…I'm a big fan of using keyboard shortcuts to edit.…And I think most editors would agree that if you can take the time to…learn the keyboard shortcuts in an editing system, it is just always faster.…And of course, the difficulty is if you're working with multiple systems and…how do you transfer from one to another.…But actually, I think it only takes a couple of weeks to get to grips with…the core batch of options, like adding in and…out marks and, inserting and overwriting and so on.…But there are some more advanced keyboard shortcuts that are often specific to…a particular system.…
I just want to show you a couple of very, very useful trimming shortcuts that will…save you potentially quite a lot of time on the Timeline.…I've got a shot here that is a really nice shot, but I want to shorten it.…You can see if I play this through, this is a nice behind-the-scenes shot…of the microphone used in the club scene of this music video.…And then at the end, we've got this nice cut into Carmen Perez standing there.…
In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
- Establishing the starting point
- Stripping out content from the assembly cut
- Editing quickly with keyboard shortcuts
- Advanced trimming techniques
- Trimming with the JKL technique
