    Duplicating a clip in the timeline?

    A function I perform often in FCP is to optn drag a clip in the timeline to anywhere I want. Can I do this in Avid?

    Timeline position indicator over the clip you want.

    T key to Mark the clip  I and O.

    Alt C to copy clip into your source monitor.

    Go where ever you want in the timeline, mark in (I key) and overwrite (B key) or insert (V key) edit the clip there.

    Repeat as required

    Why the "sigh?" Much faster than any other editor I've used. With much more control.

    The only thing that I don't like is that the file pastes only on the same track that

    it copied from.

    Change track patching before overwrite or insert and hey presto.

    Hey !

    You also can use the Red or Yellow arrows ("paste/replace" or "insert" mode) to select the clip(s) you want to duplicate.

    - Select the mode you want to use. (I have keyboard shortcuts for these very useful functions)

    - Select the clip(s)

    - Press Cmd C

    - Place the blue timeline indicator where you want to paste or insert the clip

    - Press Cmd V. The clip will be duplicated to the same track where it was.

    Yes... I know; Not as simple as FinalCut !

    It only does that if you use CTRL+C for Copy and CTRL+V for Paste (as if you were using MSWord), if you ALT+C instead, it loads it into the Source monitor and you can patch it to any tracks you like, just as you would any other source clip.

    mac: SHIFT+ALT+COMMAND+CLICK/DRAG will duplicate the clip

    for PC i guess you just switch command for control key.

    You can use the Segment Tool and then opt-drag the clip anywhere you want
