I am having problems with the roll tool. I want to pull back the video from a shot over the previous shot but the roll tool doesn't do the whole thing. It leaves one frame of the previous shot. This causes a world of pain to remove. Is there something really obvious I am missing, maybe because I an AVID editor stuck in the wrong way of thinking with FCP?
Thanks for any help
I have seen this, too. My workaround is to lift the clip I want to roll above the primary storyline (CMD+ALT+UP ARROW), roll it and put it on the primary again (CMD+ALT+DOWN ARROW). Then delete the leftover audio. But I agree it is really annoying.
" I want to pull back the video from a shot over the previous shot..."
The Roll tool should do this, even if you're trying to make a whole clip disappear. ONLY as long as you have enough "handle" on the clip you're trying to extend. Could it be the clip your extending is one frame short of having enough media (handle) to cover the other clip?
