Summary: git master:2016-09-15: Possible data loss when
applying clip job to multiple clips
Platform: Compiled Sources
Component: User Interface
So, I have this bunch of clips that I want to slow down by exactly the same
I highlight all the clips I want to slow down, right-click and select the speed
This method worked fine for adding proxies of the .mlt files I made before, so
Anyways, a dialog pops up, saying that the intended output files exist, and as
I had been creating .mlt files for some of the clips I did not read the dialog
all that closely, and I just blindly clicked "overwrite". After several dialogs
pops up, I realize I did not make that many .mlt files, and re-read the dialog
that pops up.
Apparently, rather than making an .mlt file as output, the clip job was
overwriting the original clips. This does not happen when just one clip is
So, my own boneheadedness caused me some data loss, but I had the source files
backed up anyways, so not too bad.
However, the clip job should be making .mlt files and not be trying to
overwrite the originals in all cases.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select multiple clips in project bin
2.Right click and select clip jobs and "duplicate and change speed"
3.Set the desired speed.
4. Dialog pops up, saying that the files already exist
By selecting multiple clip jobs the default output is not an .mlt file anymore,
but the source file.
If clicking overwrite on the dialog the original file is overwritten by a .mlt
file that points to itself.
Multiple .mlt files to be created with the effect applied inside.
It's a bit of a corner case, but should be an easy fix.
