I was experiencing crashes while cutting and pasting clips in the multiple-track mode, but I haven’t reproduced it consistently. This problem looks benign and non-critical, but can be related.
Lifting a clip doesn’t cause this problem. The empty track leaves something that acts like an edge of a clip at 00:00:00:01, which looks to me like a normal and intended outcome.
Steps to reproduce:
- Launch Shotcut.
- Open a video or image.
- Create two clips from the video or image. Let’s call them A and B.
- Place them in the Timeline.
- Select Add Video Track from the timeline toolbar menu to add another track.
- Drag and drop A on V2. Leave some empty space between A and B, which are on seprete tracks now.
- Highlight B.
- Cut or ripple-delete B by clicking the toolbar button or pressing the shortcut.
- The playhead don’t move to the right edge of A and gets stuck at where the left edge of B used to be.
- Paste a clip from the source to the now empty track V1. You can also drag and drop a clip from the source after enabling Ripple Trim and Drop. Focus moves to V1, and the clip on it gets highlighted.
- Right click on the empty space located after the clip you just pasted. Remove menu item appears.
There is something that acts as an edge of a clip on V1.
a) Only teseted in Windows 7 64bit.
b) This happens in 18.08.14 and 18.03.06. I’m presumming that all the version between and eariler versions have this issue.
