TIMELINE PANE OVERLAPS CONTENTS & SEQUENCE PANE 1 week ago #208957

Hi. My lightworks layout is such that my timeline pane is below both my contents pane (left) & sequence pane (right). As I add tracks (whether video, FX or audio), the timeline pane shifts up on the screen with each additional track until it starts overlapping the 2 panes above. This is a little frustrating because it blocks out the "in" & "out" tool set below the preview window in the sequencer. This seems to only occur in the "Edit" tab. If I switch to VFX, Audio or Log, then I can access that toolset at the bottom of the sequence pane. Shouldn't the timeline have be a scrollbar that appears (vertical scroll) if there are too many tracks? Why does the pane increase in size physically, so that it overlaps other pane on the screen?

This is the case in the next Lightworks version, which is still in the beta phase (currently not stable, especially depending on the media used).

In the meantime you can use the flexible layout for complex timelines.

This is a known issue that has been fixed in the V14.6 beta, which has a scroll bar. If you wish to continue using v14.5, the flexible layout allows you to use a lot more tracks.

Hello,

I would think that's a known issue.

I'd suggest installing most recent V14.6 beta. The issue you show is assumed to be fixed. However it's a beta release and might show other issues, but regarding that the first beta has been released 5 months ago the risk shouldn't be that high, I think.

As a matter of interest what version of Lightworks do you run and what is the display resolution?

Thanks for your quick reply. How do I activate flexible layouts?

On the start screen from 'System Settings >> User Interface >> Project layout'

However, why not giving V14.6 beta a try? You can even install it sided by side with your current version.

The flexible layout is the classical Lightworks UI, which you probably used in the past.

Awesome thanks!!! I'll try this for a bit. I freaked out momentarily because it didn't open with my current sequence that I was busy with. Manage to find it after a small search.
