Hey Tamas,

Far left of the Timeline, highlight the V1 track so that the "V1" box turns blue, just like the A1 box below it. This function is called "Source Patching."

It is the step you need to make sure of before dragging. Now you know! I call it, "Look before you leap." 🙂  

How did it happen? Patching is supposed to be automatic, however, I noticed these buttons can get "unpatched" when clicking on certain kinds of media derived from gaming streams, webcam video, etc. so if you edit that kind of stuff, you really have to keep this step in mind. Cool? Look before you leap!

Why Source Patching is even a thing? It is set up this way for editing audio only or video only edits. Sometimes you want to be able to do that. You can also edit into the timeline with two methods: insert and overwrite. By default, dragging is an Overwrite edit. An Insert Edit is for when you wish to place a clip between two existing clips, usually.

Thanks,
Kevin
