Is there a way to use trim mode (trim edit) when in sequence/timeline?
When I go to trim edit I have to click the program monitor to be able to do the trim. This takes an extra click on the mouse, takes my hands off the keyboard and slows down my workflow.
If this is not possible, is there a way to make premiere automatically set focus to the program monitor when using trim edit, and automatically shift focus back to the sequence/timeline after exiting trim edit?
Also, is it possible to update my selected tracks when in trim edit? Whenever I enter trim edit mode, I have to exit trim edit to be able to change what audio/video tracks im trimming, and then re-enter trim edit mode again. Thats alot of questions:)
As you write I can trim left and right, but I can't trim 1 or 5 frames at a time. I can only use J or L to trim while playback. To do fine adjustments, which it what I do all the time as I work as a commercial editor, I have to set focus on the Program monitor.
As for track selection, I already have shortcuts for every track, but when in trim mode I can only toggle tracks on/off, but the tracks remain selected for trimming as they were when going into trim edit. Hope it makes sense.
