    Fix for timeline transition problems plaging all PS versions

    Very small "Gaps" & clip fragments are what causes the timeline/transition/exporting problems with editing in all versions of PS.  I have suggested flagging them with bright Red in the Render status line.  That would solve 99% of all the problems in both PS21.5 and previous style editing, and PS22 style editing.  The small gaps & clip fragments just go visibly unnoticed  on the timeline and cause the majority of all problems.

    It could be a configuration option to Red flag Gaps and short clips under a specified length in frames.  This would also catch the small 3-4 frame clips that get pushed to the ends of adjacent clips during edits. These little 3-4 frame clips that flash during transitions.

    Such a simple feature to add that would save countless hours of frustration exporting, and going back to fix transition issues, then exporting again, etc...

    You never know if it's simple or not.
    It's possible that something that looks like simple is just too risky to touch and product manager decides to skip it.

    You never know.  Sure would save a lot of time for all PS users and frustration for new PS users ashould documented by the amount of new users on the forum with transition issues.  It never fails that you don't notice one or two clip fragments in transitions during preview, but once exported they appear.  A couple simple fixes, but then you have to export all over again.
