Stacked Clips in Adobe Rush

Hey everyone, 

 

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? 

 

and lastly 

 

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. 

 

Troy

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!

Ok I'll take a look at your tutorials soon, thanks Steve. I'm referring to when you have clips on more than one row. For example there are three tracks (rows) of clips. It seems that clips that are directly above the clips on the bottom row are somehow connected. You can see this with orange lines.

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.

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.

I'm experiencing the same issue with separate clips somehow getting nested / linked / stacked. I don't want this! How do you unlink them?? See attached video.

SOLVED!

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,
