teri, thank you for your commitment to your product and our industry.
just deleted LF, power cycled the ipad2 iOS current version, reinstalled LF leaving all settings at default, created new video clip with camera app to camera roll, created new project in LF, imported clip from camera roll, timeline is blank, trash can is still greyed-out in info window.
new clip created in filmic pro set to save in camera roll. same result.
HOWEVER, new clip saved in filmic pro library, then imported into LF project DOES have functional trashcan.
just replicated entire process to confirm that clips coming from camera roll are not deletable in LF, and clips imported from FP library are deletable. and, yes, clips deleted in the photo app are deleted in LF preview, so maybe that's the fix i'm looking for.
thanks for all you guys do.
life goes on
