Continuous playback allows you to quickly review clips in the Browser without constantly selecting them and pressing Play.

When this setting is chosen, multiple event clips play without interruption (rather than stopping at the end of each clip).

  • Click the clip icon in the top right corner of the Browser and check Continuous Playback.
  • Once that’s checked, put your playhead in any Browser clip and press play.

When the first clip finishes, playback immediately continues with the next clip.


Remember, you can add markers to any Browser clip by pressing M. This allows you to flag key sections during initial screening.
