I'm having a hard time understanding how File > "open into layer..." works. Perhaps someone can fill in the gap here and tell me what I'm missing.
If I am looking at a clip in RV, and I want to load in a 2nd clip for comparison, I would expect to hit "open into layer..." and add the 2nd clip, at which point I could A/B the 2 clips by cycling the stack.
But I invoke "open into layer..." and select my new clip, and it appears to do nothing. The new clip is not loaded into the session manager. No error in the shell or console. Nothing at all happens, really, other than my cache refreshing. I would expect my new clip to be added to the session and to the stack.
Instead, it seems like I have to use "open," to add a 2nd clip to the session, which by default loads in sequentially, and then I have to toggle over to the stack mode to compare the clips. Which, I guess is one way to go about it, but took me a few tries to arrive at being able to do it - so not intuitive or efficient, and I'm really curious what "open into layer" does since it doesn't appear to do what I want.
Hoping someone can set me straight. Thanks!
