Something on the order of a text read-out indicating
+/- time offset, or a text entry or micro-tweaking
control. The mouse is good for coarse operations, but
sometimes you just want to open a control dialog, leave
it open, and tweak until the alignment is right.
In my case, I am synchronizing music to video. The
original video contains the same music, but was
recorded on the camera's microphone and is much lower
quality than the original. I mixed both the ambient
sound and original music tracks together in Cinelerra,
but precise alignment was a pain.
Another request: operation feedback during any of the
end point drag operations, because remembering mouse
buttons is difficult. Suggestion: write a message in
the status area at the bottom of the project window to
remind the user of which operation they chose, or
special cursor shapes.
