Does anyone know if there is a way of drag trimming (using the mouse), so that the trim head doesn't stop at every edit?

I have a music track that I have cut into multiple times when making adjustments to a scene, and I need to drag it from the first edit point to the end of the scene.

I have a feeling there is a key that needs to be held down, during the process, but I can't for the life of me remember what it is (assuming it actually exists?!).

Many Thanks

Peter

I don't think there is a quick way of trimming, but if you mark in and out on the entire clip, then:
either 1, match frame and replace the clip, or
2, in the audio mixer drop down menu - remove pan and volumes on entire clip, then in the clip menu - remove match frame edits.

Thanks Juris, I've have asked around, and there seems to be solution beyond doing what you have described1

A FB forum suggests using extend edit or turning off snapping in the timeline settings. Someone posted this…

You don't need to drag at all. Just use Extend Edit and the clip will trim magically to wherever your play head is.
For more information, search Your Avid Help.
