Make the playhead automatically select the clip below it
I would love to see functionality so that when you stop your playhead over a clip during playback or by moving the playhead that it automatically selects that clip, or the nearest clip to the top that's track is toggled on, so that it's settings are ready to play with in the effect controls window. This seems so basic common sense to me to me and I'm trying not to get angry about it here because I know you are good people in there, but it seems some mind numbingly obvious to me as an editor that you would want the clip that you have now moved to and are now looking at to be the one that is selected and presenting it's parameters in the effect controls window (???). FCP did this automatically. PP will do this when the Lumetri Colour window is open...so why not for Effect Controls??
Pleeeease! Basic stuff.
Go to the Sequence menu, turn on "Selection follows playhead". It will act on the track/tracks you have selected. Set up a hotkey for it. done!
