Changing frame_start on an audio strip does not update audio playback: the audio plays as if the strip had not moved.


  • Create a Video Editing project
  • Import an audio file in the VSE
  • In the Properties Panel (N), Strip section, Time category, change the Start value
  • Play

Even if the strip isn't over the time cursor anymore, the audio plays as if the strip's frame start had not changed. This also happens when changing sequence.frame_start e.g. using Python code.
