How can I set the default behaviour of the RAZOR tool to ALWAYS cut through all tracks instead of 1?

When I select the razor tool it cuts but only cuts the clip and linked audio of the clip I click on. If I hold down shift it will cut through all the tracks and all the audio at that point in the timeline no matter how many clips or audio tracksIs there a way to make this the default behaviour and make shift+click the way it is now.

 

Also, I thought there was a way to set "active tracks" so the razor tool will always cut anything in audio or video tracks with a single click? I can not seem to work it out.

 

Basically I have a number of clips and audio that I wish to edit, so they are always in sync.. so one cut needs to cut all. Through I do not want to have them all linked as it makes it hard to do the various other edits. So I need a way to quickly cut through all the tracks somehow.. 

 

Thanks!

Hold and press the Shift key when you click. When the Shift is pressed the razor tool will cut all clips no matter if they are targeted or not. Targeting tracks comes in to play when you use keyboard shortcuts to cut, such as Ctrl+K.

If no track and no clip is selected ctrl+K will cut through all clips.

If no tracks are selected and just one clip, ctrl+K will just cut that selected clip.

You need to target all the tracks:

Thanks.. but I think I must be doing something wrong. I have the tracks "targeted" by the blue boxes on the right, as shown in the second video you linked to me... but then I press C for the razor tool and click on the timeline and it only cuts the single clip that I am clicking on no matter what track the video and audio is in.

 

As I understand it from your reply and that video (which dose not demonstarte cutting btw) that all I need to do is click the left blue boxes in the tracks and then the cut should "target" all those tracks.... is that correct?

 

What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks

Thanks.. as I said in the OP, I already knew about the shift+click... but you are saying that the actual cut tool I am looking for is "ctrl+k"... not "c"... and it is "ctrl+k" that uses the "targeted tracks" options I have been told about in this thread?

O.k, got it. 

 

Targeting tracks come in to play when for example using Ctrl+K to cut. If no track is targeted Ctrl+K will do nothing, if only V1 is targeted only V1 will be cut when using Ctrl+K, if V1+A1 is targeted only V1+A1 will be cut when using Ctrl+K, etc, etc.

 

One need to be on the edge when editing with unlinked clips since it is so easy to by mistake cause A/V sync issues. Ripple Trim is a good friend in those cases. (...in all other cases as well.)

I recommend NOT using the razor tool, it's imprecise and a slow way to work. map 'add edit' to a keyboard shortcut instead. I have it mapped to the Y key so I can hit it with my p9nky when J-K-L ing around the timeline
