    Move Clips to New Track Shortcut

    I'm hoping that AVID MC soon includes a shortcut that moves clips up/down video/audio tracks.

    CTRL + SHIFT to keep them vertically constrained when dragging up and down.

    CLICK - CLICK -HOLD CTRL - DRAG -  a shortcut for this procedure is what he is asking  for, as i understand it. like CTRL-CURSOR UP or so. Like moving clips horizontally with the trim-keys.

    yes exactly...like nudging clips with the trim keys...I don't like to stop, grab, click and drag...(zzzzz).  wish I could "T" a clip or Mark IN - Mark OUT and entire section of clips and move them up or down with keyboard strokes. :)

    The Artist units, I use a Transport myself, can handle multikey commands, you can create almost any command that you want to and apply it to a single key, maybe something to take a look at .

    +1. Totally agree. It's a huge convenience to be able to stay solely on the keyboard and NOT to have to reach for the mouse/pen.

    Hey this does sound interesting!  Any information that you can provide to lead me to this "Transport" by "The Artist Units"? Thanks for the tip!

    If you have a good memory for avid keys, you could use a gamers keyboard. Most of them come with user definable keys and the software to program them easially. On my Logitech G15 I have many programmed for my needs (like f.e. select everything to the right of my timeline cursor which amounts to CTRL A > add edit > select all right, with one keystroke)

    The same goes for mouse buttons Avid won't recognize in 6.0

    Good knowledge... (I use autokeys, but that is a bit more complicated to programme)

    One favourite is to set bin save to force at 50 mins & have a macro that fires every 5 mins:

    {

    Ctl+0 (select timeline)

    Shift+f (find bin on my keyboard)

    Ctl+S (which just saves that bin, rather than all)

    }

    Which is a big help when working with lots of bins open

    Doesn't answer the OP request though

    +1. This really needs to be easier. Five keystrokes is terreible. And using the mouse is never a shortcut. This has to be faster.
