AVID Filler is garbage and not black
by Stacy Lincoln 1 month ago
When I need filler, it's not black. Often it's green...but now it's just a garbage looking white with sync lines. And when a lift a clip from the timeline, it's also garbage, but different. Why isn't

We're still running 8.5 I believe. Long overdue for an update. However, the filler has been an issue a long time. I think Pat might have the answer...a corrupt media file somewhere. I need to update,

You should be able to insert the filler anywhere. Set an "in and out" when you call up filler and hit the yellow insert arrow key. If that doesn't work....make a quick "title" in the title tool and in
