Default Understanding "Commit to Track"


The whole commit to track seems pretty straight forward but I have two questions. Why does it usually add about 30 seconds onto the new audio file? The committed audio files are the yellow tracks in the below images.

Also is there a way to get it to start at the beginning of the timeline? This is useful if you are switching DAWs (some which don't have the Spot Function).

Thanks for your time.

Default Re: Understanding "Commit to Track"

You have the option of leaving individual clips as individual, but you also can commit a selection. So Swipe from the end back to zero in the timeline and commit that selection
