Tracks in CINELERRA-GG either contain audio or video. There is no special
designation for tracks other than the type of media they contain.
When you create a new project, it contains three default tracks: one
video track and two audio tracks. You can still add and delete
tracks from the menus. The Tracks menu contains a number of options
for dealing with multiple tracks simultaneously. Each track itself
has a popup menu which affects one track.
Operations in the Tracks pulldown affect only tracks which
- Move tracks up | Move tracks down
- shift all the armed
tracks up or down the stack.
- Roll tracks up | Roll tracks down
- wheel motion of the tracks up or down.
- Delete tracks
- deletes the armed tracks.
- Delete first track
- deletes the first track, whether it is armed or not.
- Delete last track
- deletes the last track, whether it is
armed or not.
- Concatenate tracks
- operation copies all the assets of
every disarmed but playable track and concatenates it by pasting
those assets at the end of the first set of armed tracks. They are
pasted one after the other, keeping the same order they have on the
stack. If there are two armed tracks followed by two disarmed
tracks, the concatenate operation copies the assets of the two
disarmed tracks and pastes them after the assets of the two armed
tracks. If there are three disarmed tracks instead, the assets of
two tracks are pasted after the assets of the armed tracks and the
assets of the third track are pasted at the end of the first armed
track. The destination track wraps around until all the disarmed
tracks are concatenated. Disarmed tracks that are not playable are
- Align timecodes
- see Align Timecodes
- Append to project
- allows for creating new tracks after
any existing tracks.
- Add subttl
- will add a track for subtitles at the top of
the other tracks.
The Audio and Video pulldowns each contain an
option to add a track of their specific type. In the case of audio,
the new track is put on the bottom of the timeline and the output
channel of the audio track is incremented by one. In the case of
video, the new track is put on the top of the timeline. This way,
video has a natural compositing order. New video tracks are overlaid
on top of old tracks.
