What does it do?
It lets you route your incoming (source) A/V tracks onto the timeline. For example, let's say you want your source video to appear on V3 on and your source audio to appear on A5 and A6. you simple move the "V1" icon on the left(source) up to the "V3" icon on the right (timeline) and the "A1" and "A2" icons on the left to the "A5" and "A6" icons on the right, respectively.
Or, let's say you just want video from your source but no audio. Simply click on the source (left) "A1" and "A2" icons and they will separate from the icons on the right. This will make it so only "V1" will be edited into the timeline.
I still don't get it.
What source? What destination? What changes when I move theese things around? It doesn't seem like anything changes when I move theese things.
A1 and A2 are the Left and Right channels of the audio in your video clip. When you move them around, you are basically moving the channels to which destination track you are laying down.
So when I do this:
It basicaly changes left chanel to right and right chanel to left. Right?
No. It just moves the A1 channel onto a different track in the timeline. To reverse stereo, you need to open up the video clip in the viewer and set the panning left or right.
However, I still don't get it. (Or maybe I do, but I don't see where I can use this).
Can someone give me a link to a tutorial or something.
P.S. Sorry for being annoying.
You'll get it after editing a bit more. You may not find it useful for stereo pair video clips but they become important when working with dual channel video clips.
A tutorial of target tracks here.
I get it now
It works only when you drag clips to the canvas but not with timeline editing.
Thank You, Lacero & others.
