. Just click on it and slide it to the right to zoom in on the timeline.
You can also press CTRL key and use the mouse wheel on the timeline to zoom (ALT key to move it sidewards).
@Stepham huh. Over three years and I didn't know CTRL+Mouse Wheel=Timeline zoom.
O.o you can do that?!?
Its like a standard shortcut for this sort of control. Hitfilm not using it would have be rated as a bug by me
@Stepham I am primarily a Vegas Editor where timeline zoom is mouse wheel, no modifier keys.
Which also means I usually agree with requests for more hotkeys in the wishlist, but my preferred binding would be different. And FCPX users have their own preferred binds.
@Triem23Of course one would prefer different defaults. But look at webbrowsers, for example. This is where the CTRL+wheel = zoom shortcut originated from as far as I remember since the wheel without modifier is most likely already bound to something else. Plain scrolling, for example. So I guess the CTRL+wheel = zoom is nowadays more of a general standard as opposed to a software specific thing.
But talking about that I would prefer the wheel without modifier to move the playhead through the timeline and could do well without the ALT modifier in this case.
It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
