    When I slice a shot and hit delete it deletes the next shot. Can I make the previous shot before the cut to be deleted, instead of the shot after the cursor?

    Hi John!

    So you’re splitting an event (“s” key) and want to delete the previous event (on the left of the split), yes?

    Try ALT-[ to invoke “trim start” — it deletes from the start of the event where the scrubber is on the timeline up to the scrubber position 🙂

    Unrelated — I’m curious why you seem to post here instead of on the forum at http://vegascreativesoftware.info ?

    🙂 Rob

    Just habit. Do u think I’d be asking a larger pool of experts than here? Also, is that forum sponsored by Vegas Pro?

    When pressing “S”, the event AFTER the split will be selected. The option given by Rob will cut off before the cursor or you could write a script that does what you want.

    John! Use the Trimmer. It will do exactly what you want. You don’t need a script. You need to appreciate The Mighty Trimmer and release your creativity. 😎

    Ahh yes, the trimmer–which I don’t like, but let me give it another go at it, Grazie. Thx!

    Or use what you’ve paid for – The Mighty Trimmer. But learning a new skill set is always rewarding. Personally, it’s the Trimmer for me. 😉
