    I'm making a video where I need to have the whole music track open first, and then I can stick in clip to match up with different bits in the song. Is this possible?
    I suppose it's a bit like making a music video. If there's nothing in the project box bit and I grab and drop a track it just stays in a tiny clip that i can't do anything with. It would be so much easier if I could stretch that box to have the whole song available to hear and drop clips where I want them.
    Anyone know how to do this or anything that would help??

    Do you just want black on the screen otherwise? If so, then you could use a Text overlay, with overlay turned off (black) and set the text color to black, set the length to the length of the song, then insert clips where you want, and remove the un-needed text clips at the end.
