Tip #525: Replace Missing Audio – Fast
Two keystrokes and done!
Have you ever deleted the audio or video of a clip, only to realize later that you need it back? Yup, me too.
Here’s a blindingly fast way to replace the timeline clip:
- Put the playhead in the clip you want to fix; you can use the skimmer, but I prefer the playhead. You don’t even need to select the clip.
- Type Shift + F (This creates a match frame of the timeline clip in the Browser.)
- Type Option + R (This replaces the timeline clip with the clip in the Browser, but matching the In of the Timeline clip.)
Literally, you can replace missing audio in less than 1/2 a second.
