Hello,

This might be a newbie question, but once I have a clip in the timeline, is there anyway to open it back in the preview window. For example, to view the start and end timecodes in the original clip?

Thanks!

If you only want to see the timecode of the clip segment used, you can simply click on the small triangle/arrow where the sequence timecode is displayed by default, and view or select "Primary T/C".

Alternatively, you can also see the source tile synchronized in the "Recent > Current" filter, and drag it into the Source Viewer if necessary.
This can also be done with keyboard shortcuts.
Here's a very old tutorial that is nearly the same as today's flexible layout:

Additionally, the command 'Pop out original' (N-key), executed with focus on the timeline in EDIT mode, shows the media at playhead position in 'Filters.Recent' of 'Project Contents'. From there you can open it in the source viewer.

Sometimes it may be useful to have a continuous display of timecode and other metadata.

My proposal: The experienced, in particular all moderators, should always use the most recent beta build of Lightworks. This would increase the chance to detect the unexpected earlier.

That is an absolutely absurd suggestion. Most moderators here are using this software to earn their living. Speaking for myself, there is absolutely no way that I would use beta software in a commercial project. Apart from anything else if an unexpected bug jeopardised a delivery it could result in anything from loss of a valued client to a lawsuit.

How true.
I am using the latest beta at the present time. Looking at my time sheet it is apparent how much time I have wasted due to bugs and un-wanted feature. I have reported 5 or 6 so far.

I am working on a small project, 2 cameras, approx 12 hours of videos each. Fortunately this is a learning video broken into numerous portions with each portion being between 3 and 10 minutes long, with only 1 or 2 clips released each week. I an not pressed for time.

I have archive each clip as I work on it and the project, so if something goes wrong I won't be jumping off the nearest bridge.

If I was pushed for time I wouldn't touch the beta version, since I am not this is a good way to help test it.
Now where did I put that whiskey?
