Need to reduce the tendency of the video clips to move up and when when editing in timeline
This is more of a nusence than anything else is when I'm trying to do things on the timeline like sliding edits or adding a clip etc, or even an effect like a dissolve or even color grade causes the video portion of the timeline to move up and down, how to reduce this, or lock it so it can't move until I need it to?
I run the latest Hitfilm Express 2021.2, which as you discovered has issues all its own but this has been an issue since I first downloaded Hitfilm in August (2021.1).
Computer is the Dell Optiplex 9020 with the 5470 Core i5 processor and 16G of RAM
NVIDIA Geforce 610 GT (yes, I realize this is bouncing along at the very bottom of barrel as far as minimum specs go but not the issue here)
Windows 10 Pro, V. 21HI Build # 190431 1237.
Don't recall this being an issue with 2021.1, but definitely is in 2021.2 whereby when I move a clip, the video portion where I'm dragging moved up/down and don't want it to and I'm not even touching the scroll wheel. As long as I hold down the left button this occurs until I get it in place and release the button, then it locks and I can scroll as needed. Does the same for the audio too. Very annoying and is there a way to lock it so it does not do this when shifting stuff around on the timeline?
I just did a look-see and didn't see any option that I know of for this and right now, am trying to sync up my B roll to the main footage/audio and as I move it left or right, the video portion of the timeline keeps moving up/down and at times, the B roll scoots up to video 3 and it's very, very annoying.
