I'm editing a short movie, and there are clips that I'm considering cutting that I want to keep in place but not necessarily use. How can I deactivate a clip such that it doesn't occupy the storyline, but stays in place?
"disabling" a clip (pressing V) doesn't do that- it still remains a blank part of the timeline. "Lift from timeline" doesn't seem to accomplish that either.
Ideally, I could just leave the clips in place and disable them in a way that makes the playhead skip ahead when it reaches those clips, so that I can easily see what the movie looks like with those optional clips and without them.
Any advice is much appreciated.
