Blender Quickie Question...


I am leanring Video Editing in Blender. When one first adds the film strip in the Video Sequence Editor it shows the stip really big, if I add more then one strip even. After I set it to home to show the entire strip.

they all become really small, How do I increace it back the the large size stirips?

I've tried the 'B' button + shift + right-click mouse Select area. didn't work

I tired the emulate numberPad in prefferences. they give me no effect when I press 1-0 that the manual said. I can move it all around, but I cannot get the strips to go back to large strips that I can see prior to me hitting the 'home' button to get it to show all the stips full length.

Quote:
Adjusting the View

Use these shortcuts to adjust the sequence area of the VSE: Pan MMB Zoom Wheel Vertical Scroll use Shift-Wheel, or drag on the left scroll bar. Horizontal Scroll use Ctrl-Wheel, or drag on the lower scroll bar. Scale View Vertically, drag on the circles on the vertical scroll bar. Scale View Horizontally, drag on the circles on the horizontal scroll bar.

As usual, the View Menu controls what and how you view in the workspace.

Properties Panel
The Properties Panel contains options for the way the preview is displayed.
View all Sequences Home
Zooms the display to show all strips.
Show Preview 1:1 Numpad1
Resizes preview to a 1:1 scale (actual size).
View Selected NumpadPeriod
Zooms in the display to fit only the selected strips

I tried using Blender for a few days but didn't stay with it.

Try these links:-

https://www.blender.org/manual/edito...cer/usage.html
http://blender.stackexchange.com/que...equence-editor

Resizing Clips is close to the bottom of this page. (not sure if that's what you want)

Here's the Blender Manual for future use. HTH

You're Welcome-

Yeah you have made a few spelling mistakes......but we all do:-
Firefox has a handful of spell checkers that you can choose from.

about:addons

If I have time (over the weekend) I'll install Blender and see if I can figure it out.

I seen a video on where that dude made mention of hit the b key then shift select and it pops the strips up making them bigger - easier to see because some are only a few frames. while showing how to do something else

fireFox is locking my system up dur to java scripts looping from what I can figure out , so I installed this GNU IceCat derivitive of it until firefox updates again. hopfully fixing it because it was not doing that prior to that upgrade I allowed my system to do, can't downgrade because I deleted my prior cache on my system etc...

I thought of searching for a you tube video but you beat me to it.
Maybe try the add on Ad Block Plus and Ghostery; it helps on my systems.

From the Tools option (on the top of the browser) choose Website Blocker.
Enter the domain you wish to block (like: lipocodes.com OR mozilla.org) in the textbox.


(Pro version (free for now!) - Download From Developer's Site )

My browser <Sea Monkey> prevented LipoCodes from installing software when I tried to download from that link.
http://lipocodes.com/WebsiteBlocker/offer_pro.html

You might want to go directly to the Mozilla add on page and get a blocker that way. (it's up to you)
-::-Something about that pro version and the lipocodes websites seems off.-::-

Little windows that pop up can be annoying. Hope it doesn't continue for you-
If so do what you can to disable it:- (if possible)

I suspect it may have come with the add blocker like you said for financial support or some other unknown reason. Irony; indeed-

well I'm not doing much right now, really. Just staring at my screen and drinking coffee. It's starting to rain (heavily) where I'm at, I planed on going to where I had my new (used) 1600x900 laptop screen mailed to to pick it up. So I can replace this 1366x768 screen. Hopefully it will stop raining by time for me to leave. So I do suppose I'll look into that little pop up thingy. Ain't much else going on here.
