Mostly interviewer/interviewee 2 x mics where I can do the edit/balance based on waveforms initially.
I'm using the pen tool a lot, and have to switch tools between pen (to mark keyframes) and selection tool (to adjust horizontal bar between those keyframes).
Q1. Is there a key I can use to override one tool with the other, rather than having to toggle between pen & selection?
When losing sections (e.g. remove interviewers mic during answer)I typically will mark in & out around the section, then toggle the correct track selection, then delete. Kind of clunky compared to Avid for track selection but works. (Also blade & delete at times)
In FCP7 (!) there was a 'range selection tool' which was FANTASTIC for this kind of editing. Basically you could highlight a section of a clip (with in/out or mouse drag) and delete.
Q2. Am I missing any great PP tricks for this kind of editing/mixing?
