    Cloning a clip in Avid WITHOUT keyboard modifier

    Hi everyone,

    I have a very specific question, which I'm hoping someone knows the answer to.

    I am trying to CLONE clips in Avid (the process of holding ALT/OPTION + dragging a clip to a new bin). I find it's a brilliant way to work if you want clips in more than one bin and make sure metadata carries across everything. To be clear, this is NOT the same as Duplicating a clip (COMMAND + D).

    Unfortunately, I have a snag, which is that using the remote connect software I use (GoToMyPC) the ALT/OPTION modifier isn't working for some reason. So I cannot properly CLONE clips using that software. Does anyone know of any other way in Avid to CLONE a clip without using that keyboard modifier? Can this be re-maped somehow?

     

    P.S.Working on MC 7.0.3, Mavericks 10.9.5, Mac Pro 4,1

    Not sure, but I use TeamViewer and that does allow me stuff like ALT-dragging.

    That's awesome to hear -- I'll give TeamViewer a try!

    Gave this a try on Team Viewer and did not have much success.  Holding down ALT + DRAG results in the clip just moving from one bin to the other.  It doesn't clone like it should.  Any ideas?  Are you also on a Mac?

    Use Save Bin Copy As and create all your clips in a new bin. Close the source bin. Create a new bin for your cloned clips. Drag them from the copied bin to the new bin. That way both bins can be open at the same time (you cannot open a opied bin and the original bin at the same time)

    Can we go back to the way audio nodes used to be selected? Please? ie if you have audio nodes at the same time on selected tracks; then selecting 1 audio node selects them all at that time. Having to shift select nodes or add an in and out is time consuming and counter productive. At least make it an option.

    I'm running into this problem today on Team Viewer on a Mac.

    Were you able to find a solution or other workaround besides creating a bin copy?

    I never got to the bottom of this, no.
