Title: Better timeline / cut management
Post by: p3trus on May 24, 2017, 10:17:06 AM
Hi there,
for complex cutting, eg half a dozen of commercial blocks from a recording or creating a sampler from various source files I still have to use another video editor because of its better handling of cuts. (The other program is named Cuttermaran and is fairly old and abandoned...)

My idea / wish for ADM would be kind of Cuttermaran's cut handling - basically it's just a graphic representation of the cuts, ie all the adm.addSegment(...) entries from the in-memory script when editing with some big advantages:
I know it's some work to do, but it would make editing with ADM a lot more comfortable.

See the attached screenshot from Cuttermaran for an idea how it looks (example is with one source file only, but it works fine with more of them, too.
On top is the main timeline, below is an interactive table with the individual cuts.
