    Frequently used KB shortcuts in MC5??

    To all the seasoned editors that use MC what are the frequently used shortcuts do you guys use?? I'm trying to make a list to be printed and taped by my monitor so I can get use to using MC with a keyboard.. Currently here is on whats on my list. Oh and I made the list for my hackintosh but i'm guessing all you have to do is substitute control for command on a windows machine right?? 

     

    Bigger Track   ( command + L)

    Smaller Track (command + K)

    New Video Track  (command +Y)

    New Audio Track  (command+U)

    Select All   (command + A)

    Deselect all (cmnd + shft +A)

    New Bin          (command+ N)

    Open Bin        (command + O)

    Windows 7 System- MSI 880 mobo, AMD 1055t X6, 4gb ram, Nvidia GT 240 Hackintosh System- Gigabyte h55 mobo, i5 760, 4 gb ram, Nvidia GT 240 [view my complete system specs]

    Hi,

    jiggyjay:

    Yes.

    The only one I use regularly that's a default is ALT+C to copy marked timeline material into the source monitor.  Most of the time this is to copy a somewhat complex transition effect that I want to use someplace else.  All the others I use a lot are ones I've mapped.  Don't know if that's what you're interested in, but I'll list them anyway:

    Shift + M = match frame
    Shift + N = find bin
    Shift + B = segment overwrite
    Shift + V = segment splice-in
    Shift + T = new title
    Shift + I = import
    Shift + E = export
    Shift + R = render at position
    Shift + F = fade effect
    H = add edit
    A = rewind
    S = fast forward
    Up arrow = less detail
    Down arrow = more detail
    F9 = workspace 1 (source/record editing)
    F10 = workspace 2 (capture)
    F11 = workspace 3 (audio)
    F12 = color correction toolset 

    ciao,
    Carl
