Site Exclusive Tutorial Recording Notes:

Disclaimer: these are the actual notes I used to record this video and are written in a language you may or may not understand. Hopefully, you find them useful or cool.

  1. Ripple Delete – make 2 cuts and ripple delete
  2. Ripple Deleting an empty area – select an empty area between cuts and right click and ripple delete
  3. Also! Make sure you have Marker>Ripple Sequence Markers ticked on to allow markers to ripple up/down the timeline with your edits.
  4. Show how to set an Add Edit hotkey to cut clips and use the “X” hotkey to ripple delete that bit of the clip
  5. Hotkey to “pick up” the Ripple Edit tool (B)
  6. Hotkey to hold to get to and use the Ripple Delete while editing (Cmd)
  7. Hotkey to ripple delete a frame at a time to perfect a cut (with Ripple Delete tool selected, click a cut and use Alt/Opt + left/right arrow keys)
  8. In/Out and Extract the piece of footage – show extract command w/ hotkey (‘)
  9. Rolling Edit tool to focus ripple delete on just one track and not affect anything down the timeline or knock anything out of sync (Cmd/Ctrl and hover over the cut to activate this tool)
  10. Hotkey: Alt/Opt + click and drag video to only roll video and/or audio (this is great for creating J/L transitions)
  11. Extend edit to the play head by selecting the cut and press “E” or Extend backward by hitting “Shift + E”
  12. Extend/Trim Edit: Shift Q/W (this happens across all tracks. Use Shift + Q/W for it to only affect the targeted track(s))
