    How to select a full clip with keyboard?

    cliffclof Level 1

      I understand I can hit the 'T' key to select the nearest edit point, but how do I select a full clip so that I can copy it and paste it?  Lets say I don't want to use the mouse because it doesn't select the small clip very easy after the new 'dull' cs6 mouse tools were added.

          There is no way to do that with the keyboard.


          Premiere CS6 has a new feature for copy/pasting clips.

          Hover mouse over clip, hold down ALT, click and drag.

            **UPDATE** CC allows a shortcut to be edited called: "Select Clip at Playhead" in keyboard shortcuts.  This allows the CTI to choose the clip it currently touches in the highlighted tracks.



            That is so funny I just, JUST accidentally stumbled on the alt copy 3 minutes ago before I checked this.  I like that because it makes sense.  It took me a couple minutes to realize that now to move linked clips individually you have to alt click then re-click and drag without keyboard modifiers to move a clip without copying.  I like this feature.


            That's a bummer about the no clip selecting with keyboard though.  I think I needed it more for selecting transitions to delete and I'm noticing right now that even when the select tool turns into the (trim tool?) when mousing over a transition the transition still becomes selected when clicking anywhere on it.  That's not bad.


            Love/Hate with the changes until I get used to them.  now my biggest annoyance is the snap and cursor fattiness.  But my biggest love is the continuous edit/cut-while-playback feature using Quadro card.
