Random clip arrangement in the VSE

I was wondering if it’s possible to select a bunch of movie clips and have the VSE place them on the timeline randomly. One after another, of course, with no gaps, but as for the edit itself, totally random.

Is that possible? maybe a script out there or something?

Thanks in advance!


You can animate a lot of stuff like track distribution (vertical) perhaps you can animate start frame too. Then apply a f-curve noise envelope and freeze it. Latest Ton tool is remove gaps, but I don’t recall key stroke…

Sadly you cannot keyframe the strip start frame value. Sorry.
