Making cuts creates a gap on backing track and already synchronized clips!

Hi all, I am just a beginner, making my first music video. I have the backing track all the way down, then three sung versions, which I synchronized and then one on 4 I have just clips with general footage which I needed to make cuts on. All seemed to go well, I was very careful to see that it was highlighted before I made any cuts and that the selection hadn't jumped down, saw each clip I deleted disappear, draged the left over bit back, then went through it, made a few more cuts but at the end I noticed that the clips down to the backing track all had a big gap in the middle, What happened and how can I prevent it from happening? This ended up costing my husband a lot of time to correct (it was far too complicated for me to do). I need you help......

It sounds like you're saying that the program is not deleting and closing the gap as you're editing.

 

If that's the case, post a screen capture showing all of the video and audio you have on the timeline. Once we see it we'll better be able to make some recommendations.

Sorry if I didn't explain well, Steve.... there is nothing wrong when I cut the video. The gap is not closed but I close it (I didn't know that the programme would close the gaps). Yes, I should have made a screen shot, sorry, forgot! Will, if this happens again. No, what happened is that the clips I was working on, all on the same level 4, were fine, cuts done, all well, but then, when we looked at 3, 2, 1 and backing track, all had a huge gap in the middle, while they were all supposed to be one length and all was synchronized and all. My husband managed to save it, with quite a bit of work and it has happened to him occasionally before, we just don't know why! When I made cuts on the top one it all seemed to go so well....................... the bits I didn't want disappeared, so all seemed to be well.
