Using Connected Segments to Mimic Link BFX

Hi. This is a question specifically for @fredwarren regarding the Reverse user group, although if anyone else has the answer, that works too. I was asking for a mimic link for BFXs and you showed a neat way to do so with connected segments, however I’m having problems recreating what you did.

Ah yeh that’s it cheers guys.

Interesting. That was my first impression as well, but when I tested it before replying, I had no issues making a connection without opening the clip as a sequence reel. That only seems to have an effect if there is only one segment in the clip.
