Sync-Locked Track Groups - Time Shifting

Time shifting operations on Sync-Locked Track Groups

  • Tracks > Align Tracks: All of the "Align Tracks" commands (with the exception of the "Align Tracks Together" command) will move all tracks in a group by the same amount, even if this means pushing the start(s) of some track(s) before zero on the timeline. By its nature the Align Tracks Together command cannot respect sync-lock since its job is to align the selected tracks so they all start at the same point on the timeline.
  • Time Shift Tool: Using the Time Shift tool on any audio track in a Sync-Locked Track Group will move all clips in all audio tracks, and will move any Label Track defining the Group, even if none of the tracks are selected. However a clip will not move unless it overlaps with at least one other clip above or below. If you want non-overlapping clips to move too, select over all clips you want to move then drag from inside the selection.

Example-1: Align with Cursor

Before Tracks > Align Tracks > Align with Cursor

After Tracks > Align Tracks > Align with Cursor

Result: The selected track is moved so the start of the track aligns with the cursor.
The Sync-Locked track moves by the same amount.
