I need to replace two audio files in clips in an audio montage of about 40 little pieces in total. (The montage already contains “CD” markers at the start and end of each clip, created by applying the CD Wizard function.)
The problem ist that the two new versions are longer than the corresponding old audio files. I expected WL9 to adjust the length of the clips automatically, while, at the same time and also automatically, kicking / pushing markers (clip start & end) and following clips to the right so that the pause of 2 seconds between the tracks remains identic as well.
What happened instead was that WL keeps the length of the edited clip untouched so that it still matches the length of the old audio file. So the music / new file ends abruptly at the end of the clip. The rest is missing. When trimming the clip’s end, the missing part of the music reappears, but then WL produces a crossfade with the follwowing clip. The markers and the following clips stay where they were.
Both WL 7 & 9 showed the same behaviour. In V 9, in “preferences - audiomontage”, I ticked the box where it says that when replacing audio in a clip, the following clips should be pushed to the right. Still the same, even after closing and restarting the application.
Any ideas of what I am doing wrong here…?
Any help is appreciated.
