I want to create an animation based on audio, so seeing the waveform is helpful.

How can I increase the vertical size of an audio clip in the timeline without increasing the size of the timeline itself?

I get this:

too small clip height

I want this (without having to fullscreen the VSE):

just right clip height

    Also you can place markers on the beat without needing to see the waveform. Just set the sync mode to AV (in the timeline window), this will force Blender to play the sound back at full frame rate. As you play tap the M key to add markers. – 3pointedit May 15 at 10:20

Hold the Ctrl Key and middle mouse button and move the mouse up to zoom in.

  • Much better than the method of dragging something in the left scroll bar (I'm still not sure which element in that bar exactly needs to be dragged. So flaky.) Thanks! – qubodup May 16 at 19:06

Click and drag the left side bar to change vertical size / height of clips/strips/tracks.

Then middle-mouse-button-drag to reposition your view.
