Locked Playhead on Edit

PostMon Aug 12, 2019 2:46 pm

There are times when it would be desirable to lock the Playhead and constantly scroll the timeline.

Cut page can do it. How about adding this to Timeline View Option on the Edit page?

The lock would occur wherever the playhead is when the lock is engaged.

I would also love this. I was looking for it today. I'm not a fan of the Cut page so it would be great to have this in Edit as well.

Hi,

coming from this post:
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=74789

I wished it was possible to lock the playhead in the center of the timeline (while the clips passes underneath). I am wasting too much time with adjusting and zooming the view of the timline.

Need to lock play head in the middle on the EDIT page, please. Too much time is wasted looking for previous and next areas.

Yes please! +1 This would be very helpful. Hopefully in the next version we'll have a fixed playhead option on the Edit page.

What do you guys think about combining this idea with the new Detail Zoom option in 16.1.2. If you chose that Zoom level, the playhead automatically locks to center. Change the zoom level in anyway (Custom) and the playhead unlocks.

Thoughts?

I usually work in commercials, so the fixed playhead in the Edit page wasn't really something I ever longed for.

But right now, I'm conforming a 2.5 hour feature film. (imported from Avid), and I only now understand why so many people prefer a fixed, centered playhead for some things. Conforming a longform timeline to a reference movie (in Difference Mode) is one of the scenarios when a fixed playhead would be really useful.
