I can't figure out a short way to ask this question, so forgive my wordiness.
Let's say I want to cut a clip into three segments with the intention of removing the middle segment and closing the gap. After making the first cut at the start of the middle segment, I would then zoom into where I would make the second cut at the end of the middle segment. If I then right click on the middle segment and choose "ripple delete," the middle segment is removed and the gap is closed, but I am left looking at the same point on the timeline where I made the second cut. I want my screen to automatically jump to the new edit point. As it is now, I have to scroll to the left and manually find the edit point. Premiere 6.5 would keep the edit point centered on the screen. Is there a setting in CS4 that would change this?
I assume you 'razor' these cuts and then ripple delete. The default to go to the previous edit point (the cut you made with the razor tool) would be Page up and Page down for the next edit point.
I want my screen to automatically jump to the new edit point.
I don't think that's possible. The CTI does not move with the Ripple.
