Hey Chris, regarding keyboard customization --- if you hold ctrl-shift or cmd-shift while selecting (edit -> keyboard customization), you are presented with an additional button called ">>Clipboard". You can now view all the keyboard shortcuts (if pasted into a text editor), and do a "find" or "search" from there.

You don't have to have the tracks highlighted to run default transition. In fact, I routinely wish to add a default crossfade of audio to many cuts at once... all you have to do is quickly highlight the clips themselves, and then use the keyboard shortcut for "add transition". Depending on what you have highlighted (audio, video, or both) - Premiere will apply the transition, at the length specified in the preferences, to all of the transitions within your clip selection. You shouldn't have to use a separate keyboard shortcut for either, just make your selections (while holding down Alt... or Option?), accordingly.

Jonathan... I take it you have to select the clips on BOTH sides of the transition??? i wish you could just select the transition point...

hey... how about Extend Edit??? Do you use that?

PPRO is an powerfull editor but... FCP is awesome. I'm a PPRO to FCP switcher :)

Here is an alternate way to replace a clip in the timeline while retaining effects. Hold down the alt key, click and drag the desired clip from the project panel to the timeline, hover over the clip that you wish to replace and let go of the mouse button.

Chris, your little tutorials here are really great for those of us moving Premiere Proward. (That's a new word I just made up.) Happy to see how to rethink the little things we all loved in FCP, now in PP.

I tip my hat to you, sir!

What you're performing in Final Cut Pro as a Selective Paste Attribute is the equivalent to a Selective Copy Attribute in Premiere Pro. I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5 on a Windows PC. The <Ctrl> key on a PC keyboard is equivalent to the <Command> key on an Apple keyboard.

First, click on the clip on the timeline that you want to selectively copy attributes. Hold down the <Ctrl> key and left click each attribute in the Effect Controls tab that you want to copy (except the final attribute). While still holding down the <Ctrl> key, right click the final attribute in the Effect Controls tab that you want to copy. A menu will pop up. Click on Copy and release the <Ctrl> key. Now, click on the clip on the timeline that you want to paste attributes. Right click inside the Effect Controls tab and choose Paste when the menu pops up.
