Hm, i don't understand, why one would use takes in that way. From what i understand so far, the clip-head as well as the the created takes-clip point to the same original file(as supposed in non destructive editing). But what i don't understand is, when i have created cliphead and takes that way, i can't do anything with them. They have to stay at the same point in time where they once have been created, otherwise i won't be able to choose from the different takes as this will bring them back to their original position anyway. That behavior feels really odd and unpredictive to me.

But to be honest, setting a takesrange at the middle of a clip would not be something that i would have come up with in a normal working situation
as i couldn't image what that would do to the clip. It's just something i came across due to heavily testing your feature.

The behavior that i would have expected for creating takes from a clip with a range set in the middle of it would be:

  1. the clip gets splitted
  2. the cliphead is just an instance from the original file that gets trimmed down to the point where i set the startpoint of the takesrange
  3. the cliptakes are an instance of that original file with an offset set to the startpoint of the begin of the takesrange
  4. i could use the cliphead as well as the takesclip independent from each other (means move them to any point of any audiotrack i want them to, without loosing the abillity to cycle through the takes)

I simply doesn't understand why the cliphead as well as the takesclip must stay at the very same position otherwise i loose the abillity to cycle through the takes..
