I thought about a new feature that could be added for Shotcut’s timeline. When you place the mouse on an empty space in the timeline where they are clips to the left and/or right and right click the “Remove” option comes up. How about adding right under “Remove” an option called something like “Move To Playhead”?
The way that this would work is that the selected clip would move to wherever the playhead is currently positioned at. So if you highlight a clip, then place the playhead someways away from the clip to its left and select “Move To Playhead” then the clip will move and stop where the playhead is. If the playhead is placed anywhere at the highlighted clip’s right side, then the clip moves towards the right up to the playhead. If this can be added then it’d be nice to also have this work in conjunction with the “Ripple All Tracks” option to move many clips at one time up to a specific desired location in the timeline whether that be to the left or the right side.
As of now, moving clips around like this can be done either by manually moving them or by creating a “dummy clip” as suggested in this thread. My suggestion would skip all of that extra work and be a real time saver during the workflow.
What do you think?
