Although this sounds like a fairly basic feature, we have just added the ability to preview media files and clips. There are many ways to preview a clip, including:
- Right click on a media file, choose "Preview"
- Double-click on a media file
- Double-click on a clip on the timeline
- Trim the edge of a clip (it will preview the trim in real-time)
When you are done previewing a clip, simply click anywhere on the timeline ruler (or the play-head) to return to "timeline" mode. Once back in this mode, all the video playback controls and key mappings will return to normal.
