I have pressed something, not sure what... and now I cannot preview all of the strips in my video, eg; I can preview sound, but not image. If I add a new clip, then this previews fine.

The strips I can't preview seem to be faded out in the video sequence editor, how do I get it back? see image!

Thank you in advance for your help :)

Just select the faded strips and press Alt+H and the hidden strips i.e your transparent strips, will be unhidden. You probably pressed H which is used to hide.

  • $\begingroup$ The screenshot looks just like he hid all his strips, so your answer won't help. He has to just select his movie strips and unhide (ALT+H)... $\endgroup$
