So i just started with avid, because i´m sick of the lack of stability on Premiere, and i need some help ☺

In premiere i used to put all clips on a timeline and put the ones e like on V2, just pull them up (nudge up), then i select all clips with the arrow from select track. And premiere selects all clips on V1 and their audio, and doesn't select nothing on V2 or its audio even if the audio is in the same track as V1. I then do a ripple delete have all the "good" clips i selected, without any gaps fillers, between them.






But on avid i just can´t select the clips on V1 this way, i always get the V1 its audio, and also the audio of V2. Even if i select the red arrow an shift click all clips on V1 to ripple delete them, i just can´t because the extract and lift dont work. I can only do a standart delete, and then i get all those black filler spaces ☹

So is there any way i can achieve the same result as premiere? Because this is always been my workflow ☹ thanks

You need to deselect tge linked clip option. Top leftish of timeline view.
It defaults to on and ensures that when either video or audio are selected its related track elements are selected. Turn this off and you achieve what you want.

Maybe i did not explain my self right, English is not my native language and for that im sorry ☹

I do a lot of add edits along the timeline ( about an hour of footage) , and i put up those add edits to V2 and the audio stays on A1 and A2. The next step i want to select all of my footage/clips on V1 and its audio. And then ripple delete all of this on V1, and staying only with the V2 and its audio without any gaps/filler.

But first i cant select all the clips on the timeline in V1, without also selecting the audio from the clips on V2.

What im i doing wrong? Thanks

You could only select clips in sections, with the yellow arrow selected, then you could select clip 1, 2, and 3, hit delete and they would ripple delete, leaving clip 4 on video track 2 at the front of the timeline. you then would have to manually select the next group of clips on v1 you want to delete.
