Anyone else having problems when trying to select portions of a clip for import? This use to work in the same way you'd select a portion of a clip in the Event browser, In and Out Points etc. I may have already had an issue with this in 10.0.7. I just upgraded to 10.0.8. Same problem.


I've got some huge takes I'd only like to select tiny portions of for import.





Mac OS X (10.6.8), Cinema Display

    Selections of clips are only available in the camera import function, not in the file import function. The file import function is an extension of the OS and only allows the import of complete files. Post screen shots of what you're seeing and explain what you're doing. There has been no change in 10.0.8 to importing. It's the same since 10.0.6.

    It doesn't have to be from your camera; it has to be using the camera import function from a camera folder structure or archive.


    Tell me when you open a Word document, how do you open just the third, sixth, and eighth paragraphs?


    If you're opening the material from a camera archive using the camera import function, you must make a copy of the media. Because of this you have access to functions that allow you to selectively copy media, but to do that you have to use the camera import function, which I'm sure you can do with media from your Canon camera.
