ScreenFlow terms


A feature to isolate a track or clip so only it is heard during playback.

What is Solo in ScreenFlow?

Solo in ScreenFlow is a feature that allows users to isolate a specific track or layer in their project, enabling them to focus on or edit that particular element without any distractions from other components. When a track is set to "solo", all other tracks are muted or hidden, making it easier to concentrate on the solo track. This can be particularly useful when working on complex projects with multiple layers or tracks.

For instance, if a user is working on a video project with several audio and video tracks, they can use the Solo feature to isolate a specific audio track to fine-tune its volume or effects. Similarly, they can solo a video track to focus on its visual elements. This feature enhances the user's control over individual elements of their project, thereby improving the overall editing process.
