Tip #1796: Move Multiple Clips with One Shortcut
The ability to move clips as a group makes it easier to adjust segment timing.
Premiere provides a fast and easy way to move multiple clips at the same time: the Track Select Forward tool. Here’s how it works.
From the toolbar, select the Track Select Forward tool. (There’s no assigned keyboard shortcut, but you can add one in Premiere > Keyboard Shortcuts.)
Click in the timeline. All clips that exist at that frame in the timeline are selected, even if it’s only the tail end of a clip.
NOTE: If you find yourself selecting clips that you don’t want to select, move the cursor past the end of the clips you don’t want to select.
- Type Cmd + [left / right] arrow to move all selected clips one frame left or right.
- Type Shift + Cmd + [left / right] arrow to move 5 frames left or right.
In the tool bar, click the small arrow next to the Track Select Forward tool to choose the Track Select Backward tool. It works the same way, except that it selects all clips BEFORE the position you click in the timeline.
