  • Is there a shortcut key to deselect a clip?

    I want to deselect currently selected timeline clip without picking up the mouse or having to press multiple keys.

    Any ideas?

    Not sure if you mean to not move the mouse or even tough it, but CTRL Click or just clicking away from it will deselect it. If you want to take full advantage of Edius speed, you need to use both the mouse and keyboard.

      Yes, I mean not to have to pick up the mouse...

      I did find what I thought might be a solution but it didn't work out, maybe you can help..

      Browsing through the Edius 6 shortcut key list I came across "Select Clip on the Timeline Cursor (Selected Tracks)" that had no assignment.

      With this I was able to move from the currently selected clip to where my cursor is which seemed perfect, since I am merely trying to add a dissolve to where my cursor is following an "M" trim.

      So I assigned this new shortcut key right alongside my existing shortcut key for dissolve thinking I would soon learn to press both keys one after another instead of just the dissolve key by itself which on Edius 6 unfortunately for me always causes the dissolve to go on the beginning of a selected clip rather than where my cursor is.

      However, it's not working out, in practice I can press M to trim a clip, then use the new shortcut to move selection to the next clip but then when I press my dissolve shortcut key nothing happens, if I press it twice it sometimes works. Trying to see why I noticed that "Select Clip on the Timeline Cursor (Selected Tracks)" selects the clip to the right of the cursor ok when my cursor is between clips but the the information palette is blank compared to when the same clip is manually selected with the mouse.

      Oh dear, did I write all that? Sorry...

        there seems to be something strange going on

        when I press Ctrl+M the clip is trimmed and following clip follows as it should, then I press Ctrl+P the transition is added at the cursor position

        can you describe what happens when you do that

        are you by any chance in that deadly ripple mode?

          Anton, it's nothing to do with "Ripple Mode", it's to do with "Toggle Extend Clips when applying transition". If this is ticked it works as you describe, if not then unless the clips are already trimmed back the dissolve goes onto the cut point one clip before it's expected to land.

          To be honest I have tried working with ripple mode off and the toggle extend ticked and the extra ALT needed for the M key and it drives me crazy. I can get back to my once productive workflow if I can just find a key to deselect the clip left selected by the M key as then the dissolve always goes where expected, as in Edius 5.

            you can use N and M for ripple trim when ripple mode is off

            all you need to do is remap the Alt+N to N and Alt+M to M
