Default Dragging timeline items directly into shortcircuit possible? If not, why not?

Is this possible? I thought I read in a thread that you could alt-drag takes directly into shortcircuit. This would be a tremendously inspirational workflow tool for the way I do things, but I wasn't able to get it to work.
I can't find the original post (it was buried in an unrelated thread), but is there some trick I'm missing here? thanks

I'm pretty sure you can't, a good trick though is to use the "show in finder" or open in finder option (right click on item) then you can drag from the finder/explorer

With Alt-drag you render a copy of the item into your project folder.
From there you can drag it into Shortcircuit.
I don't know of a way to drag straight from the timeline

You sure can - CTRL+Shift+ALT+Drag ("Copy to external application") the item onto the SC window.

and you can also do CTRL+ALT+Drag which does the same thing except it renders the item from the timeline before using it.

so for example:

-if you have an file in the timeline that youve mangled in reaper (added fx, timestreched, chopped, etc...) use CTRL+ALT+Drag to load it in reaper.
-other wise use CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+Drag and it will load the original source file from your harddrive untouched.


was a great day when they added these features.
