Chris, you don't have any tracks targeted, so Premiere doesn't know which track you want to navigate through using next/previous edit.

wow... that took me a long time to figure out... but David is correct... you need to click in the negative space around ht e track label to make it a lighter grey... erg... that was hard... once you do that you can then use the page up and page down... but its PER TRACK... it will only jump to the next edit in THAT track.

You can select multiple tracks in video or audio, and then you can use page up/down to go between edits on all tracks

for quick cutting:

use the letter C to get a little razor blade for 'cutting.' you can then cut that one clip. If you want to cut all the layers at that point, I think it's Shift+C.

(You do need to use the mouse for this, and I realize you prefer doing things with the keyboard shortcuts.)

Up/ down arrows to move clips would be nice, but if you have the Magnet "snap" function on, it's easy to move them up or down accurately.

Thanks for these videos!

Hi Chris, I wasn't sure the best place to post this and I didn't see a "contact me" button. I appreciate your insights on your site and on the Digital Convergence podcast so I figured you may be a great resource on this. I recently landed a new day job at a corporate office and I will be implementing corporate video (training videos). I am a Final Cut user but will only have Premier Pro here.. never touched it! I will be using your tutorials and online resources BUT I am also trying to find a good book on PP CS5 and can't determine the best one. The Classroom in a Box from Adobe seems decent but reviews say it isn't very hands on. Do you or your readers have any suggestions on a good PP CS5 book to supplement the web?

Thanks for your contributions to the Filmmaking & editing world!

I like to drag another timeline directly above the timeline I will used for the final edit and drag the edited clips into the timeline I will use for the ffinished spot. This makes for a lot less clutter. Just drag the tab from another sequence and put it on top or bottom of the timeline you are using.

This is a good blog message, I will keep the post in my mind. If you can add more video and pictures can be much better. Because they help much clear nderstanding.

Is it possible to cut only 2 tracks per slice? It's very common to have 3 video tracks and 1 audio track on top of one another and I would like to cut only the first two, not just one, not all, but as many as I select. I'm a noob and have just switched from FCE4 to Premiere Pro cs 5.5.
