Bug Description

Hiya!

It would be nice to have support for In/Out points - similar to Cinelerra's [ ] so that one can attach effect/transition to the region between the two - the region would have to be highlighted,of course.

Moreover, having In/Out points would enable one to render just part of the highlighed region of the audio/video track.

Sincerely,
Gour

The keyboard shortcuts i and o would be needed, and maybe one for splicing. OpenShot already supports in and out points through the properties window, so hopefully it should not be too hard to implent. Along with this splicing would need to be added.

"OpenShot already supports in and out points through the properties window"

Excuse me, can you explain how? I dont see anything so.

That's not, imho, the same feature which should do "...similar to Cinelerra's [ ] so that one can attach effect/transition to the region between the two" or "would enable one to render just part of the highlighed region of the audio/video track."

I quote Gour: in/out points are useful *before* you put the clip in the timelime. After this, obvioulsy, you can use cutter tool or resize tool.

For me the best solution is the kdelive solution that is the same of FinalCut and other NLEs.
Cinerella on the other hand force you to do a "clip" and then drag the clip in the timeline, while Kdenlive makes things faster and simpler.

Rather than say like Cinelarra does it or how Kdenlive does it, some detail on how you would expect this to work might increase the chances of it getting done. I've no idea how either of those two applications implement this function, which makes it a bit tricky to replicate or improve upon what they do.

I believe here is a nice description with a screenshot:

In kdenlive there is a monitor for the project (time line monitor, if you like) and a monitor for clips. On this last monitor there are 2 buttons [ and ]. So you can define in and out points.
Done this, simply drag and drop from the clip monitor to the timeline.

To have 2 monitor is not essential however: you can use the same monitor for project and clip, depending on what you have clicked (timeline or a clip).
