HF3 Trimmer issues

edited November 2014 in Express Support

Hello. First off, I just want to say that I could not be more excited for HF3, and I can't wait to learn all of it's new features. I've been a fan of FXhome since VisionLab Studio.

With that said, within minutes of trying out HF3 for the first time I've already run into a couple "minor" issues which I hope could be fixed in a future update.

The first one I noticed is that there is no way to use the trimmer based on a timecode alone. In HF2, the time at which the playhead currently rested at was displayed, making it possible to scrub through a long video file to find the pre-determined time to set in/out points at. I see no such option in HF3, and that makes it impossible to edit the sort of videos I am currently working on. Since the timecodes for the in/out points are already displayed to the left and right of the trimmer's timeline, it would be awesome if these could be double-clicked in order to manually select the exact time desired.

The other thing I noticed is that the space key seems to have no effect in terms of playing/pausing the viewer while the viewer is floating, unless the window itself is first clicked. This doesn't seem to be the case in HF2 so I assume this is a bug of some sort.

Thanks for taking the time to read my post. As stated above, I could not be happier about HF3, and look forward to any future updates you guys may put out.

    Firstly, thanks for the feedback, the Trimmer is something that does need tweaking a little. But things are already being discussed as to how it can be improved, I do like your idea of the Timecode being editable & this has been suggested internally already. If you have any further suggestions do let us know. :)

    Your second point does feel like a bug & I have raised this to be looked at. Thanks again for your feedback.
