Selecting a clip on timeline with keyboard?
on Sep 26, 2011 at 10:25:07 am

Is there a keyboard shortcut for selecting a clip in the timeline if you don't already have one selected? And possibly changing which clip is selected after one is already selected; like using the arrow keys or something?

Sorry, no... you need to select it with the selection tool. You can jump from clip to clip, you can even jump from edit to edit point, but not from one clip selection to another.

You can select a clip without the mouse by using the track selection tool to isolate the track where the clip is - then mark in and out and then Option-A to select the clip. A bit cumbersome but I was bored one day and wanted to figure how to do this in case I lost the desire to use a mouse. As far as flipping from clip to clip - not sure except to repeat this process.

Never mind... delete this post, I thought this was for FCPX rather than FCP7...


..and knowing is half the battle.
