Have you tried Page Down???
The only way I know of to 'select' a clip on the timeline is to click on it. I don't know any any keyboard shortcuts that allow clip selection.
The previously mentioned PageUp/Page/Dn should do what you want, but maybe I am missing what you wish to do. Does that not work for you in your intended workflow?
fua ho's remark was because he did not understand or read the question so his answer is altogether wrong (as happens pretty oft). Page up or down only moves the CTI to the next or previous edit point in the targeted tracks. It does not select the intended clip, which is what the OP wants. I agree with Jim, AFAIK there is no keyboard shortcut for that.
Page Down moves to the insertion point to the next clip but it doesn't actually select the next clip. I guess I just have to keep clicking on it with the mouse. Thanks.
That is why I asked what the OP wanted. I, too, was not 100% clear.
If one has a dozen still images on the Timeline, then PageUp/PageDn will step one through the Timeline, Clip by Clip.
The term "Selection," can be confusing. Does the OP want the next Clip to be Selected, and if so, for what purpose?
Now, if the OP wants the Selection to occur in the Project Panel, say to string the sitlls onto the Timeline, one could order, as is necessary, then click the first, Shift-click the last, and drag. If they are numbered still, then more options open up. It's the exact definition of the terms used, that I am unclear on.
The term "Selection," can be confusing.
I disagree. In this context, selecting a clip has a very precise and finite definition. It means only one thing. Kent wasn't talking about the Project panel. He was asking about selecting a clip in a sequence with a keyboard shortcut. Very clear, very precise.
As far as I know, it's just not possible.
I agree now. Kent's response did not appear for me, when I posted to Harm.
Now, it is very clear. Thank you.
