    Exception: sequence refers to non existent track in clip ERROR

    I've seen a lot of posts on this. But not quite describe my problem.


    I’ve selected a bunch of sub-clips, carefully colour-coded them, added details in three separate columns, sorted them and now I’m ready to edit. There are almost two thousand sub-clips… so I should be ready to go.

    Problem is I’m getting this crazy "Exception: sequence refers to non existent track in clip” error on various clips. And note that I said CLIPS. Not a sequence, as the error states.
    Upon closer examination I see that the sub-clip erroneously thinks it’s two mono tracks where the original clip is a single stereo track. This is an error the MC introduced somehow. There doesn’t seem to be a way around this except load each clip in and click the annoying “ok” message each and every  time it loads in the source window.
    VERY ANNOYING.
    Let’s all this a bug.
    But even with this bug, the simplest work-around would be to be able to modify the sub-clips and turn off the audio tracks. But the MC never allows you to do this. I understand why: it could get wonky with subclips having audio tracks and masters not having them. But that’s kind of what I’m going through here…and it’s not supposed to do this. Classic Catch-22.
    I’m mentioned this in MC user request forums before — so once again I’ll put this forward. I think there should be an option to HIDE tracks without muting them. You could do this on Master clips and Sub-clips. This would help to keep all the tracks but not be bothered by them during the selection/editing process (Data tracks anyone?) It keeps the integrity of the master clip but makes managing multitrack cameras so much easier.
    Or, allow us to modify a subclip but only in the master clip permits additions or subtractions because it has those tracks. Many is the time I simply don’t want the audio and I should be able to do this as a batch to the subclips after selecting them. Give us a stern warning if you must.
    My two cents.

    I've enagged users and programers about my modify subclip request before. Usually results in long explanations as to why it's a bad idea. But I've expereinced too many times where it would have saved me a lot of trouble. Alas.
