I have a large project I'm working on. I've been using PD 20 for less than a month but I have a question about locating media in the time line.

Looking at the Media Room listing I can see and sort the media in the libraries. I can see if the individual files are used in the timeline. If I hover over the media in the timeline I can see the filename and then locate it in the listing.

What I cannot do is to not only see if an individual file is being used in the timeline, but where in the timeline, or if it's used multiple times.

I tried right-click on the file but there are no options. I don't see a search feature for the timeline. Does one exist?

Thanks
Rich

Hello,

You can do this by selecting the clip and then going to View > Go to > Find in Timeline.

Most excellent! I never thought to look under "view/goto". Thanks for the speedy reply

Well, today it's not working. I click on view/go to/find in timeline, but it doesn't go anywhere. I could have sworn that it did the other day, but not now. Looks like it should. I thought it would move the cursor there but it doesn't do anything at all.

Is it possible that you deleted that particular clip from the timeline? Maybe try again using a clip you know the actual location of and see if that works.

Sorry for the late response, I've been traveling.

I have a project I created for the Cyberlink support people on another issue I'm having, making iso files for DVD and Blu-ray. This project is only their sample videos and pics. I move to the beginning of the timeline, click on an image in the Media Content box, click View/Go To/Find in timeline and nothing happens. I do this for multiple pics or videos and nothing happens.

Is this the correct way to search? I'm using PD20 Ultimate 64-bit and it says there are no available updates

Hi,

Can you check the exact version of PDR20 ? https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/85748.page#post_box_354918

There was a patch release in July up to v. 2815.

I've attached a quick screen cap of how the function works on my system.

Cheers

I've added my video and snap of the software version. Doing what you do, it doesn't move.

Well, another problem that they can reproduce at the Cyberlink site, without any answer. I'm supposed to "rest assured" that they're working on it.

This is the second issue I have reported with the same reply. I have another one that is probably going to get the same thing. I feel like I should have gotten this software for free since I'm beta testing. (roll eyes, shrug shoulders)

Just another bug in the perpetual license version that's not been addressed. They moved several items from the right mouse click of media in the library room to other menus, never got hooked up correctly.

They've only had 3 updates for the perpetual version since PD20 released 1 year ago so not very well supported, by their design I'm sure, as they want subscription payers. Last 4 versions been total lack of proper update support vs prior perpetual versions, about the end of the road for me.

I used Nero Platinum 11 for years and years. It was really great software. Support was minimal but the product really worked. I have tried Cyberlink PowerDirector 20, Adobe Premiere Elements 2022 and Corel VideoStudio Pro 2020, since about March of this year. They all crash, they all have tools that don't work, they all have poor support. There is no quality in any video software anymore.

I'd still use Nero 11 but I finally got a new laptop with Windows 10 and it won't run on it. Should I buy the Nero suite again? I've thrown out a lot of money since early this year but I'm debating the possible purchase of Nero again. It' only $35 right now instead of $100. Thinking, thinking...

Never mind, it's an annual subscription rate. (sigh)
