During editing, you often need to move all the clips on a track at once. A quick way to do this is to use ripple move. Hold Shift, then click and drag a clip on the timeline.
You can also ripple move media on multiple tracks. Select a clip on each track and then hold Shift while simultaneously dragging.
To split media on all of your tracks and move them at the same time, press and hold Shift and then drag the playhead.
This is called a ripple split and it’s great for when you need to add some content to the middle of a video or if you’d like to make room for an intro.
Extend the frame of a recording so you have more time to finish an action or thought.
To extend a frame, hold the Alt key on Windows or the Option key on Mac and then click and drag from the end of a clip. A copy of the frame is added to the end of the clip.
If you’re on Windows, a second way to extend a frame is to select a clip, place the playhead at the frame you want to extend, then right-click and select Extend Frame.
Extend frame becomes even more powerful when paired with ripple move. Use ripple move to create the exact amount of space you need on the timeline, then extend the frame to fill the space.
