Hey guys,

 

I'm trying to find a solution to my trimming problem. I like to use the mouse a little as possible as the the keyboard is just much faster. So there is a shortcut for entering the trim mode at the position of the playhead which automatically puts it into a mode which lets me shift the point of the cut. And then theres a shortcut for changing the trimmode which changes from rippel to overwrite and A to B Side. So if you want to make a  overwrite trim of the B Side for example, you have to hit the same key 3 times... and if you accidentally hit it 4 times you can start all over again.

 

So My question is, is there a way of to select the A and B Side of the trim with shortcuts?

In my Avid I have A side on one key B side on another and change of the trimmode (overwrite,ripple) on a third. Is there any way to build it like that?

 

Would really appreciate the help! Thanks.

Never used Avid so I have no idea what overwrite trim is.

Just open the kbsc and see what is available,

It's the red trimming tool. Which lets you overwrite the clips you pull the clip your trimming over. I found it. Its called its called trim out and trim in in Premiere for some reason.
