    I’ve got to lay off about fifty clips to tape..

    Is there a quick way for me to put a second gap between each clip..

    I’ve looked in the manual and couldn’t find anything.. just wondering if there was some clever short cut ??

    I have the same issue, but after researching, don’t think there is any easy solution. Basically, until PPro incorporates scripting support (if ever), then it must be done manually.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    make a new black clip in the project panel and load it into the source viewer

    set the duration to the size of the gap you need

    select your sequence panel

    1) Press Page down

    2) Press , to insert edit the black slug in

    repeat this start from “1)” above

    should be quick….

    You rule. Such a simple answer, but one I’ve been looking for for quite a while!

    This is especially helpful if you have a string of clips butted up against each other and decide you want to reinterpret the footage at a slower rate (like converting 29.97 to 23.976). If you simply apply this change, the clips will convert but not expand to their full length (they will be the original length, thus clipping the ends).

    This is my life, I edit and edit and edit and edit…

    A small trick I use, select all the clips and change their speed and duration to be a percentage faster. Then nest them into a new clip, then change that new nested clip’s speed and duration a percentage slower (to make the first %) to get you back to normal speed.. but this time with a percentage gap between all the clips.

    Not perfect, but might help.
