umm, have you tried the ripple edit tool?
you don't need to razor a clip usually, just trim it in from one end or the other.
I think the you should hit the manuals for a little while, or the learning process by trial and error will be steep.
It is far quicker to assemble an edit from the source monitor using In and Out points. Editing with the Razor in the timeline is very slow.
I don't know of any way to get what you want, Miron. The two suggestions offered above, in addition to your current work flow, are about the only choices I know of.
miron_2005, you can use keyboard shortcuts for it on the Timeline:
1. Set an In Point
2. Set an Out Point
3. Use the keyboard shortcut for Extract
I'm very sorry, that Adobe Premiere developers making so many remake of Premiere(6.5 1.5 2.0 CS3 CS4 !!!!) still cannot take in account really usefull options other programs have.
It seems to me they just making money not a programm!
We have to look for another soft...EDIUS has this option. AVID has!!!!
Beleive me I worked on both. It's just I learned videoediting on Premiere so it's like first love.
But the closeminded Premiere developers DO insist on my changing soft...
Pity, but what else could we (users) do to make them hear us?
Stop useing premiere would really return them from the stars!
Ctrl-K, shift-delete? I know, that's two buttons (and a click) but it's fast, as you don't need to move your hands.
It's iffy for multitrack edits, but if you're editing a single track it's quite quick. Whilst the 'correct' way to assemble the edit would be do set in- and out-points in the source window and add to the timeline, it's how I work for the majority of the time.
The best way to get Adobe's attention is to file a Feature Request. With enough of these, strong consideration will be given, when developing the software.
miron_2005, did you try to do what i wrote in post #4?
I know there is lots of way....believe me I tried almost every of them...my quickest is: custom ripple delete to "Z" put the needed clip to the time line and play it. Usually I am the operator, so when I shot the movie I know exactly what I need for my video.
I use thee buttons left hand and a mouse. ("C" -cut; mouse click;"V" - mouse klick; "Z") Really is NOT the quickest way.
You see, I just have to "cut" and move to left to show the history.
Now you understand "in"-"out" is much farthest way from what I need. Imaging you're making news you need to do it really quickly.
to Keith "Ctrl-K, shift-delete? I know, that's two buttons (and a click) but it's fast, as you don't need to move your hands." - really good for news but it cuts all tracks.
Often I have the audio on second track, and I need to cut only 1-st V&A
sorry but Ctrl-K isnot good.
to Hunter "The best way to get Adobe's attention is to file a Feature Request." Thanx I did It. But don't even hope.
Many companies nowadays tend to include in their productions the best of the best...today I dont even know why I should still love my first love - Adobe. Romantic,huh? ;) Nomore. I go to Edius, Avid or (still never tried) Final Cut - people say its the best...I'll see
