Video Sequence "Slip" tool ignores handle offset constraints
Confirmed, HighPublicBUG

Description

When transforming video sequencer handles, there are limits beyond which you cannot move them which is enforced by the transform code.

The Slip operator ignores these constraints - allowing the strip content to be dragged with offsets that are outside the strip start/end.

To redo:

  • Start a new Video Sequencer Template
  • Add a new scene
  • Add that scene as a sequence strip.
  • Press 'S' to slip the selected strip.
  • Move the strip to the right of the strip (500 frames eg) so the strip has no content in it.
  • As an example of how this isn't properly supported:
    • Change the "Strip offset start" - The Scene flips and becomes negative, showing handles in the opposite directions.
