    Ok, I know this is basic…
    I cut rushes down into a long line of selected clips.
    I then want to go back a get two bits of sync from this timeline to cut into my edit.
    I currently am cutting an in and an out point with the razor, then apple c, go back to my edit, make a space in the timeline, apple v, then tidy up the edit. It takes ages.

    I come from Avid, where it takes a few clicks.

    Surely there is a quicker way, what am I not doing, PLEASE HELP!!!

    Thanks V much for any tips.

    Use I and O to mark in and out points. Copy. Use Shift-V to paste insert.

    All the best,
