I'm new to video editing, and I don't understand how the stacked clips work in Adobe Rush. Is there a way to remove the connection? When I try and move a clip that seems to be attached (stacked) to other clips (see the little orange lines), it won't move or it will move a bunch of other clips as well.
1) How are clips bunched together ie stacked?
2) Is there a way to remove these stacks, so that certain clips can be moved/removed etc independently?
3) When I move a clip in between two existing clips, instead of moving all the clips further out in the timeline, it seems to just delete footage from the clip I'm dropping the new clip over. Is there a way to avoid this?
Thank you for the help! Overall Rush is a pretty rad way to create quick edited videos.
I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "stacked clips". But I'll be uploading a series of Basic Training tutorials for Premiere Rush in support of my new book on Rush to YouTube in the next few days. They may answer some of your questions.
I'll let you know when the videos are up!
I know exactly what you're talking about Color Station. So far the only thing I've found that will disconnect the clips is to lock the main clip, then you can move the other ones around or delete if necessary. I don't know if this is the correct answer but it works for me.
The video layers (stacks) that you have in your image allow you to make multiple transitions or give you more potential for blending your video or add Titles or graphics to your edit - you can also MOVE/SCALE the clip in the layer above, to reveal the layer underneath. If you want to insert the deer (before/after) the eagle clip select and drag the clip down to the main video layer, Rush will move the clips out (extending the length of your project).
You can edit the duration of the new insert by sliding the large orange handles on either end of your clips. (bold orange indicates selected).
You can lock a video layer, but unless you migrate your project to PremierePro, you'll just move the individual clips around rather than doing any kind of advanced nesting.
They've fixed it! I just went on to do some editing and the linking issue has been fixed Zippity Doo Dah!!!
I'm also wondering this myself as it keeps stopping me from using Rush. I find myself in a situation where anything added above the first layout somehow becomes linked to that layer and can no longer be moved independently. How do you break the link and why does it form in the first place?
Thank you for the image paulcSkipton. Hopefully, somebody will answer this as the discussion above is unclear. Your image points out the most frustrating feature in Rush. If I am dealing with four tracks, (3 video and 1 audio) and the audio is the final track which I uploaded independently of any video while muting audio in the video tracks, the video track above the independent audio track ALWAYS links. Anything I do to that video track impacts the audio track and eliminates any video mixing I want to do with the video tracks higher in the stack. I am either missing something very obvious, or this is a serious design flaw that needs to be addressed. My vote is to lose the links.
agreed, it makes it unusable. i cant jsut edit one track without it destroying anything else that is already in the timeline.
Click in an empty portion of a track so the orange disapears. Then click on the locks of the tracks that you dont want to edit yet. Then your remaining track is no longet linked that is unlocked is no longer linked
Sorry... Then your remaining track that isnt locked is no longer linked
The default video layer is causing this linking / locking. If you drag all of your clips onto higher video layers, then you can move them all independently of one another. Notice that the default video layer is taller than the other 3 video layers.
I have this same issue with the annoying linking. I'm using 4 video layers and they all seem to be linked to the bottom layer with orange lines. I've dragged the top 3 into one layer (leaving a 2 layer gap between them and the default layer) but they're all still linked. If I delete items on the default layer, it deletes items above! This is ridiculous,
@artichoked Agreed, but if it's the main/default layer that you need to move, locking all other layers will still not allow you to move the clips down the timeline. See my video attached: The main layer in which other layers are linked to with that orange line bounces back to its original place even with everything else locked. How do I solve this or do I need to start over?
