Please add "Move clip to playhead" command, similar to one in AE or Apple Motion.

That would decrease amount of unnecessary mouse clis for a very common clip manipulations in timeline (like moving clips around).

Also, not to be confused with existing "Ripple trim to playhead" and similar. I want to move whole clip, not the cut point.

I have wanted this shortcut for years! A keyboard shortcut to move any clip or clips selected in the timeline to the playhead while preserving the in and out points of that clip or clips.

Would be nice to have two shortcuts. One that moves the clip to the playhead at the in point and one for the out point of the selected clip or clips. In the case of multiple clips it would be treated like one large clip and the in points and out points would translate to the in point of the first highlighted clip and the out point of the last clip in the selection.

Move clip(s) to playhead is essential. Also stationary cursor which stays in the center of the screen. I came from the audio post world back in the day and the features Nuendo and other DAWs have over video editors is embarrassing. Adobe really needs to take a look at the key commands available when it comes to video sweetening.

I'm just an amateur user but I agree there needs to be a way to do this. I keep thinking there must be a hotkey for this and I've looked it up multiple times because it seems so obvious that there would be a hotkey!

Greetings Fellow editors,

I developed new extension: EXCALIBUR. It has "Move Clip Start/End to Playhead" command. It does what you need.
And you can assign shortcut to this command.

But it does much more than that, learn more here:

I really hope someone at adobe is reading this, dragging clips around especially if they're very small is such a massive pain in the a$$. You have to zoom in to even be able to drag it but then once you're zoomed in you can only move in incredibly small increments on the timeline.

Yes, this is vital for moving tiny clips in a long project

Since Adobe either never reads our comments or just flat out ignores them, I'd recommend the plugin Excalibur. It has this feature and many more. It brings a lot of AE type features, like this and "Incremental Save", to Premiere.

Seriously, this would be SO useful. No idea why this doesn't exist in Premiere, because it exists in After Effects and it's one of the commands I use more than any other.

There are so many things in AE that I wish were in Premiere. In some ways, AE has better editing features than Premiere. If only the two teams were in the same company and spoke to each other…..

If you scroll through the timeline using the up and down arrows, you are able to select clips with the keyboard shortcut 'D'. When pressing 'D' once positioned at an empty space, this space will be selected. Press ALT+BACKSPACE, this will ripple delete the empty space, and move the clips behind it towards/against the playhead. Not sure if this is helpfull for your situation, but it keeps you from reaching for your mouse.

How has this not been implemented yet? All this time I assumed it was a hidden shortcut, but reading this it sounds like it doesn't even exist.
