Do you think this happened?
I intentionally set my playhead to :09 (9 frames), and dragged the audio from Source viewer to the timeline and letting it snap to the playhead instead of keep going and snapping to the start.
Without screen shots, or any more information it’s hard to know what actually happened. I can’t reproduce the bug with Shotcut version 18.09.16 64-bit.
I haven’t dragged the audio to the timeline yet. When I open it and run it from the source viewer, it still starts at 9 seconds but records it as the start (0 seconds) the full length of the audio clip is correct. The audio clip last about 32 seconds. It somehow fast forward my clip and record the 9 second time as the start as it’s very evident that my audio clip ends at 20 seconds but still the audio is still running and will end at 32 seconds.
That’s very odd.
