Collapse all cut intervals feature

After the intervals are marked for cutting out, you will probably need to play the project to check if the start/end markers of the intervals are set right on the required frames. To do this, you can collapse all the intervals marked for deletion at once, and then play the remaining video all together.

You can collapse all intervals in several ways.

The first way: put your mouse cursor at the top of any interval selected for cutting out and right-click the button that will appear above the interval. Select the “Collapse All Fragments Marked as Cut Out” command.


The second way: right mouse click at the timeline with intervals marked for cutting out and select “Collapse All Fragments Marked as Cut Out” in the context menu.


After that you can playback all your fragments set to be saved to check your selection.

To expand the cut out fragments use “Expand All Fragments” context menu command.
