Is it possible compare (or rather just to playback) two different versions of a clip side by side,
which do reside in different reels? In addition it would be great if the reply-speed could be adjusted:)
Thank’s a lot!
Of course that does only make sense if the two version are fairly similar:)
I could have sworn there was a way to sync the source and sequence monitors when in src-seq playback mode but all I can remember is that if you press shift-ctrl (flame hotkeys) while scrubbing you will gang the source and sequence monitors together.
If I had to compare two clips, I’d put them both in the the same timeline, designate one as the Primary and one as the Secondary. Once they’re designated, you have all sorts of compare methods and whatever modifications are done in the timeline, you’ll see in the viewer. Side by Side is a nice view option. You can get a movable split bar, difference mode. Lotsa options.
If they have to be in different reels, Open as Sequence for one of them and select the second one. Then go to the two up view of the viewer, also called Source-Sequence (opt-2). Then make sure both are selected in the list of clips and use the Gang command (Space-G). They will both play at the same time.
space-g doesn’t start the playback, it essentially marks the two selected clips as ganged together so that after hitting space-g you can then scrub through them and play them and they will stay synced. Just tested it on my mac system and it does work there. Note that dual playback may or may not work, depending on the speed of your array (I believe).
Hmmm…It looks like you’re doing everything right. Just to double check as I can’t see when you’re hitting space-g, you selected both clips in the library and then hit space-g and then scrub/play, correct?
After pressing space-g the colour of the describing text of the clips (e.g. rec709) did change to green.
After hitting play in the two-player view, and switching back to Timeline the colour of that text switched back to yellow (I replaced the original video with v2 showing this colour switch back:)
Just to verify, I assume you’re using the flame hotkeys, not smoke?
When I have two clips selected and then gang them (using space-g) they stay ganged together, even if I leave the src-req view or select another clip,so much so that the icon will update in list view if I move around in the sequence. They don’t become un-ganged until I hit option-space-g while both clips are selected. The ganged clips does turn green if you’re in list view. Note: you can gang more than two clips together.
Hi! Yes, I’d add another version layer and place the clip/sequence on the second layer. Then right click right next to the “P” and the item a the top of the dropdown is “Set as Secondary Tack”. Do that! It’ll get a little black “S” in the box to the left of the clips. Then in the view options, use one of the options to show you both simultaneously.
This is a pretty good video that’ll show you all this stuff!
