ScreenFlow terms

Link Selection

A feature that links the selection of video and audio clips so they can be moved or edited together.

What is link selection in ScreenFlow?

Link selection in ScreenFlow is a feature that allows users to select and manipulate multiple clips or media elements simultaneously on the timeline. This is particularly useful when you want to apply the same changes or effects to several clips at once, or when you want to move a group of clips together without changing their relative positions.

To use link selection, you simply need to select the clips you want to link together, then choose the "Link" option from the right-click context menu or from the Edit menu. Once the clips are linked, any changes you make to one clip, such as resizing, repositioning, or applying effects, will be applied to all linked clips. This can greatly speed up the editing process and ensure consistency across multiple clips.

How to select a link in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow is a video editing and screen recording software that allows you to capture and record your screen. However, it does not inherently have a feature to select a link within the software. If you want to select a link while recording your screen, you would do it the same way you would outside of ScreenFlow, by using your mouse or trackpad to click on the link.

If you're referring to adding a clickable link to your ScreenFlow video, this is not directly possible as ScreenFlow does not support interactive elements. However, you can add a text box with the URL, or use an annotation to point out a link on the screen. If you're uploading your video to a platform like YouTube, you can add clickable links or cards within the platform's video editor after you've uploaded your ScreenFlow video.

Remember, ScreenFlow is a tool for creating videos, and it doesn't have the ability to create interactive elements within the video itself. Any interactivity, such as clickable links, would need to be added through the platform where you share the video.

Why can't I select a link in ScreenFlow?

There could be a couple of reasons why you're unable to select a link in ScreenFlow. One possibility is that the software is experiencing a glitch or bug. If this is the case, you may want to try restarting the program or your computer to see if that resolves the issue. You could also try updating ScreenFlow to the latest version, as this could fix any bugs or glitches that are causing the problem.

Another possibility is that the link you're trying to select is not actually a clickable link. ScreenFlow is a video editing and screen recording software, and it doesn't inherently support interactive elements like clickable links within the video content. If you're trying to select a link within a video you're editing or viewing in ScreenFlow, it won't work because the video is a recorded content, not a live, interactive webpage.

What are the steps to select a link in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow is a video editing and screen recording software that allows you to capture and record your screen. To select a link in ScreenFlow, you first need to have a video clip or a screen recording that contains the link you want to select.

Start by opening your project in ScreenFlow and navigate to the timeline where your video clips or screen recordings are displayed. Scroll through the timeline to find the video clip or screen recording that contains the link you want to select. Once you've found the clip, click on it to select it.

After selecting the clip, go to the properties pane on the right side of the ScreenFlow interface. Here, you'll find various options to edit your clip. Look for the "Show Web Page URL" option. This is where you can enter the URL of the link you want to select. Once you've entered the URL, click on the "Apply" button to save your changes. Now, when you play your video, the link will be clickable.
