Looking for a feature: Moving all clips to 0 (if there is empty space before)

Hello,

I am looking to a way to move all clips inside a track, all together, to the beginning in case there is empty space; for example:

we start with

Bed30321077z973_0-1707390073250.png

 

and we move all 3 selected clips to the beginning without altering their disposition:

Bed30321077z973_1-1707390114998.png

 

They are just SHIFTED.

And without necessarily altering other tracks. ALTHOUGH If this feature exists and it moves every item from all tracks, I can work with it aswell.

Hope it exists! I don't want to move them by hand I'd rather click on some menus to do it.

Select Track Select Forward tool and hold down shift for moving clips on one track.

 

Got the name of the tool a bit muddled up.

Select all : Sequence > close gap.

Edit: outcome depends on what is also on the timeline.

(Edit: Sequence close gap does not do I want unfortunately it closes ALL gaps aven after the first clip)

My bad I looked at that menu and did not see that option (there are so many things).

You are indeed an expert thank you. Additional question (I was going to make a post about it but if you have the answer I won't), do you know how to select all clips from one single track without having to use the mouse and making a rectangle around them? Maybe some shortcut?

EDIT: it seems that's not the right option hence your edit.

Thanks, yes I saw it on later on, its a pretty powerful tool!

One last thing I would love to have it eiher tell Premiere to ignore everything behind the first clip (so it does not make a video that start with black screen that has no sound) or be able to crop that (like the close gap do but only the beginning) if you find that , that would be awesome method to have in hand
