OK. I have been able to remove a split where there was no change of the image on either side. I've even wondered about being able to do that occasionally.
But back to the main need... I understand there likely are technical reasons not to merge to clips that were not originally continuous. The program has to be able to identify the frames and those come from different addresses. But it would be really useful to be able to splice or link adjacent clips so that one might move several clips at one time, or even possibly apply a filter to them. In my case, I'm trying to make the images on V2 fit the narration on V1. That means trimming a few frames here and there and moving the whole sequence to see how it falls best.
Mist some sort of splice function be possible?
