Hi,

Ive been tearing my hair out over this one as I can't seem to work out how to do it.

I have a number of clips aranged alternately on Video 1A and Video 1B with appropriate transitions between each. Now because my girlfriends parents want a copy I have to remove a couple of clips (her smoking etc.!!) my problem is if I remove a clip from say Video 1A I don't want to have to go all the way along swapping the clips from 1A to 1B and vica versa so that everything is back to alternating with transitions.

Have I done something wrong in my setup initially, i.e. is there a better way to do this so I don't have such a problem in the future?

My only thoughts so far for a quick fix is to render the first part as a complete movie then the second and the put them together in a new project but that seems a bit extreme.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Not sure if i quite follow you but...

If I understand you correctly your problem is that you want to remove ONE of the clips in a transition leaving you with two clips side-by-side on track A (or B).

To make a new transisition between the two clips, just cut the left-hand clip around the middle and move one of the halfs to the other track, so that you can make a new transition.

Hope this helps...

Yep that's exactly right and that sounds like a perfectly simple solution.

Cheers :)
