Hide Rejected

A command to hide clips marked as rejected from view.

What is Hide Rejected in ScreenFlow?

Hide Rejected in ScreenFlow is a feature that allows users to hide or remove any clips or portions of clips that have been marked as "rejected". This can be particularly useful during the editing process, as it allows users to focus only on the parts of their footage that they are interested in using, without having to sift through or be distracted by the parts that they have decided not to use.

When a user marks a clip or a portion of a clip as "rejected", it does not delete that footage from the project or the library. Instead, it simply hides it from view in the timeline. This means that if a user changes their mind later on, they can easily unhide the rejected clips and incorporate them back into their project. This feature thus provides flexibility and efficiency in the editing process.

How to hide rejected clips in ScreenFlow?

In ScreenFlow, there isn't a direct option to hide rejected clips. However, you can manage your clips in a way that makes it easier to distinguish between the ones you want to use and the ones you don't. One way to do this is by using layers or tracks. You can place the clips you want to use on one layer and the rejected ones on another. This way, you can easily hide the entire layer containing the rejected clips by clicking on the eye icon next to the layer.

Another method is to use markers. You can add a marker to the rejected clips and name it "rejected" or something similar. Then, you can easily navigate through your clips and know which ones are rejected. Remember, ScreenFlow doesn't automatically delete your unused or rejected clips, so it's important to manually delete them if you're sure you won't be using them to free up space.

Is there a way to hide rejected parts in ScreenFlow?

Yes, there is a way to hide rejected parts in ScreenFlow. ScreenFlow has a feature called "Marking Clips as Favorites or Rejects". This feature allows you to mark certain parts of your video as favorites or rejects. Once you have marked a part of your video as a reject, you can then choose to hide these rejected parts.

To do this, you simply need to select the clip or part of the clip that you want to reject, then click on the "Mark as Rejected" option. After you have marked all the parts you want to reject, you can then go to the "View" menu and select "Hide Rejected". This will hide all the parts of your video that you have marked as rejected, allowing you to focus on the parts of your video that you want to keep.

What steps should I follow to hide rejected sections in ScreenFlow?

To hide rejected sections in ScreenFlow, you need to follow a few simple steps. First, open the ScreenFlow project you are working on. Then, navigate to the timeline where the sections you want to hide are located.

Next, select the sections you want to hide. You can do this by clicking and dragging over the section in the timeline. Once you have selected the sections, right-click on them and choose the 'Mark as Rejected' option from the drop-down menu. This will hide the selected sections from your project. Please note that this action doesn't delete the sections, it just hides them from view. If you want to view these sections again, you can simply unmark them.
