i was wondering if there was a way to mark a gap in a track and mark that gap’s in and out points. What I want is kind of like selecting a clip’s in to out by hitting x, except I want to select the gaps in and out points by hitting one button, rather than a few up/down arrows, an i, and an o. This would save some time for me when adding broll.
Well, selecting a gap with Mark Clip is just like selecting a clip with Mark Clip. Park the playhead in the gap and tap the X key. Then you’ll have an in and out perfectly marked for the gap (no need to go left one frame with the playhead for the out point). The only caveat is that you have to have the proper track auto-selected.
There are a couple of reasons to mark a gap, one is to find out the duration of the gap, so you can narrow down which clip is long enough to fill it OR you simply want to make an edit into the gap with a 3 point edit.
