Looks interesting. But Iā€™m still confused! What happens after I select a clip or group of clips? Why do I want to select a clip or group of clips? :slight_smile:

There are a few supported actions for multiple selection and the forthcoming group feature:

  • Copy
  • Cut
  • Lift
  • Move to another place in the Timeline
  • Ripple Delete
  • Split (coming in version 24.01)
