Summary0002920: Can no longer extract more than one in/out pair from source monitor clip. Overwrites previous.
DescriptionSetting a pair in/out points in Source Monitor and drag drop into Project Tree makes a sub clip and works fine but then selecting another pair in/out points and drag drop used to create another sub clip, now it overwrites previous sub clip. 2 or more sub clips can't be added.
Steps To ReproduceAdd source, set in/out, drag to tree, set new in/out drag to tree, only one subclip remains, time and in/out are over written

If I am correct, there was no change in the way sub clip work, it's just that it has always been counter-intuitive.

If you select the main clip, you can create a new zone and add it to the project tree by dragging it.

However, if you have a sub clip selected, as soon as you change the zone it modifies this subclip's zone, so dragging it again in Project tree will not do anything since this a clip with this zone already exists.

If you have ideas for a better workflow, let me know...

Ooops you're correct, no wonder this has always seemed to be trial and error, sometimes seemed to work others not depending on whether source clip or sub clip was selected. :-(

Better workflow?, well there seem to be three options:

1. As is, but user must be sure to select source clip or be confused.
2. Create a second sub clip beneath (not nested) even though in/out points are wider than sub clip already defined. Do we even get nested sub clip of a sub clip anyway?
3. Error message to say in/out points wider than clip. Select source clip.

I'd go for 2. as default, if I have a longish clip where I've left the camera recording even though I may move the camera or refocus or recompose I leave it running to capture the audio for reference with the intention of splitting the audio for ambient and creating multiple in/outs along the clip length to 'prune' out the wobbles, refocus, recompose. I do that in one process, set in/out drag to project tree, set new in/out drag to project tree, and on, I'm not paying attention to whether I have a source clip or sub clip active, the process is pruning multiple short clips out of a long one, not nesting one in/out sub clip inside another, inside another.

Thanks for clarifying, for now I must remember to highlight source clip each time. :-)
